We skipped a few steps: drilling the 11 meter foundation poles, and then adding the concrete beams. All that has been done, and the foundation floor is ready to be placed on top. This is what the building site looks like today:
Add gravel. Sand is nice, but your truck still gets stuck, so we need gravel.
Add sand. Without a layer of sand, all heavy equipment would disappear into the mud of former seabed, so we need sand.
Digging. We’re already 3,5 meter below sea level, so let’s dig until -4 meters.
This will be the access road to the wooden house.
The building season has started. Step one: measuring the plot.
This is Oosterwold, early March. Oosterwold is Dutch reclaimed land, synonyme for: wet, dikes, wind & rain.
And mud, until the roof rack…
Here we will keep you posted about the progress of this house.
