    We're all about living in harmony with nature and doing things the old-fashioned way. For us, building our home isn't just a project – it's a labor of love, a testament to our commitment to sustainability, and a celebration of the beauty of the land we call home.

    Building tasks: Whether you're a seasoned construction pro or a total newbie, we'd love your help with mixing materials, compacting walls, shaping forms, and other tasks related to rammed earth construction.

    Cooking: In between building sessions, we'll need some helping hands in the kitchen to prepare meals using fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
    At least one day in a week we're going to beaches of Kaş to swim and rest.
