Halfway!

20140711 aardehuis 0001A new milestone in our building: Friday July 11th the twelfth earthouse was delivered. This means that we are halfway the building process!

At the current pace all houses will be finished by the end of the year.  The community building will be the last one to be built during the spring of 2015.

Continuation of building with straw bales

The house will, just like all the others, be delivered unfinished and it is the last house which will have a back wall made out of car tyres. The other eleven houses will get a back wall made out of straw bales. At four of these this is already visible.  This wall has in the meantime be plastered with sand-lime, so that the straw will stay proctected against the elements.
