  • Description


    We are a family with three children (7, 9 and 12 years old) who lives 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 already finished at all.
    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.

    We are also interested in language and culture exchange for us and for our children.
    We are bilingual, so we speak Catalan and Spanish. Anyway our English is good enough.
    We have a cat.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    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.
    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.

    We are asking for help in building (with limestone, stones, wood,...) and gardening tasks.
    Also we and our children, want to improve our English or Spanish skills.

  • Hébergement


    The accommodation is an diaphanous space in the upstairs straw-house usually shared with other volunteers (or friends of us). The bathroom is shared with us.
    The Internet access is not always very good, and we should share the amount of dates.
