Step by step

We have been living by this beautiful lake for 2 months now, it is just so precious and lucky that we have the chance to live in the nature. Every time, after we make a day trip to Berlin, we just feel so happy to come back here. We can also truly observe the change of our surrounding, we can see swans strolling on the lake or flying above the sky like a plane, we are happy to create this connection with the nature before it disappears.

At the moment we do not have kitchen or water supply yet in the house but we have the feel that we are actually having a pretty luxury life here with a warm and comfy shelter where we call home. We have a common shared kitchen, shower room and toilet on this land, we are actually not in the rush to have all this in the house, but hopefully we will have a kitchen by this summer. Our life now is like someone would pay more than 200euro a nights for a glamping experience in the nature but we are actually living in it.

By now, we have installed 2 very important systems in the house which is the heat exchange ventilator to decrease the humidity in the house and also a heating system that run by gas. Beside that, we also already have electric supply in the house. The house will be slowly be completed.

There is nothing perfect in life, perfection is boring.

I just can’t wait to start growing some vegetables. I have actually created compost heaps here and there to cover the open soil. I also have created a garden bed, I would like to do a small experiment of what I have learned in the past few years. I have collected horse manure, rotten wood, our veggies waste and also coffee ground from cafe to make the bed. Hopefully worms will find the cozy home very soon that I have created for them.
