There's doors, there's painted walls, there's rooms that look like rooms! The coming months will be spent concentrating on completing small tasks involving carpentry and metal work, so we're looking for people with these skills, but also not obligatory, if you have a good intuition, a strong work ethic and take initiative then we can find work for you! The main 'big' task to come is to convert the downstairs level of the house into 2 studio apartments - easy! As for the van, following 2 months of technical issues in the engine, we're back on course with the build - we're fitting the second window, panelling the inside walls and roof and then we will be looking to the interior build. We are figuring out electrics and technical aspects so if you have any experience in van building we would be very grateful for your help! All in all, if your are an enthusiastic, sociable person who sees the importance in working but also in sharing good vibes and being part of a community then please send us a message! Come with ideas and creative solutions to sticky problems :) *️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️ I am Victor, I'm French, I'm 28 years old and I have travelled a lot in recent years. At our house we speak English, French and German. Following a few years of travel I have now returned to my home village, living in an old family house that has been converted for the occasion into a shared flat. The house and its garden need a lot of work, my aim is to create a beautiful shared house for 7 people. The project is very large, there are a lot of major works (creation of a vegetable garden, maintenance of trees, renovation of several rooms, conversion of an old barn, insulation of the house, creation/renovation of furniture, painting, and much more). My family also lives in the same village, so I often go to help them, especially with gardening at my grandparents' house. I have a lot of passions and cooking is one of them that you will get the chance to enjoy regularly. There is an old bread/pizza oven in the cellar also! I was essentially a vegetarian before discovering Freeganism - by adopting this new philosophy I now allow myself more freedom and there will always be meat and vegetarian products available for everyone :) Despite the rural aspect of life in Hegenheim, the city centre of Basel in Switzerland is less than fifteen minutes by bike (I have several of them that I make available to my guests), as well as the international airport and railway network. The region is magnificent, located at the three borders between France, Germany and Switzerland. The Vosges, Black Forest and Jura mountains meet here. I'll be happy to show you around! The accommodation will be in a private room for the guests. There is often a large team of volunteers, especially in summer, and it is possible for me to accommodate many people! There are always people at home, friends passing by, couchsurfers, former Workaway volunteers returning, etc. Since February 2019, Peach, a lovely Turkish kangal dog has joined the team also :) If you're not in a good headspace or need a lot of time on your own, this might not be the place for you :) See you soon! ......
