We are both educated designers, Laila is a ceramic artist and Nikolaj is working with graphic design. We are both teachers at a danish folk high School teaching sustainability and ceramics. We have 4 children on 0, 7,16 and 21 years. .
We are a normal family trying to live more sustainable - so we are on a journey of sustainability. The biggest project is the straw bale house we are building - but trying to improve our lives in many aspects.
Bricolage et projets de construction
We will be working together on the house - so there is a natural learning from doing the work. Beside that we will show you the eco-society and tell you about our take on sustainable living. We love to inspire people!
We are building the (maybe) wildest straw bale house in the eco-society in Denmark. It is a flower shaped house with a Beech tree as a center to hold the roof.
Insulation is a combination of paper-insulation and strawbales. Inside walls is COB (clay) The walls will be clayplastered and the roof will be a living roof with grass and flowers. The walls have different heights all way around, so the roof will be like a fan (or a natural landscape). A lot of professionals told us we can´t build a house like that - but we are doing it anyway :)
We are building everything ourselves. We are trying to use all the best sustainable materials, but are also willing to compromise when the situation demands it.
We started building in february 2020 and expect to finish it by 2025...!
1-2 volunteers are needed but our circumstances are a little special at the moment. We just had a little baby, and most of our time is going with her and other children. So if your looking for a social experience with us we can´t offer that at the moment. If you want a stay where you are mostly by yourself - possibly with another volunteer if your alone (we have space for two at a time), a simple job 5 hours a day making clay cladding on our house and can cook yourself (we provide nice permaculture vegetables and other food) its perfect!
We eat lunch together in weekdays and some evenings dinner and we try to be at the building site with you - but often its not possible due to work and childrencare.
What are we looking for?
We expect you to be good at English (or Danish)
- Clay cladding
- Other stuff :)
You are always welcome to visit our building site and see the project!
We can offer accommodation in a house-wagon at the plot - with personal bathroom and small kitchen
Friland is an ecosociety with 40 sustainable houses of very different kinds. So there is a lot of inspiration to find here. It is situated in the beautiful hills of Mols in Denmark - one of the most scenic areas of Denmark. Ten km from the ocean, a nice lake and forest that you can bike. And furthermore 45 min. from Aarhus - second largest (and most hyggelige) Danish city.
