Artistic natural building

Yes, this August brought the project up one level ! The house full of motivated people, the dishes full of delicious food and the result could not have been better. This last month we carried out two beautiful natural building projects, one for the garden and one for the living arrangements in the house.

For start, the gardeners shelter, a project led by Angelina. A piece of cob art next to the flourishing garden could not have been a better match, well done ! Material for the bench all local 😉

Then a pending project for over a year now, was planned and executed in just two weeks with remarkable results. The living room is now completely different, with most of the sleeping space on top of the mezzanine ! Locally harvested cypress, eucalyptus, pine and olive wood was used, together with some chessnut poles, a donation by my uncle, Andonis. Here goes the timelapse video of the project, with appropriate music from Valentin (I ll sent you the money for the copyright with bongo).
