Emma's Off Grid Pembrokeshire home

Emma's Pembrokeshire Hay Bale home

How glorious is this little earthen home in Wales?

 Owner Emma built this beautiful little home for only £1000 using a straw bale, house manure and cob construction with a fabulous living roof which not only provides shelter but keeps the little house a hidden gem from the outside world. The house is comprised of just one room and is totally off-grid with no electricity or running water. Instead Emma collects spring water from a nearby steam and uses candle and the open fire to light her home at night. She has a compost loo and uses the stream to wash.

Emma has lived off this land for over 20 years in a series of homes that she has built, some more successful structures than others that she has built using a trial and error method. She  previously lived in a farm house on the land with her late husband and children. When the children flew the nest Emma felt comfortable to move out of the farm house and live closer to nature building herself this little home.

I really would urge you to check out the interview with Emma over at Living Big in a Tiny House where these beautiful pictures come from.
