We are a small team of three people building a heaven in the mountains of Bulgaria.
We started 5 years ago with my brother to restore our old family house in the village of Shumnatitsa in the South Bulgarian border. We started with our own funds and put every cent, sweat and tear in this project. As there are difficulties such as normal internet connection, constant water and electricity supply, bad road conditions etc. we need to perform some general rehabilitation actions, which will do good for all the village population.
The Final target is a Welcoming Eco Sustainable Holiday Villa and strengthening the society relations in the village of Shumnatitsa with various green projects in the area while also increasing the usage of renewable natural resources and energy consumption reduction.
We made the furniture out of recycled wood and old furniture, we create everything with our own hands - from the first sod until the end.
•WHO are you?– We are two siblings (29 and 30y.o) Valeriy and Vladislava from Bulgaria The main star here is my brother, he works fully devoted on our project: as a construction worker, art master, carpenter, welder, paving specialist and any other activities that we may need for the project he masters them extremely quickly and applies them successfully. He had learned the basics of the construction as a profession from my father. My father has retired last year and came back to join us in this project.So we don’t use construction crews and masters as they cost money, WE DO IT BY OUR SELVES!
