  • Description


    I am living alone in a pretty house in front of the forest. Sometimes I also have my two children's who are teenagers 12 and 14 years old. A girl, Lucie, and a boy, Denis.
    It would be good for them to practice English with a workawayer.

    Un Français avec une formation initiale menuiserie ou charpente ce serait super pour moi car j'ai besoin d'une pergola et un abri pour les vélos!

    A Frenchman with initial carpentry or carpentry training would be great for me because I need a pergola and a shelter for bikes!

    I am about to finish my home, Wich was an old one, and looks now well. I do my best to use ecologic products and enter in the negawat logic to spare energy. I have easy work to do, like painting a door, or plant some cloud in the wood. But not so much energy because I just finish a big chimiothérapy, successful fortunately!!

    I practice often yoga and meditation.

    I also enjoy gardening, and have full of projects for this year and the next one, to produce my own fruits and some vegetables.

    It looks like permaculture, joy and happiness. Sometimes need help to keep the way, and for the pleasure to meet people's sparing my ideas, air having new one's!

    Le projet est de faire un abri pour les vélos, et une pergola sur la terrasse. Je cherche quelqu'un d'autonome qui sache faire ce travail sans mon aide.

    The project is to make a shelter for bikes, and a pergola on the terrace. I'm looking for someone independent who knows how to do this job without my help.
    have to paint some doors, and a little wall, to cut some very little trees. It is easy but takes now too many time and energy for me, cause, I just finish a big chimiothérapy.
    It would be great for my children's to speak English during the meals.
    You will have your own room and bathroom, brand clean and pretty. Just the door and a wall to paint!!
