    Description

    Update 20 January 2019.

    We are three people and we settled in december 2015 into an old house situated in one of the 24 most beautiful villages in Wallonia. After having restored the house and divided it in three appartements we think about other works to do.

    We're from the same family: Christiane, Julien and Damien (plus his two girls), trying to live in simple and sustainable way, looking to be more self sufficiency. We're open minded and we love to have new experience because we think that we all learn from each other. And sharing moments together may be an occasion to learn about other cultures and hobbies. We make some sports like: running, biking, kung-fu, hiking ... and have some interest for reading, cooking, photography and artistic creations.

    We dream about lot of projects for future; organic micro-farm with animals, small grocery, treehouse accommodation. It will take time but we are not in a hurry.

    There are various works at home and in the farming garden.
    The type of help needed at the house:

    - For gardening:

    - Clean up the garden
    - Mowing the lawns
    - Cut trees, saw wood and stock it
    - Planting hedges
    - Help with our bees
    (About machines that can be dangerous, I usually use the brushcutter, hedge trimmer and chainsaw by myself)

    - For building :

    - Build a summer kitchen
    - Build a solar shower
    - Build a chicken coop
    - Finish some works in the house (painting, build light wall, ... )
    - Build a small temporary wooden greenhouse
    - Build a shelter to store firewood


    ---- Important ----

    Please notice that we don't start all works at same time, there's works for two or three years, so if you have interest in a particular project, please ask where we are on the achievement or when he starts. Remember that works outside depend from weather, and some of them are better in spring or summer.
