Natural building course gallery 2015

These photos were taken during two separate CPD accredited natural building courses facilitated by Peter McIntosh during 2015 at Wild Spirit Backpacker’s Lodge. The courses are designed to teach participants how earth works, allowing them to make an appropriate choice based on materials available to them on their own site. Materials and techniques covered included, mud brick, cob, light earth, rammed earth, compressed earth brick, rock, natural plasters, foundations, walls, openings, passive solar design, basic site layout and how to test your earths.

These pictures are from the November 2015 course, held at Wild Spirit Backpackers Lodge, facilitated by Peter McIntosh. The walls and arched windows form an extension to an outdoor kitchen at the Lodge campsite. Wild Spirit is surrounded by the indigenous forests, pristine beaches and high mountains of Tsitsikamma National Park. For the complete course album please see our Facebook page.
