the buildings at pompanuck are constructed with natural, alternative techniques including cordwood masonry and straw-bale.

the roundhouse serves as the center of Pompanuck's many activities. It contains most of our sleeping, dining and work space. It is a very comfortable and flexible building where there is wireless Internet access, distinct meeting areas and rustically elegant comfort.

Upstairs in the Roundhouse is our sun-soaked Great Room, which is a flexible use space. This room has been the site of many of the lectures, concerts and classes held at Pompanuck. It has the capacity to seat 50+ people comfortably for lectures and concerts and can be used for movement classes (Tai Ji, Yoga, and Dance) for 10-18 participants. The Great Room can also be converted into an intimate "living room" with couches and comfortable chairs for smaller meetings and retreats. There is a full balcony running around the exterior of this room, accessed by French doors, looking out over our gardens and grounds. Many fine musicians have noted that this room is remarkable for its excellent sound quality and intimacy.

The Roundhouse also holds our lending library containing over four thousand books of diverse topics and interest.
