Nine homes using different natural materials for their roof... some lasting 100s of years.

These homes all use different natural materials for their roof demonstrating the material's versatility, and in many cases longevity. Many types of natural materials have been used for roofing, but the majority fell from favour throughout the 20th century. This was partly because of improvements in transport. It was also because their care and maintenance depended less on the availability of cheap local materials and more on the owners ability to pay for services. Over about a century of development this path has disabled many people from building and maintaining their homes. If you would like to learn how to build with natural materials search through our natural building workshops .
