A Little about Me

We are a young family (Joost, Nanouk and Roan. 33, 30 and 1 year old). We recently discovered that sitting in the office is not our cup of tea. We are therefor on a 'sabbatical' to discover what else there is in life. We did quit our jobs and sold our house in the Netherlands to travel through Europe in a caravan for a while. I would like to help and learn with any natural building project. I am technical and handy and would like to help with any natural building project. I also like to garden or cook. My wife can help taking care of kids.
