We are ecologically renovating an old house with straw-bales and clay. We are looking for straw bale / clay building enthusiasts, who like to make their hands dirty.

Hosting gives us the possibility to travel while staying at home. We enjoy making vegetarian dishes, but occasionally we eat meat. Joris is a professional wood fired clay stove builder. An recently started as a full time ceramist, making hand crafted pottery.

There is still a lot to do in the house. We are building it in two parts and the first part is as good as finished. We had a lot of practice at building our workshops and now we can start at the main building. This part also will be build with straw bales and clay and we will build two rocket clay ovens. One stove for cooking and one for heating water. There is a lot of interesting work to be done and we can use helpers who like playing with wood and mud. You can find some pictures of the building site via our first website link above.
We live in another house (co-housing with my nice parents) where there are two extra rooms for our host.
