If you’ve been longing to change your life and make a difference, then this is your invitation to join us for our upcoming natural building course. Since 2010, Peter McIntosh has taught more than 300 owner-builders and architects the hands-on practical skills and theoretical principles they need to build and live more naturally and sustainably.

You will gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence to build your dream home on our CPD-accredited natural building courses; and leave feeling connected to the earth, and empowered to change your life with hands-on practical skills and theoretical knowledge on natural building and sustainable living practices.

YouTube made it look either too easy or too hard, now I have more confidence and a better base of understanding.
