We are renovating a 250-year-old building using natural materials.

  • Moon wood
  • Loam
  • Sheep’s wool
  • Hemp insulation

An electrobiologist is assisting us so that we can create healthy spaces that are as shielded as possible. To this end, shielding grids are to be laid behind the walls and in the floors.

You can support us in this work and learn a great deal in the process:

  • Laying sheep’s wool and hemp insulation

  • Filling walls

  • Fitting loam panels, as well as loam panels with wall heating

  • Loam

  • Laying electrical discharge nets
