    Description

    Hi! I live in a village in the mountains of o Courel, in Lugo (Galicia). Totally surrounded by nature. I am restoring two little houses for a rural project in which tasks will be done to improve the consciousness of society around its environment, its life, its consumption ... etc. The houses are made of stone and wood, and traditional techniques and materials are used for their restoration. I also have orchards and chestnut trees. I do daily things like tending the fields, making firewood, etc. But mainly right now I'm focused on the houses, and that would be what I need the most help with.
    I live in a house in the same village, which has a guest room. In the town we are only ten people living all year. It is an environment where wolves, bears, roe deer, martens, wild cats, etc. live
    .

    Hola! Vivo en una aldea an las montañas de o Courel, en Lugo (Galicia). Totalmente rodeado de naturaleza. Estoy restaurado dos casitas para un proyecto rural en el que se trabajará por mejorar la consciencia de la sociedad en torno a su medio, su vida, su consumo..etc. Las casas son de piedra y madera, y se utilizan técnicas tradicionales y materiales para su restauración. También tengo huertas y castañal. Hago cosas de diario como atender el campo , hacer leña etc. Pero principalmente ahora mismo estoy centrado en las casas, y sería para lo que más ayuda necesito.
    Vivo en una casa en la misma aldea, que tiene habitación de invitados. En el pueblo solo somos diez personas viviendo todo el año. Se trata de un entorno donde habitan lobos, osos , corzos, martas , gatos monteses etc.

    What else ...

    In the town there are many hiking trails, two ravines for canyoning. There are many places of high natural value in the mountains. I live simply and I like being surrounded by nature and a pleasant environment, and at the same time interact with it.
