We live in a remote village in the valley above. Our house is one of three (farthest away in the picture below) including our partner’s house (right) and a house formerly occupied by another family which is now our office, meeting space and guest house.

We collect rain water from our roof in the 7000 liter tank below.

We have a pump that provides pressurized water throughout our house. We have sinks, showers and flushing toilets. We do have to filter all of our drinking water.

Our electricity comes from solar panels on our roof. We have to be conservative with what we use, but we have enough power to run tools and kitchen appliances during the day and lights after sundown.


We even have hot water, heated by the sun in the panels and tank on our roof (below.)
