Roundhouse-style Shed Construction at Cambrian Wildwood

After the success of the compost loo build (the lucky first ‘customers’ will be announced in a prize draw soon), Mark Vrionides will be leading the wildwood build crew in construction of a ‘mandan’ style roundhouse, which will provide a workshop space and tool storage for the site. Volunteers are very welcome once again to get stuck in. This time around we will have a series of volunteer weeks for specific parts of the build that volunteers can sign up to. These will be great opportunities to learn amazing skills and have lots of fun on site. These weeks are as follows:

Monday 9th – Friday 13th September
Roundwood framing part one – selecting the poles, stripping bark, cutting joints

Monday 23rd – Friday 27th September
Roundwood framing part two – preparing foundations, cutting joints, trial assembly

Monday 4th – Friday 15th November
Building with straw – constructing straw bale walls
[two separate weeks, volunteers welcome to come to one, the other or both]

April 2020 (to be confirmed):
Coating the walls – lime rendering and clay plastering

If you like the sound of any of these and want to pick up some of these skills please let us know on
We will be providing lifts from Machynlleth, there are opportunities to camp on site, and the wildwood itself is one of the most beautiful spots around. Get in touch for more info!

Thanks, the wildwood crew
