A series of earthquakes shook our island in the past month! Although us and the project stayed safe in the south of the island, people in the North suffered a big hit. Because of low quality local construction 67,000 houses were destroyed, and 350,000 people were left to live in make-shif camps.
We decided to get involved to introduce the super-adobe technique to the islander, as it has proovedto be earthquake resistant.
The first Dome is for a family of 5. They have been sleeping outside since the first earthquake hit six weeks ago!
We hope to build and teach super-adobe technique to the residents of this beautiful village near the waterfall to make sure no-one else becomes a victim if the earth decide to shake things up again!
Thank you to everyone who supported the cause wether it was by donations or giving our local team courage and confident not to give up when things were tangled and the earthquakes seemed never ending!
Our crowdfunding is still open if anyone like sto support a long term housing solution of the people of Lombok.

After building through a heavy rainy season, we have learnt an important lesson about sustainability that we like to share with all like minded people out there who are also thinking about building the eco way. We are making a confession about how we’ve become more flexible towards using materials we thought we’d never use. Read more on our sustainability page "concrete confession".
