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.

Our perimeter wall is finally finished - over a kilometre long and built almost single-handedly over a 2-year period by Cyprian.
We used posts and barbed wire for the sloped part of our land, reinforced with thorn branches to keep animals out.
Ed installs blue glass in the pool wall.
Volunteers Fabio and Vikki continue working on the mosaic in the jacuzzi.
The large, heavy solid wood door to the principal bedroom arrives.....
...and is carefully installed in the arched opening.
And our outbuildings are finally ready to use - Ed's workshop, a bedroom and bathroom, a laundry room and storage room.
