Extension in a conservation area, Hook Norton, Oxfordshire
This extension was difficult to get passed by the planners, who had particular ideas of how it should look. Straw Works adapted the original design to be a loadbearing straw building. SNaB ran training courses for straw, lime and clay and one of our trainees worked as a professional builder on the project.
