The majority of the buildings we design are loadbearing, with full planning
and building regulation approval, and we have been involved in several

as it involves extra cost and reduces design simplicity.

One of the buildings we have been involved in, the largest strawbale

We have built several buildings using car tyres as foundations. All have
full UK building regulation approval ... 
Now *this* is interesting. Are any of them load-bearing (Nebraska) or are
they timber frame?
