Mission Statement


Desert days was created as a way fulfill principles to live by, simplicity and close contact to earth. A journey through time, to the period when we did it all by ourselves. Our aim is to give our guests a real desert time, a time to enjoy peace and quiet, joy from simple activities and an experience of Nature close by.

Description


We build with hay bales; this method has three important advantages: environmental friendly material, thick walls that keep the heat and cold outside, a cozy soft look to the house. The building process: preparing the foundations, building the constructions and the final part is earth plastering The plastering is made of three layers: sculpting layer, clay layer, exterior plastering layer We are using sand from the area close by and mixing it with clay, keeping a ratio of 1:3 sand: clay. Through hard work, wondering and learning we create and build all by ourselves. We will be happy to share our knowledge and experience.
