It has been part of the vision for the wood from the outset to build an off-grid, sustainable, field-study base and volunteer room, one that is sensitive to its surroundings and sits well in the landscape.
The portable cabin and shipping container that we have are the beginnings… We are in the process of raising the funds needed to transform them into something that looks very different. An outline plan, currently with the planning department, can be found in the photo gallery.
We are actively seeking builders, alternative energy installers and those with a flare for small-space design to help us with this project. Anyone, no matter how experienced (or otherwise…) is welcome to join a team who will be working on this with a view to starting building work in the spring of 2019. Anyone who would like to help with construction is also welcome to get involved.
All offers of help - whether practical or financial - will be much appreciated.
