During 2004 The Farm worked with local villagers and foreign volunteers to build a community center for the village. The center is located on a hill overlooking the Nam Song river valley. The view from the center is rather inspiring.
Since then volunteers at The Farm have built similar-type structures on farm property. These buildings are used as accommodations for visitors to The Farm.
The mud houses are built from local materials as much as possible, using unfired bricks, mud plaster, and local lumber. The volunteer builders are very creative and decorate the houses with discarded bottles and with the basic construction materials, applied as a relief sculpture on the walls.After the walls and roof are built, doors and window frames are installed and "mud" applied to seal and secure the windows. Local plant fibers are used to reinforce the "mud". The final step of the construction is to apply a special mud plaster to the wall surfaces. When all of the construction is complete, the walls are painted to protect them from the elements.
