Main House

Once our the roof is complete, there will be much to do in the main house:

  • Applying clay to the walls.

  • Building simple, wood furniture for the rooms

  • Creating lamps from a wood, paper and willow branch technique

  • Finishing/Refurbishing antique furniture

  • Laying electric cables

  • Sanding wood floors

  • Working creatively with the old doors

Alpaca Stable

Clay, wood and a green roof. It is not too complex, therefore we plan to use our own trees and recycled materials. Here you are welcome to join in and learn something about wood, wood joints, alpacas and alpaca stables. Trees can be stripped, or the basic steel structure derusted.


This large concrete space (1000 m2) is screaming for paint, plants, trees and art. The plants and trees have to wait until construction on the main house is complete. The outer walls and doors of the industrial halls can already be painted; their sad, gray color transformed into gleeful colors. In the future there will be lots of opportunities in the courtyard for artistic actions, which we warmly welcome.



Employing permaculture ideas and principles, we have laid raised beds between rows of fruit trees and berries, followed the lasagna bed model, mulched intensively, collected rainwater, but still can’t keep up with the garden. WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE HELP IN THE GARDEN!! You are welcome to apply your know-how here and go for it!


Escape Room (the old boiler room)

The plan for the old boiler room is to be transformed into an escape room with DDR flare. Slowly we are collecting ideas for a story. At the moment the space could use a thorough clearning and cleaning.
