Natural Building

Want to have a little tucked away place to get away to on your property? Having issues with the county and want a solution that is legal? Depending on your site you can legally have other structures that are less than 100 sq ft built without a permit and can be built with beauty and onsite natural materials. We specialize in light-clay-straw (LSC), straw bale and cob structures. A hybrid of all three we believe is ideal; straw bale on the north side, LSC on the east & west and cob on the south or front of the building. By having a passive solar designed building the temperature inside stays comfortable all year long, saving time, energy and money required in cooling and heating.

If you want or need a building to be permitted it can be done through Nevada County R301.1.1.1 Alternative provisions for limited-density owner-built rural dwellings, also referred to as Title 25.

We can come out and do a site assessment and get a rough estimate of what it would cost for a project. 530-205-6505
