    *** Updated ***

    Hi lovely people,

    We are looking for a single person or couple who would like to spend the spring/summer here on our beautiful place in algarve and work a few hours per week at our wooden house. You should have some skills and experiences in building with wood, you should also able to work on your own as we are not often on the land ( we stay 10km away with our kids )
    Of course we have a lot of tools which you can use.

    This place is more for persons who like to be absolutely in the nature, its quiet and calm here. And everything is very simple. The is an outdoor shower with warm water, and outdoor kitchen, pizza oven, compost toilets. Until the wooden house is finished its possible to stay in our cosy campervan, it has a 1,40x2 bed and enough space for a couple or even for a family with 1 or 2 kids ( depends on how much space you need )

    We have a solarsystem, so there is electricity for the wifi, fridge and things like this, we also have a washing machine. No mobile phone signal!

    We ask for 15-20 hours work per week. As we are not there and won´t cook every day, its okay if its less than 20, lets talk about that. Of course there will be groceries and we also deliver fresh veggies and fruits for you. We are vegans and the place is in a vegan community, so we ask not to bring animal products to the land and our home.

    As this house is a longer and bigger project we prefer someone who wants to stay longer than 1 month.

    You need a car.
