Timber frames Design and Build
Timber framing is like making large Furniture, it takes great precision and skill but the end results are strong, environmentally friendly, and magnificent structures. Also here we try to work with local wood as much as possible in round our squared form.
We offer many types of structures such as cabins, outdoor kitchens and pavillions from design to finish.
Clay works great for any situation whether it’s a renovation project or on a new house. It looks beautiful, it helps regulate moisture and it is a healthy, natural option.
We make our own mixtures with local clays when possible. Our experience with clay ranges from stove building, clay plasters to full on Clay wall systems like: Cob, strawbale, light-clay and more.
Plasters can be made with different textures and colors to get a desired look. Clay walls can also be painted on with natural paints if a specific color is wanted.
Clay plasters work especially well in moist areas in the house such as entrances, bathrooms, and kitchens.
With clay anything is possible!

Hi! I am the founder of Light Feet Living. I Started this big adventure back in 2011 when I attended a Permaculture design course or that is when it really picked up speed. I started gaining a more holistic view of the world and really enjoyed learning about this more sustainable lifestyle. I kept on traveling for a while helping out on different projects that were dedicated to self-sufficiency. This broad view of the world and the eco-system set the base for my building practices, dealing with our most basic needs; Food, shelter, heating, water and community. My main focus after a while became Shelter and heating. After some internships and my own learning experiences, people started getting interested in what I was doing and wanted me to teach courses at their venues. I have since 2011 started a permaculture project in Sweden, built many stoves and natural structures, taught natural building in Guatemala, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark and Nepal. On top of my experience with earthen materials, I am a trained and certified Timber framer from the Island school of building arts, B.C Canada and also Attended a Tinyhouse building programme in Swedish University. Now I help people plan and build the structures of their dreams and continue to expand my skills at home in Sweden.
