  • Description


    We are a couple (one Belgian, one American) seeking enthusiastic volunteers to join us in restoring a historic house located in the picturesque village of Maillen, Belgium. This charming property, which we inherited from my late father-in-law, holds significant sentimental value to our family. However, it is in need of some updates and restoration to bring it back to its former glory.
