Lutz Farm

The Lutz farm is a small acreage owned by the Lutz family. The farm consists of large grass- and heather fields that stretch to the German border. The farm has been in use for ages. The oldest part of the farmhouse dates back to the 1500s, although a large part of it has been destroyed by fire. Later, at the end of the 1600s, a part of the house was built using brick instead of clay. Many of the old features in and around the house and barns are kept in their original state, and the building is considered to be of high monumental value.

The main building consists of three parts. The barn, the oldest part of the premise, is made out of wood frames and clay. Next to it is the old house, which has been partly destroyed by fire. The old part of the house is also made out of wood and clay, but the new part of wood and brick. The latest piece of the farm is the current house, entirely made of brick and timber. All the buildings have thatched roofs decorated with Saxon gable signs. Around the building is a small orchard with fruit and nut trees and a small kitchen garden. Behind the fences are large fields. The farm used to grow grain, corn and mustard and kept a few cows and pigs. However, due to the decreasing quality of the soil (because of over-farming over the centuries), the farm has switched to only cattle.

The Lutz farm is the last farm before the German border and one of the last surviving farms in the area. On the German side, the lush fields are replaced by barren plains (Western Wüste), where only heather is able to grow. Because of the low quality of the soil, the Dutch government is planning to turn the plains into a production forest, threatening the last farmers in the area.

The restoration of the Baptistery of Lutheria has begun

January 1, 1868

The much-awaited renovation of the Baptistery at the Green Chapel Church, located in the historic city of Lutheria, has recently begun. This iconic structure, which dates back to the 13th century, is the oldest section of the church and has been in dire need of attention for quite some time now. The walls and ceiling of the Baptistery have developed cracks, which require immediate repair, and the mosaic floor has broken tiles that need to be replaced. Furthermore, some of the windows are showing signs of ageing and require restoration.

Thankfully, no structural issues have been detected that could pose a threat to the building's integrity. However, due to the specialized knowledge required for masonry work and the high historical significance of the structure, the renovation is expected to take approximately three years to complete.

It is worth noting that the Baptistery has undergone several transformations over the centuries. Originally constructed as a chapel between 1210 and 1320, it was later given its current function in the 18th century. The Green Chapel Church, as it is now known, derives its name from this iconic structure. Despite having survived several fires, acts of vandalism, and a period of neglect, the Baptistery remains the most valuable piece of historic architecture in Lutheria. Its restoration will undoubtedly enhance the city's cultural heritage and preserve its historical significance for future generations to come.

August 12, 2023

Hello everyone! Today is a special day because I launched the first version of my new website, Ayrngaer! I spent the last four days working on a renewed style that reflects the artistic and painted style I want to incorporate into my artwork and future videos. Navigation has also become much easier with a new main menu and sticky content menus on each page, making it easier to find the information you need. Currently, I am working on setting up social media platforms on DeviantArt and Instagram, where I will post snippets of my work in progress and finished projects. I can't wait to finally start with the real creation of this projects, instead of all the prep-work I am currently doing. Which is very important ofcourse. But my fingers itch to start writing and creating artwork again!
