In summers 2016 and 2017 we carried out two clay building workshops in Viljandi county. The workshops covered the general principles of clay building, cob techniques and building of Rumford fireplace and pizza-oven.
During the last few years we have contributed to the development of the houses in Ristiku 21. The process has been thorough and of good quality. The result is beautiful apartments in the renovated house by the street and in the yard house, which was newly built up on the old foundation.
Lately we finished a big interior renovation project in Kalamaja, on Volta street. It is a home which is built together of two apartments. We renovated one half completely and we made smaller works on the other half. The result is cosy and beautiful.
On 25th May the Tallinn City Planning Authority awarded the owners and the executors of works for exemplary renovated buildings. One of the awards went for the facade in Kadriorg which was renovated by us.
As usually, we had a big facade work in summer. This time in Kadriorg, Köleri 4. It is a big and beautiful Lender house where a lot of unique decoration style for wood has been used - wooden lace. We renovated altogether a little bit more than 400 m2.
The main outside work last summer was a renovation of a wooden facade in Nõmme, on Liiva street. It is an old house built of horizontal logs covered mainly with vertical board. Previously we have renovated the plastered facade of the funkhouse in the same yard in 2011 and made the interior works in 2012.
Our Erasmus+ tadelakt project "Developing methods of teaching tadelakt and natural building and creating wider opportunities for adults to learn it" is going to end soon and in May we had the final project meeting. This time we met in springtime in Estonia.

In the middle of October we had another meeting in Portugal of our Erasmus+ tadelakt project "Developing methods of teaching tadelakt and natural building and creating wider opportunities for adults to learn it". We spent an intensive week in Portugal.
Within the project "Complementary courses about natural finishing" our professional Taavi went to two courses in London in July where several decorative and imitating finishing materials and techniques were introduced. One aim of the project is to gain and develop the experiences in finishing techniques like stucco, marmorino, etc., with the purpose to carry out workshops about those topics ourselves in future and to introduce those materials and techniques.
