Up until four years ago I lived in an environment that allowed me to participate and sample some of this chaps ideals. The only problem for me was the surrounding area becoming a little less tranquil Wiltshire and a little more high flying hard nosed, city business retreat.
I now live in a suburban location that is less inspiring toward building these earthy, homely dwellings yet the people of the community already have this nice easy going, "live and let live" attitude.
It's a good swap!
Have a look at this video, Shelter, especially the bit about 4 mins in........... unless you are a "hard nosed" businessman!:
