Also i will show you the city (when i have time) but for shure i will recommend places, restaurants and places to enjoy the city. I am also a good teacher in construction: wood, metal, painting, tails, etc.

    Hello! I am restoring an old house, in the cerro monjas of Valparaiso. I am seeking people who want to bio build: Mud, straw, recycled construction demolition materials like wood, adobe. I am looking for cheerful, positive and eager to learn people. I have lots of tools and am a local of Valparaiso that will guide you in this beautiful city. I speak French, English, Italian and I love teaching Spanish.

    To restore a house means, to paint, to put plaster, to clean, to carry big stuff, to break the mud(recicled) to put it again into the walls.

    I'm searching for serius people that the first day look the project and if they say they are interested continue as a trade for lodgment and food.

    Is important you to notice that you will stay in a house that requiere as all houses maintenance (kitchen, toilets and common spaces).


    Hola! me encuentro restaurando una casa en el cerro monjas de Valparaíso. Busco gente que quiera construir con bioconstrucción: Barro, paja, materiales reciclados de construcciones en demolición. Busco gente alegre, positiva y con ganas de aprender. Tengo muchas herramientas y soy un local de Valparaíso que podrá guiarlos en esta hermosa ciudad. Hablo francés, Inglés, Italiano y me encanta enseñar castellano

    Restaurar una casa significa pintar, poner yeso, llevar cosas pesadas, romper barro reciclado, ponerlo nuevamente en las paredes antiguas.

    Busco gente seria que el primer día vea el proyecto y si le interesa comience a trabajar por un tiempo determinado.

    Es importante que sepan que el proyecto se mantiene y continúa gracias a una casa en la cual ustedes se quedarán. En esta casa yo arriendo habitaciones y como todas las casas necesita mantenimiento. Para eso necesito ayuda para mantener limpia la cocina, baños, áreas comunes.
