Long time no see!
Living without electricity definitely has its limitations!
But here I am with a little late update on our eco village project "Friskoven" on the Danish island Bornholm.

Update - mostly in pictures..!

So I moved into my little converted chicken house...;

And it's been a nice house for the summer. now the Danish Autumn is slowly setting in though, and we have had a lot of rain and humidity. The house is not insulated and has not heating (and drying) source, so it's already time to move out. We have a fire stove in "Smedjen"; "The Smithy", our communal building and we have build a loft where I started to stay in instead of the chicken house. I have no picture of the loft for some reason. I forget to take pictures of many things...!
But we also spend a lot of the summer taking away the old broken glass in the windows and setting in new ones! :
