Our objective is to complete our renovations to the main building, which will make it compliant with safety regulations and provide access to persons with disabilities.
We are working on improvements to emergency exits and our safety equipment (fire doors, extinguishers etc). We are also adapting rooms to increase the capacity and the quality of our accomodation, enlarging room windows and refurbishing.
3 year Retreat Houses
One of our main new projects is the renovation of the 3 year retreat houses, a charming and beautiful cluster of old French country houses. We are working on the restoration and improvement of these houses, where we will enlarge the windows to enhance the beautiful natural light and offer more open views of the sky and surrounding nature.
We plan to set up a professional wood workshop to enable us to do this work ourselves with the help of skilled professional carpenters and experienced joiners.
Landscaping and Gardening
We would love to establish our garden in a way that it becomes maintenance free, where the types of plants we include will naturally deter the growth of weeds
We have also recently purchased a digger for levelling grounds and preparing pits ahead of installing a water filtering system.
Rebuilding of a ruin that neighbours Gomde House
The mas (main house) though large has limits for our longer term aspirations, and we wish to rebuild a ruin that directly neighbours the main house. We are hoping to create a larger temple, a library, dining room, and housing for our teachers and Lamas, and our permanent residents.
