    Update: Help needed with carpentry works, masonry and sustainable constructions such as a water reuse system, wood oven, dry toilet...

    My name is Mar. Sometimes my sons are at home (21 and 18) but you will probably just meet me because they have theirs owns projects. I am rehabilitating a small house with a garden, orchard, two dogs and two cats, near Manresa, in the province of Barcelona. We live near parks, on the outskirts of the city in a rustic setting. Barcelona is 60 minutes by car and the mountain of Montserrat 30 minutes. One hour from the Pyrenees, one hour from Girona, one hour from Lleida and one hour from the beach.

    Please, write "Hola Mar" as a subject when you request to stay with me to be sure you have read my profile. I don't answer no personalized messages.


    Actualización: se necesita ayuda con labores de casa, de jardín y de cuidado de dos perros. Se valorará muy positivamente conocimientos de carpintería, albañilería y construcciones sostenibles como sistema de reutilización de aguas, horno de leña, WC seco...

    Somos una familia de tres, pero probablemente sólo me conoceréis a mi, Mar, la madre. Mis hijos de 21 y 18 corren poco por casa durante el curso académico. Estoy rehabilitando una pequeña casa con jardín, huerto, dos perros y dos gatos, cerca de Manresa, en la província de Barcelona. Vivimos cerca de parques, a las afueras de la ciudad en un entorno rústico. Barcelona está a 60 minutos en coche y la montaña de Montserrat a 30 minutos. A una hora de los Pirineos, a una hora de Girona, a una hora de Lleida y a una hora de la playa.

    Por favor escribid "Hola Mar" como tema del mensaje de solicitud de estancia para saber que os habéis leído mi perfil. No contesto mensajes no personalizados.

    Uno de mis perros es joven y juega con demasiada intensidad, a veces. Los gatos no son compatibles con mi perro porqué los persigue sin descanso.
