Link to the Case Study:
This project proves that it is possible to build houses relatively cheaply and in an environmentally friendly way, using materials from nature. No need to buy expensive building materials, which are polluting to produce and transport.

The website shows that it is possible to build environmentally friendly houses on a relatively small budget, you just need to lower your expectations and understand that even simple natural materials can be used to build beautiful and habitable houses.
