  • Description

    Description

    We speak bad English but we can improve by practicing! We prefer people who also speak Portuguese or Italian, to avoid difficult communication or misunderstandings. We have an eco-sustainable low cost construction project in a very interesting small location. Surrounded by greenery, our camper is supporting in the ground but we live in a house two kilometers away. We need strong and willing arms, the house is designed elevated, made of wood, glass and raw earth.
    A few kilometers from Mafra, Sintra and Ericeira, with enchanted places nearby. We have two children aged 5 and 2 years and a very sweet little dog, pleasure in eating healthy.

    The work we want to do is brilliant, but alone it is longer and we want to finish before seasons rain come! It's about helping Daniel, who works as a carpenter and designed the house, for this reason it is good to be familiar with wooden beams and strength to move glass without breaking them!
