If you are interested in knowledge about autoconstruction and bioconstruction and challengings you will be very wellcome now in our project to finish and help with the roof .We are now in the third stage of the construction of the eco living shed: the roof. We make the structure with bamboo so we can use its flexibility and strength to have a wavy shape that follows aurea proportion.

We finished the walls last June. So we were for some months very busy focused in preparing compressed earth blocks with earth, water, lime and a machine. Let them dry and laying the blocks to raise the walls.

We will be happy having helpers helping in that.

Our project is to develop a piece of beautiful and peaceful land in a place to live and open to share with others, a natural place that gives you the necessary to live without spoiling a bit the environment, improving and preserving it. We believe that is possible to live in nature and from nature in a respectful way.

Right now we grow organic vegetables, herbs and flowers in a spiral shaped garden, so part of the food we need is from our own garden.
Accommodation takes place in a Mongolian yurta (round tent), manufactured from natural materials. We are making the furniture needed inside the yurta from discharged industrial wood that we transform and recycle.

We also have started to construct a kind of living shed through a bio-self-construction basis. The first part of the self-construction consists in blocking, make ?? compressed earth blocks (BTC).

We would like to share with people interested to learn or to teach in green building, permaculture, organic gardening, artisanal work, altogether we can learn to be more self-sufficient in the basic things of life.
