Most Unique Hostel in Africa!

on Monday, 20 May 2013. Posted in Construction

We are building the first "Log Home" to be used for student accomodation in Africa!

This weekend more than 20 volunteers pushed ahead on the construction of the first Canadian Log Home to be built on site. When completed, 10 log homes will house 80 students and teachers.

Driving between Jeffreys Bay and Humansdorp it is difficult not to see this peculiar structure arising behind Fountains Maill. This off course is the first of ten log homes that will be used for accommodation of students and teachers.

In line with the "Eco Friendly" design of our school buildings, these log homes are built to be sustainable and energy sufficient.

The simplicity of design and construction makes this the perfect project for volunteers and therefore we welcome any support from parents, students and friends.

Please see our Picture Report below.
