2 & 3 Nov 07
Friday 2nd November and we're so close to finishing the walls for the main hut area. 5 volunteers from Sunseed and Santi from Madrid came to help. We flew ahead and finished 14 tyres.
Thank you everyone
Again, your energy and enthusiasm is inspiring. From left: Ivy, Lucia, Sofie, David, Sarah, Santi and Dave - we knew that by the end of the day 'we've found a Michelin' would raise a smile.
Santi stayed on to help us on Saturday. The walls for the main hut are now finished and ready to have the roof fitted. We were going to dig out the round room but we're waiting for building permission, so this week we'll be sourcing the wood so work can start on the roof.
Even though we haven't had it dug out yet we had some spare energy so thumped 6 tyres for the round room.
A poem by Santi
Each tyre a grain for a better world... and a blister on your hands
Each tyre an agreeable conversation
Each tyre a breath of fresh air
We hope you fulfil your dream to build an earthship too Santi. Thank you for your hard work on ours.
