Creación de un estilo de vida sostenible en Patagonia  パタゴニアでサステイナブルな暮らし作り

Finishing The Interior 内装が出来上がり始めました

We`ve finally got around to finishing the interior of the house. And I`ve decided to take a siesta! A great addition has been the very comfortable queen sized futon. Walls have been lined with Tepa, a local wood, and jute, which allows the earthbag walls to continue to breathe, which makes the air so fresh inside the house.

The wood when it arrives is roughly cut, so there`s lots of work in the finishing, but it`s a nice colour and I try not to overfinish it, as the beams in the house are rustic, to say the least. 

Temperature has increased inside and it`s ten to twelve degrees centigrade above the outside temperature on very cold days. The Korean caligraphy says `happiness` and was a gift from our friend Moung-He Oh. We also have some lovely caligraphy from Japan and China that will soon adorn the walls. More pictures will be added as things progress.

Is that the window left of the front door?

Beautiful interior, very restful.
