Heartwood Natural Building

About us

Hello, I'm Richard Sylvan, I have a love of creative and natural building, I have 10 years experience working with Roundwood timber framing, strawbale, cob, lime and turf roofs. I have built two homes for myself using local and reclaimed materials and have been running courses for 9 years.


For busier courses I employ other tutors to make a well rounded learning experience.


Staci Sylvan is an experienced willow worker and natural paint maker.


Giles Scott is a builder with over 25 years experience and our engineering expert



A fantastic place to learn about natural building
