That Roundhouse


Hello. Welcome to That Roundhouse. This is an ecohome of wood frame, cobwood and recycled window walls, straw-insulated turf roof; with solar power and wind turbine for electricity, compost toilet and reed beds for grey water. We designed and built it over the winter 1997/8, and it was turned down for planning permission several times. After several court appearances, we decided to demolish it over Easter 2004, but changed our minds after demonstrations of huge public support in its defence….. For more see

  1. We went and visited Tony’s home soon after he built it and have been watching the journey this home has taken him on and the inspiration he has given many to build like this. Tony is a true pioneer. All credit to him.

  2. Tony is building a roundhouse with reciprocal green roof in July 2010 in Poland. All 4 weeks of the workshop cost only £90 per week.
