  • Description

    Description

    Hey!
    We are friends, partners, associates, supporters, Igor and Irina. We are from Moscow.
    Having visited 14 countries together in the three years before the pandemic, we decided to build a home for people like us. A house where it will be comfortable to live, work, relax. A house with good wi-fi, a well-equipped place for productive work, a place with nature vibes. So we found this place in the small village Khomuli, 8 km from the Kutaisi city, near the Sataplia nature reserve.

    Here we build a home and community for digital nomads, travelers, freelancers, remote workers, for everyone who works using the Internet and for all those who are tired of the city's noise and want to live comfortably in a rural life among the nature.

    We are overhauling the house.
    We have almost finished the construction of the first floor, where a coworking space, a dining room, a kitchen, a lounge area, a quiet space, two scype rooms, a toilet, a utility area are located.
    There is still some final work left.
    We hope that you will help us!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a small village among cypresses. All our neighbors are Georgian families. You can fully immerse in Georgian rural life while taking a break from the city. We can teach Russian to anyone interested. We are also interested in the practice of English language.
    Igor has been working as a landscape designer for 12 years. He has a big experience in the construction. If you are interested in gaining experience in a construction, you are welcome. We will teach what we know.

    First of all, we need helpers in the construction.

    Works:
    - removal of old paint and plaster;
    - finishing works: plaster, putty, wall painting;
    - laying tiles;
    - plumbing installation;
    - engineering communications (electricity, sewerage, water supply, ventilation, heating);
    - restoration of old windows, doors, chairs, tables;
    - work with drywall (ceiling, interior walls);
    - finishing of the facades of the house (insulation, plastering, finishing of external walls).

    It will be an advantage if you have some experience in the listed works.

    We also need to refine the land plot.
    - alignment of the land plot;
    - fence renewal;
    - make retaining walls;
    - construction of a barbecue area.

    If you understand at least one of these sectors, it will be excellent. If not, we will teach you everything we know.
    As you can see, there is a lot of work and we will be very glad to see you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    From us to the Kutaisi city you can get in 20 minutes on a minibus that goes 1 times an hour.
    The Imereti region is rich of interesting natural places. Next to us there is the Sataplia nature reserve, which is famous for its many caves and various hiking trails. Tens of kilometers away there are waterfalls, mountain rivers, canyons. The location of Imereti is also very beneficial. On weekends, you can go to Tbilisi (3.5 hours drive) or Batumi (2.5 hours).

    We love to spend evenings at board games, bonfires.
    On weekends, we go hiking in our surroundings.

    We would like to see responsible, industrious, open people. If you are ready to give us 4-5 full hours of your life a day, welcome.
