Hi, I’m Elke
I enjoy this life as it unfolds every moment and believe in the mystery that we share. Right now you are looking at what I do and who I am.
That’s part of the magic already!
If this sounds flaky to you that’s not how I am. I build houses, help people make dreams come reality. With 20+ years of natural building experience I feel that you can get reliable answers from me. If we have some face-time or real face-to-face experience, I’ll be listening carefully to your questions and give you honest answers. If I don’t know, I will tell you. If I’m excited I tell you.
I love working with people who are keen to practice what we’re talking about. Theory is easy…doing it is where the courage is. I have taught hundreds of people like you to build with earth. Some have gone on to become professional builders, others have built their own house. Some just had a fun adventure away from their day-job. I’ve called my design service “Houses that love you back” – because that’s how natural homes feel. Join me for a tour and feel it for yourself. No two buildings look the same- they emerge from conversations about dreams, and become clearer as we explore your needs and limitations.
It doesn’t matter where you live- I have experience working in different climate regions and different cultures. Working together builds bridges. I speak English, German, some French and a little Kiswahili. Sketches and hand-signals do the rest.
Here’s a wordcloud of what matters to me…
