I am an earthbuilding artisan with 25 years experience in using natural materials for home building. Since 2002 I run Solid Earth Ltd in Nelson and have carried out well over a hundred building projects in NZ. I have a background in architecture and building biology and am currently extending formalizing my study of interior design.
The focus of my work is state-of-the-art workmanship, artistc expression and the integration of natural materials into existing buildings and conventional designs.
My mission is to elevate natural building materials to the place of stardom they deserve and to empower people to take charge in creating their own healthy living spaces. This presentation focusses on DIY interior retrofits and small buildings not requiring a building consent, to open your eyes to the amazing advantages and versatility of natural building materials, especially Earth.
