    Beschreibung

    So... I own a countryside property (3.5 ha of land + 7 ha of forests) in the middle of a forest (1.7 km from a road and 1.5 km from the nearest neighbour).I want to turn this property in a place deserving to be called "home". I design and build my own buildings in different techniques (so far a cottage of rammed earth, a sauna of cordwood, a storage house of sea-container and a greenhouse of plastic). I also clear the land from bushes and the trash left behind in some places by the previous owners. I also have a patch of land with high-bush blueberries that need some 180-turnaround in order for them to thrive.

    The things that I need help with this season are the following...
    -Finishing up the garage/workshop- plastering the walls with clay, plastering the rocket stove, laying planks on the upper side of the ceiling and some minor jobs (making work bench, installing a sink etc.)
    -Tearing down the old house, removing nails from the material, sorting and stacking the materials
    -Building a small cottage out of the materials from the old house + simple wood stove (the project is not completely thought through but the main premise is to recycle as much as possible and buy as little as absolutely necessary)
    -Finishing up the outside toilet
    -Clearing the yard from bushes
    -Cutting fire wood and stacking it
    -Disassembling an old, rundown caravan

    Then there are also long term work...
    -Coming up with an idea for a cash crop
    -Designing a permaculture garden (space has been set aside)

    NB!!!

    You will learn how to build with odd materials. Other skills and mindsets will come along with the work.
    I don't represent Latvian cultural heritage but I'm not void of it either. There are occasional local culture events that I attend so you will be welcome to join me.
    My plot of land is still raw- there are ideas to be implemented, experiments to be done and creativity to be welcome.
    I would like you to bring a new point of view on concepts I have known for a long time.

    Unterkunft

    There is sauna for you to live in. It has a table, chairs, place on the floor for mattress to sleep on and a toilet outside. The door can be locked if the need be. If it's cold, you are welcome to get the fireplace going that provides more than enough heat.
    You will have to take care of your own meals as I usually am quite busy and don't have time to prepare common meals. Gas stove is available.
