Cooperation with Joshua Roxendal, Lightfeet Living – Sweden/International
Hi! I am the founder of Light Feet Living. I started this big adventure back in 2011 when I attended a Permaculture Design Course or that is when it really picked up speed. I started gaining a more holistic view of the world and really enjoyed learning about this more sustainable lifestyle. I kept on traveling for a while helping out on different projects that were dedicated to self-sufficiency.
This broad view of the world and the eco-system set the base for my building practices, dealing with our most basic needs; Food, shelter, heating, water and community. My main focus after a while became shelter and heating. After some internships and my own learning experiences, people started getting interested in what I was doing and wanted me to teach courses at their venues.
I have since 2011 started a permaculture project in Sweden, built many stoves and natural structures, taught natural building in Guatemala, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark and Nepal. On top of my experience with earthen materials, I am a trained and certified Timber framer from the Island School of Suilding Arts, B.C, Canada, and also attended a Tinyhouse Building Programme in Swedish University. Now I help people plan and build the structures of their dreams and continue to expand my skills at home in Sweden.
