Reclaimed floorboards and windows were donated
by customers of his local vegetable box scheme. Water comes from
an old well and a spring. Michael used no power tools in its
construction. The little cottage is used by Michael and seasonal

cost the earth; you only need earth to build it."
In the video above the picture right you can see another of

sunlight in a very special and magical way.
