    My partner (Peter,CH, 53) and I (Emanuela, italy, 49) on july 2019 become owner of a cousy stone house 150 years old!
    The house is in Piedemont (North Italy) very close to Alps Mountain and the border with Swiss.

    At the moment (September 2019) we have an enterprise to do the Main work in the house. We expect to move in the house in April 2020.
    There will be many things to do in the house and in the garden: move and build furniture, plastering, cleaning... To do a Project and build the garden ....
    Any manual and artistic skills are really appreciate! 😁.

    I have been workawayer the last 5 years (since february 2014). I travelling in Greece, Turkey, Italy, Sapin. It has been, for me, a super great esperience.
    I had no comfort but i could ecperience freedom, my fear and my courage, my sickness and my strongness. I lernt about me and others. I lernt many manual things. I have seen beautiful places, I met beautiful people.

    After this nice experience, it has been spontain to decide to open and share our piace with other people. Peter is also very happy to have workawayers.

    We wish you can have your wanderful life experience, too 😄.
