“A brief interview with our friend Simon Dale talking about his experience with truly low cost, low impact natural building with local materials. Apologies for audio quality, we realise the music can be disturbing and that it differs greatly on different audio setups. Unfortunately this cannot be changed.”
Simon said the owner-builders in the Lammas ecovillage spend 50% of their time on paperwork and related tasks in order to comply with building regulations! I believe the planning commission does this to keep this type of building from gaining traction. Just imagine if the regulatory barriers were done away with and people were free to build as they choose. Millions of people (out of billions) who can’t afford a home would rush to natural building.
