  • Description


    I'm Serge from belgium ,i speak english-french-dutch and some spanish.I have travelled the world but always wanted a place for myself one day...It took me almost 10 years(i did not have any skills)to build a house in stone, and than sold it to have money to start my project.So I bought a beautiful 5000m piece of land in Pucon, surrounded by mountains at the foot of a vulcan, 2 years ago ,to follow my dream of creating a sustainable living for myself ,family and friends.The idea was to start first
    with the building and later a garden, fruittrees,and some animals. The concept of the house is a airbnb with welness, witch would serve both as my house and to provide some income in the summer months from tourism.The finnish sauna and hammam are ready for use.The sauna works for 80% on hot water, generated by a woodstove, but will work on hotwater solarpanels in the future.The whole house has central heating with floorheating.The house itself is a low energy building with alot of insulation,with mostly natural materials including a straw-clay finish.Because i do everything myself, and the house is almost 200m2 , there is still alot of work to be done.I believe it is an interesting project for people who want to learn more about, and how to create a sustainable (building),life for onself.And to learn more about different techniques, regarding building a sustainable bulding in wood that can last +100 years.Some of the techniques i use(d) are: a flat roof with epdm membrane with stones on top.
    thermal mass walls, with clay/cement/woodship/sand mix.
    ceramic tile mosaics in the showers.Sand drainage to clean grey and black water, and a water well.
    A 2100 l hotwater storage tank with epdm liner with 3 inox tanks inside(tank in tank system) for generating hot water for the floorheating-sauna/hamam and shower with low-energy pomps working on 3 diff temperatures .
    Because off the many things that still need to be done , people can choose what they would like to do and learn.So i can arrange the work according to your preferences.As you probably know , Pucon is very popular for outdoor sports ,so there are many things to do around Pucon.Rafting-canyoning-fishing-climbing-mountainbiking or just hiking in one of the national parks that are easy accessible.I made many friends in those two years , including people who can take you on a guided tour in your free time or just to enjoy a campfire in a tipi or jump in the river.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Not that long ago, i never thought possible, i was capable doing of what im doing right know.So for people out there who feel,think or believe that they are not capable of doing are !!!
    If i dont know how to do something and that is for most things, i just watch a youtube video ,and do exactly the same.Not very difficult and by doing so you can learn almost anything.I always wanted to be independent,to take care of myself .I dont expect the current pension system to survive or enough for a decent life, and the thought behind my project is to create abundance(food&shelter) and a basic income(from toerism)for myself and people around me,for the rest of my life.I believe we have to learn again to live together, and help each other to create a sustainable life , including our own pension system.
    It does not have to be toerism, but anything you are capable of doing at old age.
