This is a unique home, made entirely of natural materials - timber & straw. Beautifully fitted out & elegantly designed, this home is part of the innovative We Can Make project, which shows how homes can be designed, made & delivered by people doing it for themselves.
Every aspect is designed to be environmentally friendly & to look after your health & well-being. Triple glazing, clay plaster walls, walnut floors, locally made furniture all mean your stay will be a truly unique experience.
It’s all yours. A 400 sq foot one bedroom apartment layout with separate double bedroom with ensuite shower and WC. The living room kitchen is open plan with a walkout large private deck and zen garden. There is a fold-out futon sofa-bed that allows up to 4 people to stay.
It’s fully self contained and all of it’s yours. Access is via locked security gates where you can park your car. Code available via booking confirmation. We let you know how to pick up the keys.
Interaction with guests
We live just across town. So we won’t cramp your style. I can be with you in 15 minutes if you need anything sorted. During the day you have access to the Filwood Community Centre and its courtyard garden. The Centre has a café, check in with Centre Manager for opening times.
Other things to note
This is a pretty unique place. It’s part of a Bristol initiative called We Can Make, an initiative that allows people to be involved in the making of their own homes. This home is a ModCell TAM made of straw! It was designed, manufactured and assembled in Bristol, using local skills, labour and materials. This is the first of many to come.
