We are a family with 2 children (3 and one years old) 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, dry tolet, solar shower and small workshop.
Now, we have electricity!!! we have a workshop in castelo de vide with washing machine . We go every 3 day at list.
In winter we will have a house near the land with 3 bed room, we can share. And from march- april your accommodation will be tent, tipi or caravan and we will chare the kitchen in the caravan with shed.
Is really basic but is fun!
Now we achieve most of the timber frame "Pagode" and we need some extra help with experience in construction to close the wall ( Workshop preparation for recycling windows and site building with cork outside).
I looking for some help to prepare the windows and wooden wall for the "Pagode" and make some cleaning the land when the weather is good.
For the carpentry work, I'd like some one to stay for the whole duration of putting up the walls, because I will guide them through the work and is very fulfilling to see that fase completed. The preparation is at list 4 week and 4-6 weeks building site so 8-10 weeks en total from january to march.
Also we need help for cleaning and maintaining the land ( streamer and shainsaw).
Feel free to contact.
Hope to meet you.
