Description:

The Stables are quite possibly the lowest impact structure on the project. The roof structure was built using reclaimed trusses from the local reclaimed wood market, while the load bearing walls were built using traditional rammed-earth made entirely from local soil. Old villagers and craftsmen were hired to build these walls. The process was also documented by the project owners seeing as this ancient craft is completely lost amongst the younger generation. Similarly, the stone walls throughout the site were built using local stones and traditional techniques that are rapidly disappearing from the area.
