    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.
