We are a young married couple at the start of our life together and we are looking for your kindness and help.
the past years we have been planning and working to build our
family-pension house. Unfortunately, due to ever increasing construction
materials- and labor-associated costs we have hit a deadlock and are
unable to find a solution or path to successfully finance the ongoing
construction alone and complete our project.
The project consists of an amenity building (garage, storage, and technical & main heating room) and the main house building (eco-friendly and energy-efficient A+), which will in part host us, and hopefully a baby in the near future; the other part of the house is a pension “project” which we envision it to be a retreat place for people visiting this beautiful area. Staying at our pension house, guests can escape the busy city-life and reconnect with nature and themselves.
Our journey began about 4 years ago when we decided to use our savings, and income into bringing to life this dream of living together as a happy family, while helping others reconnect with nature. We hope our family-pension house will provide guests with a quiet and healthy retreat place. One could visit the wonderful and remote surroundings. The area where we are building the house is close to the mountains with beautiful views, historical and natural monuments, monasteries (one of which is part of the UNESCO world heritage), and remote monk sanctums. Local activities such as pottery art creation, pottery museums and fairs (also part of the UNESCO world heritage), traditional farming, fishing, as well as hiking trips to mountain paths, among some connecting to remote monk sanctums, or motorized quad travels through the nearby forest paths to find wild mushrooms and mountain berries, or even truffles or just to enjoy the view, are all to help one disconnect from the noise of modern life and allow them to connect with nature and traditions.
To date, we have used ALL our savings into to bringing this wonderful project to life. We managed to start 3 years ago – in 2019 – from getting all the permits necessary for the project, to land preparation and project implementation. Due to excessive (from 30% up-to +250%) price increases in both construction materials and associated-labor costs in the past 2 years, we’ve hit a deadlock due to cost estimates being excessively overreached, and so we are unable to successfully finance our project and finish it before the construction and implementation permits expire in May 2023.
So far, from the implementation and construction perspectives, we have: managed to fully fence the property, plant over 400 Thuja trees (July, 2019 – from 12 cm all growing healthy to over 1.7 m high), execute land preparations for construction (property access road/entry, excavations, post-excavation structure wall, water and sewerage works, under-terrain drainage, electrical power and internet connection), construct the foundations and the resistance structure, mark the power and the heating channels for the two buildings; as well as construct the walls for the amenities building.
our monthly income as a family does not provide for a realistic roadmap
which can allow us to continue and finish the project in due time, and not encounter more
obstacles – such as new permits required past May 2023, ever-increasing
prices to all construction-related materials, services and labor. Therefore,
with our future guests in mind, we thought of YOU–a great community
which could help us bring this project to life!
In this, we are giving it a try for this fundraising campaign which we see more like as a “loan” – we'll detail below how we envision this mutual help that can provide for this beautiful project to be successfully implemented; it will bring happiness, joy and hope to us as a family, and to many other people in our country and around the World choosing to retreat to our place.
