... and how did we end up here in the forest?
We are Basti and Jordis and we met in Asturias at a surf and climbing camp. In the evenings around the campfire, we quickly made plans. At that time, Jordis was looking for a place for her Yoga and Acroyoga classes in Cologne. Basti is a civil engineer, has lived in Cologne for a long time and wanted to help. In the madness of the first Coronalockdown, the hall in Cologne turned into a retreat center in the Bergisches Land. It couldn't have come at a better time.
Projekt Brunnenhaus – der Umbau
Of course, such an old house always means a lot of work. We decided to renovate and modernize the well house ourselves. Of course, this is was only possible with the support of numerous helpers to whom we would like to express our sincere thanks. We have learned a lot (and are still learning), certainly not everything is perfect, but there is love and passion in the whole house.
I am Basti. Civil engineer, carpenter and economist from Berlin.
Now that I've been dabbling in real estate for a few years and started my own engineering firm, I wondered how I could get out of my suit once in a while. I am Basti. Civil engineer, carpenter and economist from Berlin.
So when Jordis wanted to open a retreat center, I said to myself - why not?
I'm Jordis. Former special education teacher and linguist, language learner, van traveler, dog lover, constant humming and ukulele playing life enthusiast who went from Yoga teacher to hostel mom and Yoga retreat owner overnight.
Before I decided to move into an old house in the middle of the forest, I was able to make numerous contacts around the world, which are now benefiting us. With our Brunnenhaus project I can finally bring together all my different passions and skills.
We are always happy to receive constructive feedback and new ideas.
