  • Description


    I am building a small Ecohouse in Bristol using innovative and experimental techniques. I am using Passivehouse principles and the building is almost entirely constructed in wood and eco friendly materials.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will learn lots of different practical skills especially woodworking skills and how to use a wide variety of tools. You would learn a lot about Ecohouse building. You would also have plenty of time off to explore local sights and I can help facilitate this by showing you around and doing day trips from Bristol.

    I am after someone or a couple who have good practical skills who want to learn about ecobuilding and do practical tasks on my project in a lovely quiet spot in Bristol. They don’t need any particular previous experience and I will provide a lot of teaching and supervision. I can provide accommodation and I can help you travel and explore Bristol and the surrounding area. I would also be able to help you learn or improve your English if you want to do this. I also have a flat in London and you may be able to stay there at some point during your stay to explore London

  • Languages spoken

    French: Intermediate

  • Accommodation


    I can provide accommodation in a large comfortable campervan which you would have to yourself. I will provide meals and food for the 2-3 days in the week when we will be working on the project. On the days off in between there will be some food available in the camper van and I will try to provide some meals but I won’t be available to cook all the meals on those days.
