June Donaldson and Edward Garry live at an altitude of 2,600 metres in Mosoj Llajta, Yotala, 20 minutes from the colonial city of Sucre in Bolivia, South America. Using earth and stones from the land, we have sculpted beautiful buildings which compliment the high desert landscape and incorporate creative and innovative elements of design.

We have designed a high quality hotel in Sucre for guests who want to get off the treadmill of travelling from city to city in South America. At Sky Hacienda you can dictate your own timing and choose how to enjoy your stay, whether it is doing very little or exploring the best that the Andes in Bolivia has to offer.

The pool was covered with tarpaulin to protect against sun and rain.

We hired a cement mixer to supplement our own.

The mix was poured into wheelbarrows to be transported to the pool.....

....and tipped down our makeshift chute to our workers below.

The mix was roughly spread over the reinforcing steel and then levelled out with wooden beams.

The surface was then trowelled out.

Our men worked until 2 am polishing out the drying concrete.

They slept on site and then went home for a well deserved day off.
