Special fondness we have for this building as it was our first. It is a 50 m² house in Portugal, situated in an ecovillage.

It was built in a mixed model where the owners of the house participated in its construction.

It is a house entirely built of wood, as an insulation we used pine bark, which is very common in that region. The roof carries an insulation of natural cork in a sandwich panel and a green plant cover. In order to reduce the environmental impact, a dry toilet and photovoltaic panels for electricity generation were installed.
