Heidi's straw bale, cob and earthbag cottage in Finland


The roof of this tiny cottage in Finland is made from a ring of roundwood timbers interlocking and supporting one another. This self supporting roof is called a reciprocal roof. The design leaves a circular hole in the roof that forms a skylight bringing light directly into the heart of the home. The cottage was built by Heidi who makes beautiful ceramics and jewellery in her shop called TaikaEarth. Take a look closer look at this cob, earthbag and straw bale cottage.
