A new building made of wood, straw and clay
Together with the carpenters at Grünspecht eG from Freiburg and our architects Karin and Ralf Vogel from Planwirkstatt, we are building a house from renewable resources (wood, straw and clay) in the highest energy efficiency class. This new building with its approx. 570 m² of living space will enrich the two old buildings that we already occupy as a community with several apartments, numerous common rooms, a WG-friendly floor plan and flexibly usable rooms. The three buildings facing each other will be extended by the divided garden with courtyard character and the various terraces, verandas and communal balconies.
We spent the first half of 2022 working intensively with our architects on the floor plans in order to submit the building application in December 2022. In September 2023 the foundation work here in Schwabenheim has started, while at the same time the walls, ceilings and roof elements of our house are being prefabricated in the halls of Grünspecht. The house should be move-in ready in the summer of 2024.
We can’t wait!
