  • Description


    Hello nice people!! We are Petra, Cristo and Zamfira, we are a romanian family who decided to escape the concrete jungle and make a shift in our lifestyle, so we've started this project of building an off grid house. We are building naturally, with wood, bales , clay and lime, so this would be an opportunity for people who want to learn this techniques,and also for those who want to experiment the off grid living. We have started this project near the city of Brasov, in the middle of Transylvania in a low plane with a beautiful view on the mountains, breathtaking sunsets and a peaceful atmosphere. We would be delighted to meet new people to help us with the building and share beautiful moments together :)
