Hello this is Monti. I work for a bank in Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka. My home town is a small village located about 75km (2.5Hrs) away from Colombo. At my village my family has 5 acres of land with a very small derelict house. The house remains as its original character surrounded by trees that have not been cut or disturbed for 20 years. Also the land has never been used in any commercial aspect such as farming or industrial work.
Help with Eco project
During your stay at our village you will experience authentic non touristy village life. All the village people are respectful and innocent towards visitors. Most of my international friends who have stayed at my village in the past have been invited to enjoy food, fruits and local tea with our neighbours. Near by you are able to visit one of the main rivers, the longest hanging bridge in Sri Lanka, waterfalls and temples. Also within 1.5 hours travel you can visit an elephant orphanage, white water rafting and tea estates.
After the project is complete as a big thank you for your help we will be happy to offer you and your family members free stay at the cottage any time you wish to return to Sri Lanka during your lifetime.
I want to renovate our house and land into an eco friendly cottage / summer house / holiday bungalow / hideout place (peaceful place for meditation ect..) . I am looking for some help from an Architect, Designer, construction professional or anyone interesting in this kind of project. The special aim is to renovate the house and land without cutting any trees or changing the natural landscape.
As my family only lives 5.5km away from the land my parents will be able to host you at our house and provide accommodation and meals. Only knowledge and manual labour if available is expected from the visitor to help with this project. Local assistant workers can be provided at your request.
