Why you should build ecologically
After we have already written about sustainable tourism, renewable energies and passive houses, the topic of ecological building also comes up. As you can see from the word ecological, this is a way of building houses that are made entirely of natural materials.
There are already many building materials that come from nature. Today we are mainly concentrating on the clay. We will show you some beautiful adobe houses that can not only be admired for their sustainability, but also look magical and fascinating. You immediately reminded us of the hobbit houses from Lord of the Rings. Curved lines, cute oval windows and doors, thatched roofs – simply fantastic.
