  • Help


    We need someone who has same experience in construction to help us with my workshop's roof : thermal insulation and replacing the slates. I am also currently reorganising our garden to exhibit my sculpturs. So any ideas will be welcome !! We are also planning to build in the garden, a wooden cabin with straw insulation and a vegetal roof. We have activities outside our home so, we might not be here for every meals. So we need someone independent who can cook him/her self meals and does a minimum around the house.
