The

timber

frame

was

constructed

first.

It

is

made

from

spare

wood

recycled

from

the

surrounding

woodland.

Later,

the

roof

was

added.

It

is

designed

as

a

simple,

self-supporting

structure,

and

is

also

built

using

natural

pieces

of

timber.

It

was

quick

to

erect,

but

is

extremely

strong.

The

inside

of

the

roof

is

lined

with

plastic

sheets,

to

prevent

moisture

spoiling

the

interior

of

the

house.

The

exterior

of

the

house

resembles

the

hobbit

houses

in

The

Lord

of

the

Rings

movies.
