We are a family with three children (9, 12 and 14 years old) living in Borredà, a small town in the pre-pyrenees. We have been building our own straw-house for almost two years. Now we live in the house, but is not completely finish.
The house is made of wood-structure and straw as a walls. All is plasted with mud (clay, sand, straw and lime). We used sustainable materials as much as we can. The electricity comes from solar panels, and the days without sun the stove heat us with wood. Now, we are working mostly in the outside or building furniture.
We are also interested in language and culture exchange for us and for our children.
We are bilingual, so we speak Catalan and Spanish natively, and we also speak English
We have a very friendly cat, and lovely hens.

Our experience could be very helpful because we are building our own sustainable house without previous experience. In addition we are building rather low-cost but on legal-way. And you could try to sleep in a very-comfortable-straw house!
You could learn how we are making this project and practice deferents kinds of sustainable building-works.

The accommodation is bedroom usually shared with other volunteers. The bathroom is shared with us.
We eat all kinds of food, mostly ecological. Vegetarians or special diets aren't any problem as long as you let us know. We'll eat together and we ask for share the basic houseworking and cooking. We provide the volunteers to all the meals, also in the free days if they want. We don't tolerate machismo so we share all the tasks regardless gender (couples, please adapt you to these rule).
Usually, after a week we use to have a talk so we all have feedback about how we feel with the exchange.
Our little town is in the middle of the mountain and we could show you wonderful hikes and also there is a river close to the house that is amazing for taking a bath.

Sergi works remotely at home, so there would be no problem to host a digital nomad. We have optical fiber at high speed.
Our street is very quiet, flat and has a nice view of the mountains. And we have a Campervan.
