Living Your House

Ever since I watched the first Pippi Longstocking movie I knew that I loved a house that is not normal.

She lives in a villa that in English is called ‘Villa Villekulla’, not just an awesome house on the outside, but just as fresh and authentic on the inside.

The furniture is unique, all with wonderfull playfull but natural -lovingly made – details, all made for actual using.
And the way that Pippi makes use of the house was great too; sliding down bannisters, climbing the roof, horse on the porch, monkey as companion.

Scotlands First Earthship

Not only Scotland’s first, but the first to be built in the UK, the construction of Earthship Fife Visitor Centre was begun in July 2002 during an intensive 8 day building programme with American Earthship pioneer Michael Reynolds and 11 trainees from across Scotland and England. From July 2002 to 2004 more than 200 volunteers completed the Earthship during weekends and work experience days.

Overlooking Kinghorn Loch, this centre shares a site with Craigencalt Ecology Centre and is built back into the hillside. Although the building is being used as a demonstration, full housing standards were applied when going through the planning process, and Sustainable Communities Initiatives are running an on-going monitoring process to assess an Earthship’s performance in Scotland’s climate.

Unfortunately the building itself was closed on the only day I could visit, but there was plenty of activity in the grounds and gardens, as well as bright ideas on recycling – a subject dear to my heart!
