Dear makers, creators, creative spirits and beautiful souls,
we are Sebastian, Veronika and Matt, three human beings in their mid-thirties. In the beginning of 2022 we bought an old farm house on a beautiful southern slope in the Austrian mountains. All three of us share extensive experience with living in communities and organizing community projects. Matt and Veronika recently became parents for the first time – so from now on our little son is also part of the game.
Now, after almost two years of searching, we were lucky enough to find our home! We are now in the process of creating a beautiful place for our little family here – and there is enough space for up to ten people to live surrounded by nature and find a path to a sustainable and peaceful life.
Originally the plan was to prepare the basic infrastructure on our own and then invite people to join us by the mid of 2023 earliest. But today, 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.
// Upcoming projects you could help us with: //
- Renovating the walls and floors in the first floor (Q4 2022 - Q1 2023)
- Installing highly energy-efficient split air conditioners (heat pumps) as a sustainable replacement for the existing oil heating system (Q4 2022 - Q1 2023)
- Maybe providing a room for (Ukrainian / Syrian) refugees for a few months (Q1 2023)
- Installing a completely new metal roof that can carry high snow loads (Q2 2023)
- Installing a 45kW Photovoltaic system on the roof in order to be energy self-sufficient (Q2 2023)
// Whom we invite to join us: //
We are open for people that want to wander with us on the Middle Way (in most aspects of life): We value both science and spirituality, honesty and empathy, technology and nature. We aim to create bridges between worlds and realities. We love creative and inspiring people who don't mind to get their hands dirty. Let's manifest our dreams together and create a save space for us and our children to live and thrive.
If this resonates with you and you have free resources (both in terms of time and money) to explore a potential common future, please reach out to us!
