From Ehrlerfarm to Storkyard

After a quite long period of planning in 2013 we decided to pursue the goal of building room for housing and community maintaining the special ambience. We have been convinced that this can be achieved in a gentle way, keeping the existing structures and materials, partly by reconstruction of building parts.


The solution was the complete gutting of the barns. It allowed the mounting of solid foundation and baseplates. Structural parts from wood or steel have been taken apart and became refurbished and reinstalled.

The assembly of the stork's nest was one more highlight. After all the stork is our distinctive mark. Even the nest is not taken for brood care this year a few of these birds had a stop-over and clattered.
