Proud of our House of Plenty!

Since this week the House of Plenty has got a door that can actually be locked and this week we have constructed to floor! On the 14th of March we already showed the result so far to our interested fellow builders and assistants.

We are proud of our achievements so far!

Finishing touch

It will still take a few weeks to put the finishing touches to it, but now its already actually a house! The windows are built in, we are able to get on the roof and the floor is almost finished. And all this thanks to quite a large bunch of people, who helped us in every way to construct the building from scratch.

Sneak preview
Thursday March 14 we put them in the centre of the attention and we already presented them the house. A sort-of sneak preview.

People who helped us from the very beginning of the project were there, but also people who just ‘discovered’ the house and lended a helping hand in the construction the last couple of weeks.

We all took a little sightseeing tour and everyone had the opportunity to tell about their own contribution to the House of Plenty and their motives to support our project.

Students
The students of the HAN, Janise, Helena, Philipp and Marjolein, gave our guests a warm welcome. The guests received a name tag to put on their coat, a delicious rosé spoom and they could write something on the inspiration wall. In the meantime the students were also filming and taking pictures.

A great day
After a short tour in, around and on top of the house Leon Gommers of Gargantua and Anna van Wezel of event organizer and caterer “Feestjes met”
organized a get-together with delicious snacks.

We had a great time! Check out the photos of the festive day below.

Wat blijft, is de herinnering

We kunnen het terrein van het Huis van Overvloed weer schoon en in oude staat teruggeven aan de natuur en de gemeente Nijmegen. Het Terras van Overvloed is gesloopt en het puin, dat voor de fundering voor het Huis van Overvloed gebruikt is, is weggehaald. Avontuur Ons avontuur, dat het Huis van Overvloed heette, is voorbij en afgerond. Alles wat nog opgeslagen stond op het terrein is afgevoerd. We leveren deze mooie plek aan het meertje achter de Bemmelse Dijk bij Lent op, zoals we het hebben aangetroffen. Voetstappen Zo zouden we met alles in de wereld moeten omgaan: "Leave your footprints, take only pictures." Onze voetstappen spoelen in dit geval bij de eerste overstroming wel weg, zodra het overloopgebied klaar is voor het project "Ruimte voor de Rivier". Maar de foto’s en onze ervaring blijven. Wat blijft, is de herinnering.   … [Lees verder...]
