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.

Work starts on the pool wall.  It will provide shelter from the prevailing wind and much needed shade from the fierce high altitude sun.  

Windows are installed to keep the weight down on the terrace below - adobe is very heavy!  The frames will be filled with coloured glass.

Ed welds steel posts and supports in place. 

Wooden eucalyptus tree beams are laid across the span of the roof.

Carmelo inspects the bolts to make sure none are missing.
