While in the UK I focused on what to do with the land, and decided a small B&B would be perfect. But I would not be able to afford a conventional building – unless I wanted to stay in the UK for at least a decade – so I began to think about building with natural materials. I went on several workshops and I was sold! If I won the lottery tomorrow I would still be building with natural materials!
I left the UK November 2012 and have been in Chiang Dao ever since, and I am building the most amazing domes with colourful local workers and wonderful volunteers. This Blog tells the story of how we built the Chiang Dao Roundhouses B&B.
