About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

I have a charming timberhouse that i want to transform into a zero energy house integrated with a greenhouse.
One of the roofs has a perfect angle to the south.
The lower parts of the timber is rotten and needs to be replaced.
Windows need to be replaced and strawbales can be used for insulating the walls.
Greenhouse on the south side of the house.
