    Description

    i'm a musician and music teacher at the local art school, and my wife is theater designer. we have two kids, Arann and Ananda.
    We are building our family house. It's a straw bale house with round wood logs structure and clay/sand plaster.
    It's located in Lago Puelo village, Patagonia Argentina. A very touristic place (in summer) with rivers, lakes, mountains, etc...
    A lot people have come to live here seeking an alternative way of living, closer to nature and oneself.

    Soy músico y profesor de música, y junto a mi familia (Camila y mis dos hijos Arann y Ananda) estamos construyendo nuestra casa con técnicas naturales, fardos de paja y barro.
    Vivimos en Lago Puelo, Patagonia Argentina, en un valle rodeado por montañas nevadas,cerca de ríos y lagos. Muchos de quienes viven acá se han mudado buscando una manera alternativa de vivir.
