The

water

from

a

nearby

spring

flows

downhill

and

is

channelled

to

the

house

for

washing

and

cooking.

Water

that

drains

from

the

roof

is

collected

in

a

pond

and

used

to

cultivate

the

garden.

The

family

has

learnt

to

reduce

their

water

consumption,

as

the

supply

can

only

be

replenished

when

good

rain

falls.

This

house

is

equipped

with

a

compost

toilet,

which

does

not

rely

on

water

to

flush

away

waste.

Over

time,

waste

products

are

composted

and

can

be

reused

to

enrich

the

soil

where

vegetation

grows.

In

Wales,

the

sun

sets

at

about

4pm

during

winter.
