Set on a steep hill leading down to the River Windrush, Burford has a fine collection of topsy turvy cottages, ancient stone townhouses and a host of tea rooms and antique shops. Burford gets pretty busy but its picture postcard streets are well worth it and if you wander off down the laneways you'll be transported back in time. There's an excellent garden centre on the outskirts and the lovely Cotswold Wildlife Park just down the road.
This quaint, Greek revival style Georgian house with its perfectly mathematically balanced ratios has elegance, balance and harmony - for the better! All windows are perfectly symmetrical as are both chimneys. The position of the door and the complimentary style of the door frame empasis the harmonius alignment of this wonderful house.
This is the house Chris Magwood built for his mother, Sandra Zabludofsky. It's near Madoc, Ontario, Canada. Chris built the straw bale house in 2004 using earthen plasters and all local materials. It's an off-grid home without a straight wall in the house. Enjoy the natural homes collection at www.naturalhomes.org/house.htm
