  • Description


    my name is Barbara and im looking for help. I live close to Montevideo in a beautiful part of Uruguay next to a river (2 minutes walk) and not far from the beach (15 minutes walk). I live together with my 8 years old son sahel in a House which ive builded myself with help of some volunteers. At the moment (from the 25 September of to the 25 Oktober) there is another project ongoing on my property which is a wooden cabin. The main structure is done but now i could recieve someone with building skills or a sanitary or electrical technician to do things like putting plywood on the walls, painting doing the wather instalation or the elecrtrical instalation and other little things. I like to eat healthy and provide three meals a day. The territory i live in is famous for artist residents and there are many projects going on like Music and Art Workshops. Every Saturday there is a Circle of drummers playing candombe around a fire. If youre keen to help with building projects and want to know about peoples life here please feel free to contact me and we can have a chat.
    please contact me on whatsapp if you have it.
    See you hopefully soon Barbara
