Build Project Description

When we are talking about pre-prepation it means exactly that. We are practically in a process of researching everything, including the land. We can not tell when the project will begin until at least we secure the land.

Structure of My Build Project

Building Styles Integrated

Rammed Earth
Straw Bale
Local Materials
Round Wood
Timber Framing
Wood Shakes

Sustainable Systems Integrated

Grey-water re-use system
Food system integration
Indoor plumbing
Natural Furniture building

Build Project Facilities

We have no site yet. A lot to sort out yet.

Activities near the Build Project

The river Danube is near by, but still a walk. The beach, hidden behind woods, is primarily used by the local people. You can have a walk around the village - some lovely houses there; beautiful village atmosphere.

What to Expect about Food

We will provide the food
We are great at cooking our own vegan food. However, there are people who produce their own fresh eggs and milk in the village, and we can buy from them. Meal times are when people are hungry or need to snack.

Previous Building Experience

I'm an Interior Designer with a practical experience in renovating 200+ years old house in the UK and Spain. The Andalusian houses I was involved with were built with natural materials: mad, wood, stone, straw in one wall. The best time of my life has always been when working on a house.

Type of Volunteer Being Looked for

I need people experienced in drawing the plans, calculating the bales needed, plumbing, building with natural materials, wood frame, and straw bale builder(s), and someone with experience in the entire process.

Where you will be Sleeping

The volunteers will be sleeping in tents. If you are like me you would probably want to bring your own. If not, let us know, and we'll arrange one for you.

Hi Michael, 

You are most welcome! 
Great to have places like this one. 
Thank you for maintaining it! 

Thank you the offer! I'd rather keep the project a bit more 'private', 
but I'll surely update it when there's something worth saying. 
Thanks again!
