Build Project Description

SORRY FOLKS, STILL HAVE NO DATE BUT WE’RE WORKING ON THE OUTDOOR KITCHEN RIGHT NOW! SEE MY OTHER PROJECT ~~~ I want to build a low impact cob house for my family plus two other women with kids and a little space for guests, creating a permacultural biotope with humans and some low-tech included. I hope this will serve as a model project to bring community building and low impact technologies to Germany. We’re in the middle of a small rural village on the Swabian Alb at around 950 m above sea level, in seismic zone 3, which means it’s a pain to get a building permit. The plot is very oblong and rather small, roughly 17 m × 50 m (east to west), that’s 838 m² or approx. 9020 ft² (or a fifth of an acre). To the east there’s the road, a wonderful large ash tree, and behind that a short downhill slope (the difference in level is about 1 m). To the far side in the west there’s a large shed. Apart from that there’s just meadow. On the southern border there’s another, larger free building plot (which couldn’t be had though), I hope that nobody builds anything on there anytime soon though, that would limit our solar access drastically and spoil all passive solar design intentions. Behind the plot there’s my grandparents’ house, currently being rebuilt, where one of my aunties and my sister and her family live.

Lots of beautiful places are within reach: The Danube valley where you can go canoeing etc., Lake Konstanz, a couple of mountains for climbing and bouldering, and that’s just off the top of my hat. A little research should reveal many more.

I’m an American internet entrepreneur currently in Barcelona and traveling around Europe. I’d love to spend some time helping on your property. I can offer my help as a volunteer, a business consultant, child carer and educator, English and music teacher, or pay for training if need be. I plan to use some of the techniques I learn on my land in southern Ecuador where the climate is perfect, materials are abundant, and help is very affordable. I need to solidify my travel plans soon, so please get in touch and let me know if we can work together.

Hello Gregory, I am very sorry about the late reply! I've been rather busy lately and hadn't checked in here for a while, and somehow I did not get my notification mails from thePOOSh... so I did not know that twelve people had tried to contact me. :-(
But anyways, we're still working on the building permit and so will only be good to go in spring next year (2016). If you happen to be around next year, I should love to hear from you again!

All the best, and sorry again for not getting back to you sooner!

Hi Anna, did you check your SPAM and JUNK mail folders? If you aren't getting email notifications, we could like to fix this!

Anna Kleiner's picture

Hey there, thanks for getting back to me! Well, all those messages were fairly old, and there's nothing in my junk & spam folders now... but there might have been, I really couldn't say. I was very busy with moving house and my kids changing schools and all last year, so I may have missed something. Anyway, it seems to be working fine now, I got a notification for this comment. :-) I'll keep checking and let you know if mails go missing again.

ich bin daran interessiert, euer Bauprojekt Anfang Mai zu unterstuetzen. Ich werde die naechsten Tage auf einem Seminar am Bodensee verbringen und habe anschliessend ab dem 4. Mai eine Woche Zeit.
Da ich gerade am Reisen bin, habe ich leider kaum Internetzugang, daher nur kurz ein paar wenige Infos zu mir: Ich heisse Viktoria; bin 21 Jahre alt und komme aus Rheinland-Pfalz. Nach meinem Abitur habe ich ein Jahr in Indien gelebt und dort als Freiwillige in einer Schule gearbeitet bzw. gelernt, und seit einem Jahr bin ich in Europa unterwegs (v.a. Deutschland und Frankreich), um zu lernen, Inspirationen zu sammeln und interessante Begegnungen zu machen. So habe ich z.B. schon viele Wwoof-Erfahrungen sammeln koennen. Ich interessiere mich fuer Permakultur, oekologisches Bauen, Selbstversorgung, ein naturnahes Leben und vieles mehr.
Ich freue mich ueber einen Anruf auf 0049 15732903512.
Viele Gruesse

Liebe Viktoria, tut mir furchtbar leid, dass ich mich jetzt erst melde! War schwer beschäftigt in letzter Zeit und daher hier nicht mehr online, und von thePOOSH habe ich keine Benachrichtigungsmails für neue Nachrichten etc. bekommen... dickes Sorry! Leider wär das sowieso nichts geworden, denn wir arbeiten noch an der Baugenehmigung und fangen erst nächstes Jahr mit dem Haus an. In den Sommerferien (August etwa) planen wir eine kleine überdachte Draußenküche als Testprojekt. Weiß nicht ob Du immer noch am Reisen bist, freu mich aber sehr, wenn's Dir nochmal reinpasst vorbeizukommen, wann auch immer.

Liebe Grüße von der nassen Alb

Can you update me on the status of the project, please? I hope it is going well! 
Anna Kleiner's picture

Hello Jamie, sorry I'm late replying! As for the project, well, another new year has begun with no building permit in sight. We are still working hard on it, but recent unexpected developments in my husband's work life have made us adjust our plans once more. We can realistically expect to get a permit for the outdoor kitchen in time to build it this year in late summer and autumn, and the permit for the house should be achievable in time to start building in spring 2018, as soon as the weather allows us. We'll spend this spring finding and moving to another flat, hopefully with new flatmates who'll join us for the cob house! :-D
