Ever wondered how to build a house? Join a group of women for all or part of this 2 week event - no previous experience needed! We will be making the structural Timber Frame for an energy efficient house that has been designed close to PassivHaus standard. The course is being led by 4 women timber framers: Astrid Arnold, Barbara Czoch, Iso Barnden and Maude Star. You can book the dates that suit you, and we recommend to book for at least 5 days. The cost is £50 per day or £400 for all 10 days. To get the most out of the course we recommend to book for the whole 10 days.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials will be provided. There is camping available at the venue. We will be working in a big open shed on a beautiful farm on Dartmoor. It's in an ideal location for stunning walks or swimming / paddling in a river nearby. The only things to bring are sturdy footwear and a packed lunch each day. Shops and pubs are only 5 min away.
