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 volunteer Sky helped Ed start the porch structure. 

We used eucalyptus beams that were embedded into our thick adobe walls.
Ed installed the steel panels that would provide shade and keep the rain off.
Here is a view looking up from the top of the steps along the roof.
Ed applied a couple of coats of white paint to reflect the intense sun off the steel roof.
The walls were lime rendered and lime washed.   Our desire to create a simple porch area with clean lines had been achieved.   And we had our front door installed at last.
