    Description

    Hi, we are Angel and Vale. In 2016, after joining experience putting hands in several houses, we started our sustainable house project in San Carlos de Bariloche. We use wood for the structure and recycled materials for filling the walls. Mud and sand and clay plasters. We build the whole project with the help of many helping hands.
    Unfortunately, on July 20, 2019, a large tree fell on our house during an intense snowstorm, destroying our dream completely. We lost everything; the house, the greenhouse, the pond ... even our oldest dog.
    Today, after an intense job of cleaning the land and a lot of help, we are building a new house with the same philosophy and materials as the previous one. We rely on self-construction, the use of recycled materials and collaborative work.
    There are still areas of the land to recover so the project is not only the house but also gardening, soil recovery and gathering of firewood among other things.

    Hola, somos Angel y Vale. En 2016, luego de juntar experiencia metiendo mano en varias casas, iniciamos nuestros proyecto de casa sustentable en San Carlos de Bariloche. Usamos madera para la estructura y materiales reciclados para el relleno de las paredes. Barro y revoques de arena y arcilla.Todo el proyecto lo armamos nosotros con la ayuda de muchas manos amigas.
    Lamentablemente, el 20 de julio de 2019, un árbol de grandes dimensiones cayó sobre nuestra casa durante una intensa tormenta de nieve, destruyendo nuestro sueño por completo. Perdimos todo; la casa, el invernadero, el estanque...hasta nuestra perra más viejita.
    Hoy, luego de un intenso trabajo de limpieza del terreno y mucha ayuda, estamos construyendo una nueva casa con la misma filosofía y materiales que la anterior. Confiamos en la autoconstrucción, el uso de materiales reciclados y el trabajo colaborativo.

    We are building the house from scratch. We invite you to participate in the construction tasks from the structure (walls, ceilings), installation of services, floors, etc. Then, we will use mud and recycled materials to fill the walls. We will also work with natural sand and clay plasters.
    The land is in recovery after the accident. We also need help with the overhaul of the soil, gardening, orchard and gathering of firewood.

    La casita la estamos construyendo desde cero. Invitamos a participar en las tareas de construcción desde la estructura (paredes, techos), instalación de servicios, pisos, etc. Luego, utilizaremos barro y materiales reciclados para el relleno de las paredes. También trabajaremos con revoques naturales de arena y arcilla.
