Handcraft my home
Last two years me and my boyfriend Jim have been living and building our home. We are off-grid, in the forest of Lahemaa. I love to experiment and learn about self-sufficient life - I guess to live this way has been a focus of mine the last few years. I love gardening, foraging, spending time with people and animals, organising events and randomly hit the road and let the road then take over.
After 1.5 years travelling in Venezueala, Caribbean, Mexico, USA and Canada with a VW bus I came back to Norwich, UK to finish my degree (International Development and Spanish) at UEA. Then me and my boyfriend Jim were travelling in Europe, visiting, volunteering and working in different sustainable self-build-sites. Still crafting hard, but we have the basics (electricity, water and food from the forest) almost sorted, in the summer time we have many volunteers staying over, who have played a very important part in achieving our dreams! Come and join the madness! Accepting quest as maybe, as in the winter/spring we are quite limited to space and our schedule can be quite hectic.
dream...because dreams actually come true
