Our guests usually know what they are writing. Truth be told, it is probably because of this that they come. They want to see, touch the walls, smell, and see for themselves that the house they spend the next few days in is straw and clay. And standing, inside you can not hear thunder during the storm, it is never wet, in winter it is warm, and in the summer a pleasant chill.
We created these homes from dreams about something that has already become history. We remembered this story, opened ourselves to knowledge, we noted with interest, and then created a settlement of clay and straw in the middle of Bory Tucholskie. We invite interested and suffering from cough. Straw Zeal heals the city and allergies.
The settlement came from a dream about life closer to the village and health. The idea to build houses made of straw-clay logs was created in parallel. We collected knowledge with care, and then, together with Paweł Sroczyński and the Cohabitat foundation, with the help of the Polish UNDP Design Office, we set up the first Polish nanohabitat in our lake. We enjoyed each stage: from ironing straw, to putting traditionally a Kashubian roof of shingles made of spruce, or dormer. The workshop was assisted by young people from the Sociotherapy Center in Łódź.
