    We are a couple, Boris and Eva, we are designing a farm to move towards self-sufficiency, right now our activity is mainly focused on building a bioclimatic house of 4 meters in diameter, which we intend to be as sustainable as possible, requiring minimal energy and the necessary is totally clean and self-generated by the house itself.
