Insulating a Campervan with Cosywool
Cosy Campervan Conversion
Craig, Kirsty and Barra, aka The Earlys, are converting a campervan up in Scotland. It's a 2018 Ford Transit.

They did quite a bit of research before deciding on which sustainable insulation material to go for. In the end they plumped for CosyWool.  
"Would highly recommend using 100% wool - it's great to work with and we love that it's breathable and antimicrobial."

Pallets made into a Stunning Garden Planter. Finished with Auro Black WoodStain.
Pallets to Planter

Edwardian House Renovation on Instragram has a mission: to renovate their 1906 Edwardian home in Cambridgeshire. It's a huge project. Ellie and her boyfriend have essentially stripped this semi-detached house right back to bare walls and floors. On the way they discovered period features, sorted out damp problems and generally upgraded their new home to a stunning eco friendly and cruelty free contemporary interior.

Ellie's most recent project:  Upcycling some old pallets to a pair of garden planters.
"I painted them with Auro Woodstain because it’s a cruelty free/not tested on animals , eco-friendly product (& safe for pets & kiddies ) unlike Cuprinol and most other wood treatments that DO test on animals. To be honest , you would never know they were pallets. So , for the cost of a tin of wood stain, I have these two beauties." 
Ellie, Edwardian House Renovation.

We think they look fabulous in Auro 160 Black Wood Stain

Original Floorboard finished with Treatex Hardwax Oil
New life for Old Floor

Masie is slowly bringing an 1840’s Welsh cottage (and garden!) back to its former glory. It's another big project with many small projects along the way.

Here Masie is tackling the original wooden floorboards. After turning and treating the boards they are being finished with Treatex Hardwax Oil.
"Not looking half bad". 
Masie, Cwrtyffansi

We more than agree! They are looking stunning! Later photos on instagram show this bedroom floor and Earthborn Claypaint walls. Beautiful. Well worth a look.
