Thank you

Many thanks to everyone who came to celebrate the topping-out ceremony with us last Friday: our architects from Planwirkstatt, the carpenters from Zimmerei Grünspecht eG, Mayor David Faulhaber, neighbors from Schwabenheim and many supporters from Feldwinkel. Special thanks go to those who decided to support us with a direct loan 💚 The Tante Hilde Brass Band created a festive atmosphere and a great party in our new house! The first of many. It was a huge group effort, we are happy and proud.

Construction site tour on 01.12.23

And just like that, within a week, our beautiful new house is now standing here in Schwabenheimer Hof! The passionate carpenters from Zimmerei Grünspecht eG really impressed us. They were on the building site until late hours to finish our house according to plan (and before the rain forecast for Friday). And they did it!
We can hardly wait to discover our new house – and we invite you to join us: next Friday, December 1st, master carpenter Markus Wolf will give a tour of the construction site at 2 pm. Join us to explore the house, which was designed for a community and built from wood, straw and clay!
Because the building site is keeping us busy at the moment, the Open Living Room in December will not be taking place. If you would like to get to know us, please come to the building site tour on December 1st or to the topping-out ceremony on December 8th (or to both!).

Construction site peeking on 22.11.23

The time has come: in two weeks Zimmerei Grünspecht is coming to Schwabenheim to put our house together. Made entirely from wood, straw and clay! Come and see the construction site from 10am on 22.11.23 – we will be waiting for you in our garden with coffee and cookies. More communal living space for the region!

Feldwinkel visits Zimmerei Grünspecht

Some impressions from our trip to Freiburg last weekend. This is where Zimmerei Grünspecht eG is building our new house, from wood, straw and clay. It looks and smells great! The pre-made elements will be transported to Schwabenheimer Hof and the house will be put together on our building plot in the second part of November. When we were in Freiburg we also got a chance to visit a couple of other houses built by our carpenters. Thank you Zimmerei Grünspecht for your hospitality and making our vision of community living real! See you soon in Schwabenheimer Hof!

The earth is shaking!

From months of planning, discussions, worries and challenges now suddenly becomes something very real! The earth is shaking. The construction of our new house has officially begun!

By the way: our construction fence is see-through. So whoever wants may easily watch how unsellable common property is created here 😉. We will be posting regular updates from the construction site on our website under “New building” and on our Instagram.
