'Sunwheel House'
The wettest Summer on record for 100 years according to the MET office and with Carmarthen being one of the wettest places we have ever built, we had the ominous task of building a 3 bedroom cob and hempcrete house for clients in these rather 'trying' conditions! Needless to say it is one project that will be hard to forget for numerous reasons!

The unique natural build is ‘ of the landscape’. The mass of the cob walls give the overall look a solid feel rooted to the ground from which it grows.
Curvilinear features reflect the flowing forms of nature (both exterior and interior such as the gentle curved window reveals) and will be enhanced by the soft lime and earth plasters and natural finishes.
The Douglas fir waney edge timber panels (with hempcrete insulation) on the North/South side of the house provides a natural and textural contrast to the cob walls which will age from a sandy colour to a beautiful shade of sliver.
The half round timbered balcony and internal staircase were a great success and fitted well with the thick mass cob walls.
The handmade oak and cedar window sills and boards complemented the pitchpine framed stained glass windows.
At the heart of the house lies a beautiful Rumford fireplace where the residual warmth reaches the upstairs bedrooms.
The wildflower living roof will continue to change over the seasons complimenting the natural landscape around the house. The house hugs the side of the hill making the structure invisible from the road above.
