My family is me (Martin 30) My girlfriend (Veronica 31) and her son. I am a natural builder and she is a woman of my heart. We are building our dream house and we would be happy for any help. We love nature and way how to improve our way of life, happiness, and inner growth is very important for us. We also like to do creative things like a different types of art and so on.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
You can learn about different techniques of traditional/modern building. Like work with wood, clay, straw, stone, sheep wool, and other materials. I have some experience with permaculture design and natural building so I can tell you everything I know. We can also show you some interesting natural buildings around. For example, house-made from moon wood and traditional wooden roof. The place is located in the middle of a natural reservation so its plenty of nature around. Mainly large forests and lakes. Its located 700m above sea level.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for volunteers to help us with the building of our new home. We are building a small house in a small village in the middle of the hilly countryside. We want to use permaculture principles and natural materials to build the house. Also, we want to keep the traditional old design of the region. We already had built walls and roof construction. Now it's gonna be a journey of sheep wool insulation of floor, roof, and walls. Then inner walls and clay plaster. In the interior, we want to be playful and creative with mosaics and wooden furniture. Other works should be wooden floor and traditional oven and fireplace.
This host offers a language exchange
I would like to learn spanish and russian language.
You can stay in a tepe tent near the forest or we can provide a near hall with plenty of space. Also, it's possible to sleep in the attic of the house.
As I said our place is mainly about the nature around. You can get a bike or just be part of our family program in your free time. Also, we have some unique architecture like this church .
To get to our place it's not a problem you will get a train for two hours from Prague and then we can pick you up ;-)
