Description

My name is Maja.
My husband Alan (prodominantly :)) and I have built a small house made of natural materials (straw bales, clay, wood, sheep wool,living roof ...).
We used strawbales for the walls. The plasters are made of clay, sand, lime, straw. The house has a flat green roof (see the picture). We use a stove for heating (wood).


We love traveling but can't travel right now because with building a house and little kids our budget and time are pretty limited at the moment.

We are a family of four - we have two little kids.

We eat/cook pretty simply, we can take care for your food if you liked that.

We have two bikes you can use for cycling.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Update February 2014: at the moment we are not looking for any volunters. We still might in the future (the summer) for things such as setting up a shed and garden or things around the house, but not at the moment. Good luck!

Help

The work is very different - depends on the stage of building- from easy to hard work. We mostly need someone to help out with the house.
In June we will mostly be working on the plasters, the bathroom, waste treatment plant. So we hope that by the end of June the latest we will be able to use the bathroom completely, hopefully sooner.
We have set our minds to move in in August so from that point on we will be at the house all the time.


We are also interested in simple hand made furniture.

Languages spoken

English, Italian, Slovene

Accommodation

A volunteer would stay in a tent or in a house (no inside doors yet) that is being built in a small village. There is a bus stop 5 min away (walking).

What else ...

We don't have a farm of any kind at all at this point. We live in a town and are building a special kind of house in a village not to far away.

Ask us for any details, we will be happy to say.
