  • Descripción


    We are a family of 5, constructing a straw-bale house in an eco-quarter in a dynamic village, Faux-La-Montagne, Creuse. We are surrounded by beautiful forests of a nature parc 'Plateau Millevaches' in the Limousin. We're looking for help with the construction of the house and permaculture garden and possibly helping with the children.

    You'll learn a bit more about ecological building, building with wood, straw and cob. If you enjoy being in nature, this is a great place to be: surrounded by woods, rivers, lakes. Perfect for hiking or biking. We're in a very dynamic and alternative village, so you might have an exchange in French (or English) with other villagers as well. (Faux-La-Montagne is famous for being a bit of an activist village)

    We're now finishing the exterior walls, with sculptures, windows and plastering. We'll need help with this, as well as preparing windows, floor boards, doing cob work inside, constructing inside walls, help with designing and preparing the permaculture garden, natural water systems, maybe helping with the cooking and kids if you like.

    We have 2 bikes available and some maps to check out the environment. Train station 25 min by car. Local markets and cultural heritage sites to visit. Lakes for swimming and a lot of walking and biking trails. The summer usually has a lot of festivals, but I don't know how it'll be with COVID.

    We have wifi and internet cables. Not so much of a desk space though. At the moment we're living with 5 people in a trailer and yurt. I guess we'll be having internet in the house we're constructing, around October. More space there...
