  • Description


    Updated June 26.

    I'm an American now living in Cabanes, Spain. I have a very special property near the coast, about an hour North of Valencia requiring two different sets of skills:

    All-around handyman who can assist with small building projects including:

    1. Finishing a water fountain and small pool
    2.Putting in a concrete floor for a pool to be used to raise fish
    3. Building a circular foundation for a yurt using concrete blocks
    4. Install a shower/sauna in 4 meter high wine barrel

    A garden person to plant a large vegetable garden, an herb garden, and a cactus garden

    The property is in a beautiful setting overlooking the coast. Wonderful, sandy, beaches are 15 minutes away. The village of Cabanes is 10 minutes away and Castellon is 30 minutes away. Can provide a vehicle for short trips.

    For accommodation you will have your own private yurt with a compost toilet, solar powered electricity, small kitchen, and internet. If you have a camper van that works also.

    Any length of time is ok. In addition to housing in a yurt, willing to pay for some of the construction work, enough for your food and expenses.

    Please non-smokers without dogs.
