  • Description


    Hi there, welcome on our page.
    We are a family of 6, including 2 children and 2 cats. At this time of writing we are busy with the project called our house. We are expanding and modernizing our house with the goal to make the house well insulated, sustainable and with minimum energy needed for living. We live in a small place called Epe, located in the centre of the Netherlands, close to a number of interesting cities.

    So we bought an old farmhouse 3 years ago, the house is over 100 years old! And we are gradually renovating and expanding the house. We have done a lot in the last 3 years, rearranged the layout, new roof, new windows, floor insulation & floor heating, new expansion for the kitchen.

    As a plant enthusiast we also have a lovely garden that has a variety of edible plants.

    We are a young couple that love to just do it yourself and we love teaching our ways to other people and learning from each other!
