Natural Building Companion

This DVD "companion" was a little different than our usual DVD projects. We spent 12 weeks filming the construction of a timber-framed straw bale building. The DVD is included with the book (a true companion to the book). As the reader reaches points in the book that have supporting video, there's a "call-out" to that video segment on the DVD.
