Short-ish post where I’m mostly thinking aloud, about what kind of look I like and also what I don’t, and about our surroundings in this village.

very nice door inside the EarthshipRecently I went on a guided tour through Germany’s first Earthship. That was super interesting!

Some thoughts I’ve been having for a long time about the fine balance between private and communal rooms, drawing from my experiences living in a community with improvable space design for about four years.

side view sketchOur latest versions of the floor plans, along with a few more rough elevation sketches to help you understand how the house will fit into the site. There are still quite a few question marks, and they’re only accurate to about 15 cm oder so, but I do feel they’re really, really good.

playdough experimentsAs I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m really no good at juggling objects with three dimensions in my head. So it being winter and the mud outside being a little too cold for my taste, I obtained a recipe for perfect, cheap, and fairly stable, playdough to try and externalise the muddles in my brain.

We’ve been sketching and drawing and measuring and planning since the beginning of November, and I feel this whole process is so exciting that I simply must share some of it with you, right now. There are definitely still a few corners where I need to make some changes, but I do like it a lot already.

As I said before in my post on the Klimagarten workshops, I am very fascinated by the idea of a solar desiccator. So far I’ve come up with quite a few use cases for it, as well as a sketch with some ideas on improvement.

book coverThis is honestly one of the most enlightening, perception-changing books I’ve ever read. Not only would I press it upon anyone thinking about building a house of their own, I’d also wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone studying any kind of design.

snailhouse planThis house has been a long time in the making. Currently I’m in the process of really deciding how many people to plan for – not an easy thing for me to do! On the one hand, I don’t fancy living alone (alone meaning me, my partner, and the kids), but on the other, I need to be able to build this thing in only a few months, weather conditions on the Alb being what they are.
