Kate Burt added this to Which Alternative Materials Could I Use to Insulate My Extension?1 December 2020

HayAlso waving the flag for minimally processed, breathable materials is hay. What could be more natural than dried grass? The idea is that hay is used in bale form, making for a very solid building material.A benefit of using hay bales to insulate, Phil says, is that – with the addition of a mesh product – you can plaster directly onto it. “As long as you’re using lime,” he adds, “because it flexes to stop it cracking.” The bales are packed into wooden frames.Hay is a much more specialist option, and not generally suitable for a small, urban extension. “You’d need some serious space to use hay, as the bales can be half a metre thick,” Phil says.

Glazing defined by architectureGlazing can be used in wonderfully stylish ways, even in very old buildings. Here, the spaces between the huge timbers of the roof truss and the rear wall of this house have been delicately glazed to wonderful effect. With the addition of a simple pair of French windows, this kitchen can feel both part of the original structure and also open to the beautiful garden in a very contemporary way.Which option would you go for if you were redesigning the back of your home?
