Eco-building Workshop, Day 3: Woodshed construction

Hot, hot, hot. Stojan led us through the whole process – preparing wooden beams and boards for the construction of woodshed’s floor and side walls (measuring, sawing, planing, screwing…). Constructed walls were placed as a result of teamwork. Inbetween two more boxes of the residential building were filled with straw insulation.

Katja’s risotto with mushrooms & tomato salad was just fantastic reward for another day of hard work. Evening fire, observing the starry night sky, local wine… and a good night’s sleep is all that we need.
