We are looking for help with building our round-wood timber frame stable. This is definitely a big challenge where a bit of power, courage, persistence and maybe some experience come in handy. We ll put pictures below. We are now preparing everything to throw on the roof.
We're a young belgian couple, Wouter (36) and Leen (32) with a 2,5 year old boy, Emil . Since 7 years we are living our dream. Having a smallscale selfsustainable farm. We love growing our own food and build our own buildings, work hard and being our own boss, doing this in an ecological way.
We do believe this world could be a better place. But we choose not to scream out that it all has to change, but rather do it... If you believe something has to be different, do it differently ;)
For a living we have 5 beautiful jersey cows from whoms milk we make delicious matured cheese. This cheese we're selling at the local farmersmarket.
We build exclusively with naturally materials, in none of our buildings we've used any concrete. We very much like building with wood, straw and cob.
We also prefer to do all the building ourselves, which cost a lot of energy, but learned us a lot through the years. We believe we are an interesting place for people who would like to start a small scale self-sufficient farm in the future. Besides the wide range of skills we gained through the years, you could learn a lot from our mistakes as well :)
