Our next construction project is a small staff house. We need help caring for all these children and actually getting this farm to produce food. Labor in Kenya is not too expensive, and it will be great to help out more folks by employing them.
The house is a small two bedroom affair inspired by the bridge of the Enterprise from Star Trek. I know we deviated from the Middle Earth theme, but it will possiblly be named The Barrow.
We will be building it out of earth bags. More details to follow, but basically bags stuffed full of sand and soil and stacked on each other. Ninety percent or so of the construction materials will be sourced right here on The Shire. Good for the environment, and more importantly good for the pocket book.
The plan right now is for Andrew and a young man coming to help out on the farm to stay in this small house when it is finished.
