The land sleeps in winter, but we are still active. We found snow when we came in December, so we left the car in the village and walked up.
Being here makes us happy
Two weeks later, we surveyed the land with a geologist. Most of the snow was gone by now, another view presented itself.
The upper house needs to be taken down. Another one will come in its place. We want to preserve some of the tradition by building the new balcony partly with the old material.
We talked with the geologist how to give the upper house a more stable foundation and how to deal with an eventual overflow of water. He showed us ways how to do that and said that there is no significant geological risk in the area. The rifts in the rock here happened millions of years ago, they have stabilized by now. That’s good to know.
