We're Suso and Myriam, a couple in our thirties with 2 dogs, 3 cats, 6 chicken and a turtle that just bought a beautiful big XIX century house.
We speak Spanish and English and Myri speaks as well Italian (she was born in Naples) and Suso can hold a conversation in Japanese because he spent long time cycling in Japan.
Our goal is to rescue this piece of history from decay and make it our home in the way. We plan doing as much as possible ourselves using materials and methods from the period to accomplish our goal.
Spring 2022 update, Second level of the retention wall completed. The first 3 metres of the bottom wall already completed only 17 more to go. Hopefully during June we can build other 3metres and mid summer we can start rebuilding the wall and the section of the roof that collapsed winter 2019. lots of digging and stone work In June and July.

If you're interested in traditional construction methods and hand made stuff we'll love to learn from you and we're happy to teach you. All good ideas that fit the philosophy of the project are welcome. Also you can experience life in the countryside of Asturias in a wooded area close to the sea and mayor tourist attractions you can visit on your spare time.
Dieses Projekt schließt möglicherweise den Umgang mit Kindern ein. Mehr Informationen findest du in unseren Verhaltensregeln und Tipps hier.
Help us rebuild a 1879 house in north Spain (just 10 minutes by car from the beach ) and make it a passive sustainable home. We don't need any special skill and if you're willing to learn about carpentry and masonry from a professional Suso will love to teach you from the very basic all the way to advance stone cutting and Japanese timber framing.
This is a construction site, the house is 140 years old and everything needs attention. Half of it needs rebuilding so at times the work is tough and dirty.
We're at a stage where we finished the consolidation and already started demolition and rebuilding.
Not all is heavy lifting and cement mixing Myri is very passionate about gardening cooking so if you fancy to help us growing vegetables, taking care of the animals and making pizza you'll find a very warm welcome.
Again please bring suitable footwear, it gets muddy and slippery.
We have a guests room in the house, with two bed and a bank beds and a small office downstairs where we can put an extra double bed. Workawayers are expected to share the room but We'll do our best for you to be comfortable and let you know with whom are you going to share and only exceptionally there will be more than two volunteers sleeping in one room. Food will be provided by us and cooking as well unless any workawayer likes to take over that task or any other to keep us working.
Usually the day starts at 9am with breakfast 9:30 house chores and at 10 am we start working until lunch around 2pm. We plan our day not to need help after lunch or during the weekends so you can rest or explore.
The bus used to stop just in front of the house before COVID 19 but now to go to Villaviciosa or to Gijón the nearest stop is 3km away. Beaches are quite close too (8 Km to playa España) and the surrounding are perfect for hiking and cycling. The camino de Santiago if pretty close too so if you're hiking to Santiago don't have to divert that much or you can start the trail from home.
Once or twice a year a workayer will gost us after confirming that is going to stay with us. We don't mind if you cancel your stay but if your travel plans changes let us know ASAP.

Not the best internet access but at least is unlimited. Electricity is a bit unreliable on cloudy days right now but we hope to improve our battery bank on 2022. So if your device is power hungry (more than 50W) most likely you can only charge /use during day time, and that's a limited resource in winter.
