I am Bodo Noah, professional Software Engineer. I have been working as IT services consultant for major companies in Switzerland for over 9 years.
Passionate about natural building, I have decided to master the subject.
At the time of writing this first article, I have read a couple of books and watched some videos on natural building. However, my skills and knowledge are almost at zero.
I am intending the build this new skills through reading, workshops and eventually some short training sessions on architecture.
My first objective is to design and build a natural house. Through this site, I will share with you my journey toward that objective.
What is natural building?
A natural building involves a range of building systems and materials that place major emphasis on sustainability. Ways of achieving sustainability through natural building focus on durability and the use of minimally processed, plentiful or renewable resources, as well as those that, while recycled or salvaged, produce healthy living environments and maintain indoor air quality.

Natural building for me includes also all the techniques for making your house energy efficient and using natural energy (i.e. natural lighting or heat) as much as possible.
