Yorkshire company Ecobuild UK is doing good business and winning recognition with its environmentally friendly holiday lodges near Richmond. Made almost entirely from timber and glass, the lodges have 10m-long larch beams forming the main roof structure. Sedum roofs are intended to compensate for grass lost at ground level. Windows are recycled and south-facing to make the most of the sun. Inside, there are bespoke kitchens, bathrooms and solid wood floors. There is also a large area of decking outside.
