We are a family with 2 children (2 years and 4 month) at the begging of the project.
Fred is french Carpenter, specialist in tree house and Amber is Ceramist gardener.
Using permaculture, we want to create a small refuge where people can care people, eating well, learning and experimente art-craft (bioconstruction) and care the earth using biodynamic agriculture.
Contact with wild nature, observing, drawing, cleaning and restoring the place to live with are how we do it.
The land is 1,6 hectares south-est face on terraces, with 2 water mines working all the years. Bigs cork aok on the top, olive trees, orange trees, pear tree, cherry tree and grapes...
Small garden but intensive!
Now we live in a caravan with shed and there is an other caravan for helpers, dry tolet, solar shower and small workshop.
No electricity, but soon. we have a workshop in castelo de vide with washing machine and main energy. We go every 3 day at list.
Your accommodation will be tent or caravan and we will chair the kitchen in the caravan with shed.
Is really basic but is fun!
Now we have start the timber frame and we need some extra help with a bit of experience in construction. Don't need to be expert just handy and confident climbing...
We are doing a round house with reciprocal roof, timber frame construction in chestnut and pin, cork, etc..!
Hope to meet you.
