We are a young family maintaining an old family-house in the middle of France. The place is full of potential, for sharing, for having space, for art or for just being in nature. We are at the same time trying to use this space and keep the house standing :)

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
3 nice things in our home: The Loire, the last wild big river of france, at 200m from the house, to swim in, check the birds and nature life there. Second, we are into bushcraft, loving to build, cook, experience what we can do and how to live with direct nature. Third, we are both artist, creating living situations as art work, putting imperfection and wu wei
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help for general maintenance, and especially to put new tiles on the roof, but no real skils are really needed, just strong arms ;) we have 2 children running around and we would like to share the care about them when we are working on the house... In the same way, it is nice if there is a roster about cooking or cleaning... We are DIYers, and not perfectionist.
