Why use natural materials?

The construction industry uses huge amounts of energy & resources each year in the UK. By using natural materials with low embodied energy we can mitigate some of this & reduce the amount of non renewable resources used. Many conventional materials such as building plastics, treated timbers, paints & insulation can all introduce harmful VOC's into the home. The use of natural materials means these chemicals are reduced to a minimum resulting in a healthier home. The use of natural breathable materials can also help to regulate moisture & eliminate damp & mould with in the home.
