Time to learn how to become more independent

Being able to build your own house from natural materials is so powerful. Especially when it is done by unskilled people, like us. It makes natural living and living without a loan or high monthly expenses suddenly more accessible. 

That is why we are up for a brand new challenge!

We gained a little bit of experience

Matthias went to a weekend to learn how to build a straw bale house and Evi volunteered during the weekend where the cob was build to cover the walls. 

When we moved to Spain we knew nothing about building, but over the past three years we have gained experience with (pallet) wood working, screws and machinery. 

Now we feel ready to take on this bigger project!

Building a 40m2 straw bale building

How are we going to do this?

The foundation

Describe your service here. What makes it great? Use short catchy text to tell people what you offer, and the benefits they will receive. A great description gets readers in the mood, and makes them more likely to go ahead and book.

A new fence and two gates

Out of pallet wood, we made a fence and two entrance gates. One for the house and one for the farm. This project was challenging because we decided to build a little wall under the fence, to keep the 'rustic' style of the village, and we made three meter wide gates, which needed to be level. It all turned out very pretty.
