    Description

    UK:
    We are a family of 6 living in a property in the countryside situated one hour south of Santiago (Región Metropolitana). We are living in 4 separated houses and each one of us is busy with his work or other personal occupation during the week. We usually gather together and share lunch during the weekends. Our project is to convert our property into a recreational place. Our property has many gardens, fruit trees, a swimming pool and a small eucalyptus forest. The land has a small slope and we would like to build a place for Picnic and walking/biking trails over there.
    In the summer (November, December, January and February) we need help for the maintenance of the swimming pool and cutting wood for the winter.

    ES:

Nuestro proyecto es convertir nuestra parcela en un lugar de recreación y de paseo familiar, es un amplio terreno con muchos jardines, arboles frutales , piscina y un pequeño bosque de eucalyptus, el terreno tiene una pequeña pendiente y es el lugar apto donde queremos construir un lugar para picnic y senderos para paseos en bicicleta.
