    RECONSTRUCTION PLAN - PREVISIONAL FINANCES - march 2013


    So that i might have a shelter as soon as possible, a « usta » (master in work) has been contacted and should take the hard work construction of my house.
    Only hard work, first for financial reasons, second because i also wish to add more personal decoration and for this friends will be invited, specially KYK team who is supporting and helping from the beginning.

    So the usta work will  consist in
     concrete basements, isolation from the soil with stones
     earth brick walls with earth and straw if possible, if not, ciment sand and lime.
     flat roof out of concrete, with inner isolation out of earth bricks
     doors and windows have been bought second hand, wonderful pieces of worked wood. The usta will build the wall accordingly.
     a small pond in front of the house will collect rain water and allow some water plant to live and bring some freshness.
     dry toilet will be inside the house. See drawing.
     bath room with a bathtub, and water goes into the garden, only ecological soaps are used.
     two large terrasses, one for mild and cold weather, facing south west, and the other one facing north east, will be for hot times. Plants like grapes, kiwis, will provide shade.. and fruits


    The work should start beginning of April and should last around 10 days.
    The expanses are covered by the donations already received.


    SUMMER KITCHEN

    Already started, it takes place using the carpentry and roof of Chandi. The tent will be removed, palets will be place on the floor, and walls will be covered with wood.
    A channel will be digged to avoid flooding.
    There is already a sink, and gaz cooker.
    Grey water is directed to the plants , bamboo, papyrus, willow tree, mint...
    The expanses are covered and work has started.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SECOND STAGE: SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEM + FIXING DAMAGES 1 + FINISHING MY HOUSE
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEM

    There will be two steps according to finances :

    First step: To have minimum electricity for the computer:
    Only ONE solar panel is needed, ONE accumulator, ONE charge controller.
    The 600W inverter is already in the farm and should be enough here.
    In the further steps, more elements will be added.

    Second step : allowing the drilling water pump to work so as to supply water to the trees.
    There a more powerful system will be needed (1kW)
    Around 10 m2 solar panels, a SECOND accumulator, a 2000W inverter, and all accessories like cable, posts etc..


    FIXING  DAMAGES 1

    WATERING SYSTEM

    Both water pumps have been untouched by the fire :o)
    Yet almost all pipe network has burnt and will have to be replaced.
    400 meters small droplet pipe + 100 meters large pipe « kangal » + some little material, vanes...

    DURGA’s ROOF

    It flew partially away during a winter storm.
    According to available money, we shall fix either the damaged part only, or recover the whole roof (which will have to be done at some point due to the fragileness of the roof and the strength of the winter storms)

    SARASWATI’s LEAKS

    Some burning particules having reached the roof, there will be some places to repair. And mostly the front of Saraswati will have to be arranged for it becomes flooded during storms.
    Material: wood, plastic, clothes..
    Most of all: creativity and some hand work to fix it all !

    FINISHING MY HOUSE

    We hope to be able to host in Autumn the KYK team who could teach us techniques of ecobuilding which we could as well apply to my house, realising nice coverings and decorations.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    AFTER WE MANAGE TO COMPLETE THESE FIRST STAGE WORKS AND SECOND STAGE OF FIXING, THE YUNUS EMRE FARM MIGHT BE ABLE TO HOST AGAIN SEMINARS, PROVIDED THAT PARTICIPANTS CAMP IN THEIR OWN PERSONAL TENTS;
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    THIRD STAGE : LOTUS POND’s FIXING  + COMMON HOUSE ANAHAT 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    LOTUS POND’s FIXING

    Half of the geomembrane EPDM has burned, and the other half might be fixed, presenting only small holes caused by burning pieces.
    So the present idea is to make the pond smaller, arranging the earth all around it, including around ANAHAT house (which would be near the pond) and using the available geomembrane to cover the pond. Slopes would be smoother, dimensions would be more appropriate.
    The faisability is still under study. There would be mainly bulldozer work and fixing, manoeuvring the big membrane...

    COMMON HOUSE ANAHAT

    We were at this stage before the fire. So we shall soon come back to this stage, after completion of the previous steps.
    AnAhat house will provide shelter for seminars during hard weather, as well as offer home for residents, participants to seminars. It should be suitable for all weather, including extreme hot and extreme damp weather that we have here.

    The study has to be restarted from the beginning according to the new situation.
    The KYK team is supporting and guiding for this work, and hopefully will be able to come to guide a solidarity ecobuilding camp.
    Present idea is that ANAHAT house could be build around the ancient burned house.
    The ancient burned house would be transformed into a green house.
    Thus ANAHAT could be created around a nice green fresh place like a patio...
    Something like this...
    And of course cost will have to be define...
    Lets see..
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Do not hesitate to come again later in the year to learn about the updates and events planned like building camps....
