The one day course will explore common issues associated with the traditionally constructed solid walled stone buildings, typical of the National Park. We will discuss the reasons why some of these buildings have damp issues and are difficult to heat. We will then look at ways to rectify some of these issues using natural and traditional materials that will allow the buildings to breathe and perform better.

There will be plenty of opportunity to have a go using the different materials, which will include insulated lime plasters, natural fibre insulation and alternative materials for insulating solid floors.

By the end of the day, those attending the course will generally have a better idea of what materials complement older stone properties. And they will have been given the opportunity to discuss their own projects during the day and try specific materials and methods that might best suit their project.

Arranged by the National Park Authority and The Natural Building Centre Ltd.

The sessions will be held predominantly through the medium of English, however it will be possible to communicate through the medium of Welsh.
