Family Offgrid place with Domes and Yurt needs helping hands, Idanha-a-nova,CB, Central Portugal
We are living here sind nearly 3 years now with our 10 year old daughter. The land is 8 ha and only have had a a ruin, nothing else. The last years we buildt up 3 Domes, 1 Yurt and make a house from the ruin. Not all is finished now, the yurt should place on another part of the property, the domes nedds some finishing work, the same with the house.
We are complete offgrid, have our own electricty and water, Composttoilet.
If its interessting i work as a creativ - and have a lot stuff here for shirt/textil printing. Also colors, sewing machines and more stuff. so we can create if you want funny things.
Our place is near a beautifull village, 5 minutes walk away, but you feel and look like in the middle of nowhere.
The village offers a gasstation, pharmacia, little supermarket from old ladys :) and postoffice - needfull things.

We need helping hands with skills in building stonewalls, stonework for ways ec. Also strimming the land (landclearing- we have no jungle and its done every year, but this year it grows like wild, cause we had a lot of rain)
Garden must be cleared, a lot of outside work and every corner :)
The Garden is now more Perma than culture.
Another Composttoilett must be buildt. A grey water system must be implemented
The chicken place needs renovation and maybe some creative things.

A carpenter also would be great cause we need some actions on the Dome what need skills to fix it.
We can offer a little Dome, Outdoor toilett and shower, or a huge dome with kitchen and shower inside - also a yurt is here. We eat plantbased, if you want meat, you must cook for yourself.
