HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ALL AT TY PREN!
Last year was full of firsts for us and a great coming together for all involved in the company. The first residential self build frame for the county, honing and strengthening of skills and relationships and a great new website!
The movement towards low impact living is really gaining momentum with more and more people looking for alternatives to the main stream. Questions about how we can live a more carbon neutral lifestyle are being asked, and there are so many people doing amazing things to answer them. It always takes time for new ideas to filter through, and one of the aims of Ty Pren is to bridge the gap between self-builders and local councils. Roundwood timber framing provides a strong framework for affordable, low impact homes that are sustainable, beautiful and a big step in the right direction towards a zero carbon Britain.
With this in mind Jamie and Ray will be teaching a 5 day roundwood timber framing course at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth in May. Please click on the link for further details. Roundwood course.
We’ll also be at a number of festivals over the summer doing workshops and talks so keep an eye on our blog for more details.
