locally produced clay blocks were used to create a structure of the extension and famous Baltic Pine was chosen for roof construction, roof and façade cladding. Reclaimed wood from the demolished building was recycled, treated with a mix of wood tar, linseed oil and mineral pigments and used in the interiors. Where needed, surfaces of monolith concrete and fibrolite blocks were insulated with eco-wool or left exposed treated only with nature friendly tints. The house is mostly hand-made as the building techniques and materials were made by local builders and craftsmen on the site. To sustain local environment, heat-pump and floor installed water pipes are used for heating. Household biological wastewater treatment plant deals with the sewage.
