We are an ambitious couple and our live-in architect, all in our early and mid 30's, working together to design and construct our home and fruit-tree orchard in the south of Spain. We're located on the terraced mountain slopes of the Ecoldea del Minchal,and we've got stunning views of the Mediterranean just at our feet. We use local materials taken from their source and traditional construction methods, and we're constantly critiquing and testing materials and systems technologies in an effort to construct a home that is responsible in its use and allocation of resources without great sacrifices in comfort or durability. We speak English, Spanish, French, and Swedish, and if you're up for it we're happy to try to figure out how to communicate regardless of what language you speak. We're looking for people interested in learning about the ways in which we make buildings and grow crops while working side-by-side with us to make it happen. Some of the construction methods we're using are rammed-earth walls, dry-set and lime-mortared stone walls, lime plastering, straw and mud wall construction, hand hewn and joined log structures, planted roof, and many other simple but highly-efficient strategies for dealing with building and living in our specific- and very awesome- location.
