  • Description

    Description

    Our home is a place where we wish to build a few projects. We are mountain people, artists, wishing to sail the seas, with little experience but big dreams. We have a humble country life, with three dogs and one cat, many rooms and a big garden, our home is cozy, but because of the large size it can get wild pretty soon.
    Our main project is building a catamaran. We direct all our efforts into this, but sometimes life catches up and after daily routines, time is not enough. We wish to change our lives, we wish to become travelers and we need a mobile home, to wander... We like to work while having fun, we try to make work intro play, so we need creative, fun to be around people, no experience needed ...just the sincere wish to be apart to an interesting experience!
    Our garden and house is constant work, everyday we find new things that need our attention, and sometimes what we build today the dogs chew at night :) so we have fun! We love trekking with our dogs in the local forests, looking for mushrooms and bathe in the lakes... basically we prefer wildlife and nature over city life, without giving up the comfort!

    P.S. We rarely consume meat and alcohol, and our place is smoker friendly!

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    During your stay with us you will have the opportunity to learn/improve or even share some carpentry skills, we also work with resin and fiberglass. Other skills like cooking or gardening I think are very cultural so I am sure it will always be very interesting feedback.
    We love to engage in philosophical topics, and learn how others think and feel.
    Also we are big fans of trekking in the wild virgin forests from our area... we could take you to our favorites places. We live in a forested areas in Romania, near a big natural reservations, we have mountains and lakes and we even have nearby one of Europe's most beautiful waterfalls :)

    Help

    This is our first work away project, and we hope to create a opportunity for people that are interested in building a boat and do some gardening, roam the wilds of the area, and share a good time.
    We offer free food and accommodation in private room with separate access to common area, toilet with shower/bath, and kitchen.
    We expect interest and engagement in our projects and our lives!
    5 hours/day of easy to moderate workload that involves: building with wood and resin in our boat project, gardening, cooking for meals, cleaning, house maintenance, shopping, and some pet care if we are not around. We really appreciate artistic, creative and motivated people, self initiative and why not some tidiness :)
    1 - 4 persons maximum
