Vridh Jageshwar Homestay

Situated in dense oak forests near the ancient temple of Vridh Jageshwar, the project is a small two floor homestay unit. As the nearest motorable road is more than a kilometre away, all the building materials were obtained from immediate vicinity of the site. The locally quarried stone with mud mortar is used for the walls which are then finished with mud plaster on the inside. Pine wood from the community forest is used to make the roof and intermediate floor structure.

Experienced craftsmen and masons from nearby villages have followed the vernacular building details like wood/ stone lintels, mud plasters, pataal (Kumaoni slate) floors and door frames carved in tun (Mahogany) wood.
