Dear makers, creators, creative spirits and beautiful souls,
In the beginning of 2022 we bought an old farmhouse on a beautiful southern slope in the Austrian mountains and we’re in the progress of building a community project here. There is enough space for up to ten people to live surrounded by nature and find a path to a sustainable and peaceful life.
We share extensive experience with living in communities and organizing community projects. In 2022 Matt and Veronika also became parents for the first time – so from now on our little son is also part of the game.
Originally the plan was to prepare the basic infrastructure on our own and then invite people to join us later. But with all the crazy shit going on in this world (e.g. people starting new wars, instead of fighting climate change) we feel like it might be a good idea to speed up our process, step out of our comfort zone again and invite people to join us right now.

// Notes about infrastructure: //
The building structure of our house is in good condition but the interior is basically a huge construction site. We have approx. 600m² to fill up with creative ideas for living together. If you joined us right now, you would have to settle for a rather low level of living comfort. E.g we can not heat every room and all floor coverings are under renovation. You could move into a single rooms temporarily but you would have to change rooms if renovation proceeds. But hey, let's celebrate that we are lucky enough to already have water, electricity, internet and a warm shower - which is more than most people have on this planet.
// Ongoing projects you could help us with: //
- Renovating the walls and floors in the first floor
- Installing highly energy-efficient split air conditioners (heat pumps) as a sustainable replacement for the existing oil heating system
- Installing a completely new metal roof that can carry high snow loads (almost finished)
- Installing a 45kW Photovoltaic system on the roof in order to be energy self-sufficient
- Drainage and drying of the walls of the house
