Natural Building

Natural building simply means building with natural materials. The materials for such construction are ideally sourced right on the building site and include clay, sand, straw, wood, and stone. Sourcing materials locally means that fossil fuels aren’t used transporting the materials, all materials are more sustainable and renewable, and they are not as toxic as the plastics, petrol, and other chemicals used in commercial building.

Natural building is a part of Deep Ecology. These images demonstrate what’s possible using natural materials.
