A gap year.....

After seven busy years, we are taking a year out from running The Natural Building Centre to focus on family, and projects at home and afar.

We have closed our site whilst we carry out the next phase of works here - structural repairs to Plas Tirion, and the final stages of repairing our 1498 cottage.

Please get in touch with us by email or phone, for conservation work, bespoke training or timber from the sawmill.

About the Natural Building Centre

We believe that everyone can learn the skills required to carry out authentic and lasting repairs to their historic structures, which respect the tradition, aesthetics and fabric of the original architecture. These include the practical techniques needed, as well as a foundation knowledge of the right materials and how to source them. Most of all, our ethos is all about a sustianable future for traditional building, whether thats keeping valuable skills alive or using local materials that are readily available, and avoiding wherever possible expensive packaged product, which is heavy on plastic and road miles.
