  • Description


    Hi I am building a 3-storey stone house in Far East Gippsland, in the rain forest on top of Mt Murrungowar, amongst some of the biggest trees in the world ,30 ks in land from Cape Conran. You can see the oils rigs in the Bass Strait thru the trees,there's abundant wild life, Waratahs ,eleocarpus ,lyrebirds singing , I also have a run down nursery that needs rebuilding and 2 acres of nice river flat that needs cropping , we will go surfing regularly in summer visit water falls and cook good food, I will love to hear from music players as i don't get many people to play with, I play fiddle, banjo ,flute guitar etc,theres lots of alternative building and energy stuff to do, no hard long days. There is also a paid work in summer on the corn fields close by.

    Building with rocks and hand cut timbers, digging trenches, nothing too intellectual!
