    Hello. Nice to meet me, it's Guillaume.
    I have recently been living with my wife and my daughter in Portugal in escalos de baixo (next to castelo branco).
    We bought about two hectares of land with olive groves, fruit orchards, and plenty of water.
    We started the superadobe site on April 19 exactly, I hired a professional Laurent Libre who is part of the 3000econem association to come and do the training on my land (you can also contact him). We are organizing a participatory workcamp and we are looking for people to complete our team for the construction.
    So work during the week and rest on weekends ... Outdoor shower, pergola dry toilet with kitchen and common living room, electricity, solar panels and generators.
    Breakfast and midday meals are provided on working days and in the evening and on weekends there is always something to eat and breakfast available, but everyone does their own cooking. Also loan of bike, a car available just participation in gasoline.
    Climbing equipment available ...... For accommodation if you have your truck or tent, it's perfect otherwise I have some available ....
    The site is therefore 1 house to be built on approximately 100 square meters. .
    At the same time, we have an artisanal soap business we manufacture and sell in the markets.
    Also producer of olive oil. And a three and a half year old chip that goes to the village school.
    I think I said everything...... If you have any questions don't hesitate. I put you some photos of the beginning of construction and land.
    Very good day.
