Modern construction possibilities

It is now possible to build a nearly zero-energy house that is entirely of natural and environmentally friendly materials. There is no need to fear that the lifespan of the house would be in any way shorter compared to the alternatives.

We discuss in more detail clay, lime, natural fibres, and other materials.

Renovation of an old building

We encourage people to restore the dignity of old buildings and give them a new life. This requires careful consideration and the use of suitable materials.

We discuss in more detail the different types of buildings, the most common types of damages, renovation, and maintenance.


Our members have long experience in the field of ecological construction. We improve ourselves constantly and take part in cooperation projects both in Estonia and elsewhere in the world. We are able to provide knowledge and help to customers, self-builders, schools, architects, developers, and builders.

Mooste Manor and our Competence Center

The origins of the Mooste Manor can be traced back to the 16th century. At the beginning of the 20th century, Eduard von Nolcken turned the Mooste Manor into one of the most beautiful manor complexes in Southern Estonia. Today, the Mooste Manor ensemble is one of the best-preserved manor complexes in Estonia and in addition to the beautiful main building, the manor also has a grandiose outbuilding complex.

Our Competence Center is located in an old stable-carriage house, the renovation of which saw us use as many natural building and finishing materials as possible.
