a mosaic of cut log ends…

Whilst the interiors of this barn conversion in Austria are a little too coldly architectural for my liking, I love this external wall. It evokes a favourite Roger Deakin quote. (It’s also a bit daft that it’s the north facade of the building as the logs will get no sun on them to aid in their seasoning.)

The other thing I always notice with these European conversions is how they would never pass British building regulations – for example, on picture number 10 (the one with a blurry man going upstairs) there appears little if not no insulation in the roof. The budget of 70,000 euros also suggests an ‘unemcumbered’ build.

If you enjoyed that post, then read these…

Insulation ~ Cellulose Fibre
Often made from recycled newspapers, cellulose fibre is a loose fill insulation.

I’ve really enjoyed Roger Deakin’s ‘Wildwood: A Journey Through Trees’, the book takes you on a gentle journey, part biography, part manifesto, part travelogue.
