“Eric Maddern creates an award-winning “Shangri-la” of natural building in Snowdonia. His buildings re-create indigenous house styles around the world, using natural materials such as wood, mud and straw. He has an octagonal Native American hogan with reciprocal frame roof, strawbale walls and a lime render, a roundhouse with thatched roof, a cob cottage, a cordwood log lodge and a real-life replica of a Hobbit hut!”
