  • 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 October 2019 to 15 of December 2019 and then from 3 of Feruary to 30 of April 2020 there are two projects on going on my property:

    - the main project at the moment is building two bedrooms, in form of doms. There is already help of two carpenters who build them up. I could also recieve someone else who helps me with things in the house like cooking and keeping the house tidy.

    - another project is a wooden cabin on my property, i need help with finishing the bathroom. The floor is done and the pipes are there but theinstallation of shower and toilet needs to be done. If there is anyone who has done that before please contact me.

    I like to eat healthy and provide three meals a day. ive got a wooden cabin on my property for two people and some space in my house. Also there is a lot of space to sleep in tents ( Nature is beautiful and the weather is great here).
    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.
    See you hopefully soon Barbara
