my (and now: our) dream is to make a Center for earth architecture here in Serbia…thanks to the competition of Cosmopolitan magazine, I won an old rammed earth /adobe house in a village of Mošorin in the end of 2010:my idea was to rehabilitate and reconstruct this house, in order to adapt it to the modern way of life. But first, we took of the pieces of old annexes (barn and stable):and it took much longer then expected, because I wanted to recycle everything we found there:and when it was almost done, this wall helped us and fell apart during a storm… our first helpers were Nathalie et Vincent, an architect and an engineer from France, biking on their way to China in 2011 – they helped us a lot with a destruction of annexes, making a wall around the pipe…and they started this nice path, that was later done by other friends (and that is today mainly covered with grass ;)when they left, colleagues of mine from France (and Thiago from Brasil) came in summer 2011 to help me do the diagnostics of the house: Mathilde Beguin, Mathilde Chamodot, Anais Geugen, Gregoire Paccoud and Thiago Lopes Ferreira:we took away the plasters on the bottom of the walls, so they can dry (if they are wet):then we lost part of the old rammed earth wall:Mathilde made some nice sketches:we took of bricks form main gable… and then they left:and several weeks after, wall that fell down was up again:during the summer school of earth architecture in 2011 we did the most important thing – we re-tiled the roof:this work also started when French friends were there – we took down all the bricks from the gable:and we replaced them with reed panels (one day we would make a green house here – it’s southern side of the house!):and it’s finally done:we just need some sun :)during the same summer school in 2011 we made an outside oven:and all the beams we took from the annexes got a new purpose – Nathalie & Vincent cut them and fixed them together:then during the summer school we made a skeleton out of it:in 2012 we made some walls out of recycled materials:and finally you could have some peace inside:in 2013 we put toilet and shower and we can use it now! (although it’s not totally finished yet!)the biggest work in 2012 was led by Gregoire Paccoud and we replaced an old rammed earth wall by straw bales:north side of the house before and after:with several layers of clay plasters:2014 we started with interior works: we want to take away all the plasters and to demolish some walls… here come the ovens in the end of June: we started a new barn, but it will probably wait for the next year to be finished…in 2015, we put pipes, we made floors, gables, and many other small works…in 2016, we restored doors and windows, put tiles on two floors, restored a barn, made a thatched roof, made an open kitchen and restored the lower part of south elevationin 2017, we were almost done with floors, we started building our kitchen, we finished the fence and we did a lot of plastering :)in order to have something like this one day :)see you around, during our workshops or some other weekends!
