Family looks for the help with reconstruction of the house in the countryside. We ar four members: mom Milada (50), dad Eda (50) and two sons Vojta (22) and Martin (24). We have got the dog Berny. It is also garden with nice trees in here and nice nature around. We try too do everything by ourselvs and experiment a bit sometimes, so it is some space for creativity too. It is not everybody allways here, so we do not do everything and speak all the languages all the time.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You can learn basic reconstruction works. We are not professionals, but we alredy leaned from the mistakes. It it something as a permaculture in the garden, so you can get some new tips and experience. We make regulary the trips to the nature and sleep in the forest. If someone wants to join us, welcome!
Reconstruction works in the house:
Basic carpentery (making the floors and ceilings, etc.)
Making thermo isolation (natural bricks we make and rock wool)
Bricklaying (mainly the stone walls in the cellar and doing plaster)
Demolition of old parts (walls, ceilings)
Cleaning of old wooden construction.
Bringing the stones from the forest.
Making drainage (diging hole and bringing gravel)
Works in the garden:
Helping with vegetable field.
Harvest and conservation (depends the season)
Diging out invasive plants and creating new field.
Cutting the branches of the fruit trees.
Cutting the wood for the winter.
And a lot of smaller things that will appear.
You have two options of accommodation: Sleeping in the attic (more people together) or in the tent in the garden. Hygiene standart is a bit lower in here. We have one bathroom for all and if you need warm water it is nescesary to heat it in the couldron. The kitchen is quite small, so we make one food (vegetarian, meat optional) for all.
We share food all the day. Lunch and dinner mostly cooked vegetarian meal (meat also possible).
The transport is a bit difficult. Bus is coming one kilometer from here and the closest train station is five kilometres far away. We recommend the train, becouse it many nice views on the way.
This area is geologicly interesting. You can find augit stones on hill above the village. The closest town is Stříbro. It is nice historic centre in there and possibility to visit the silver mines in the season. You can visit the mineral spring nerby.
