Anne – The Creativity Cabin

My Cabin is a simple, grass-roofed, wooden building which has proved to be an extremely useful addition to our lives. It has been used an a office space, artist’s studio, temporary living space during a rebuild, storage loft, a pool/games room for loud kids to hang out in and as overflow accommodation for visitors.
The passive solar heating through the windows is often enough to keep a comfortable temperature. Even when it’s freezing outside the insulation is so good that a fire of driftwood or turf in the stove keeps the whole place toasty. I love the grass roof, not only for its beauty and eco-friendliness and all the wild flowers that bloom there in summer, but also because it absorbs sound and rainfall – even during a howling gale it’s peaceful inside.
It was a pleasure to be involved with Richie on the build. He came up with some great design ideas which maximised space and accessibility, gave great advice on choosing building materials and was willing to co-operate on building a bespoke space to fit the furniture and incorporate the second-hand windows and doors that I had located. He took great pride in his work and has built a solid structure that stood the test of time over a decade of storm-force coastal winds and severe weather. I can only imagine that these beautiful looking Arkipods will be similarly successful. Anne
