Shortly after Johan & Rose bought the land, they started several constructions and a reforestation process. 

Adaptions to pre-existing buildings were made. The former workers-housing was enlarged to accommodate future students of the educational centre, a library and meditation hall were build, and the grain-storage became a green-house with a dining area beneath. The old classroom was divided into carpentries and other workspaces, a second level was added becoming the family´s home and Johan´s office. With the construction of the tower, Tiba obtained its characteristic appearance that prevails till today.
