Most of us live in conventional homes with smooth, plasterboard walls, nice square corners, regulation height ceilings and perfectly symmetrical windows. They’re nice, they’re neat, but if we really, really look at them, most of our houses are very boring.
On the other hand, we have natural homes. Sure there might be lots of dust traps, but they appeal to the human side of our soul… that side that knows we are a part of nature. Most of us find natural homes strangely appealing because they offer a sense of tranquillity that is often lacking in our hectic lives.
There is something about being surrounded by nature that just makes us feel more at peace. Maybe it’s the fresh air or the calming sounds of the birds and the waves. Whatever the reason, there is no denying that there is something special about living in a natural setting.
For one thing, the façade of most natural homes makes them look like they came out of a fairytale. The interiors usually confirm the impression. There are no, or at least few, corners. There are nooks and crannies. There are textures and nature’s colours everywhere you look,.
This collection will take you on a natural home tour. You’ll discover the materials used in building these homes, and the effect they have on the aesthetics and the overall design of the home.
Check out these Natural Homes we’ve gathered for you.
Natural homes with reciprocal roofs always stand out. Their unique design is both eye-catching and functional, providing superior protection from the elements. Reciprocal roofs are created by crisscrossing beams of wood or other materials, forming a lattice-like structure.
This design is extremely strong and able to withstand high winds and heavy snowfall. It also provides excellent ventilation, keeping the home cool in summer and preventing moisture build-up in winter. Natural homes with reciprocal roofs are a great choice for eco-conscious homeowners.
Their use of sustainable materials and energy-efficient design makes them a wise investment for the future.
