Hi travellers, we would love your help on our mud brick post and beam house build.
We nearly have the roof on and are heading West for some warm, but when we get back, it’s mud brick time. We have most of the bricks made but they need to go in the walls. Lots of fun and Many hands makes light work!
We think we are an awesome little fun loving family of Pete (carpenter) myself (teacher) and our 6year old boy, Leyland. We live in a shouse (shed/house) in the bush on 10acres in the Otway Ranges but only 15 mins from Colac and from Forrest too. It's a wonderful place to chill, read, ride bikes, motorbikes, swim in the dam, potter in the garden and play with our son on his very own adventure backyard/playground. We would love you to help us build our house and develop our garden. All permaculturally inspired as Kate’s a permaculture teacher.
We are very social people so you need to be socially capable and able to fit into all situations.
Bricolage et projets de construction
We have a diverse range of friends that are super lovely and would enjoy exchanging lifestyles and cultures. We love to explore, so you would get to see the beauty of the Otway Ranges, old forests and waterfalls.
Ce projet peut impliquer des enfants. Pour en savoir plus, consultez nos directives et conseils ici.

As we live in a shed/house, affectionately called a Shouse, we have extra space in a caravan which is attached to the Shouse. That space would be all yours, which is nice and cosy, but remember we live In the bush so it's not fancy! Food is for sharing and brings the family together, so bringing new recipes to the table is always welcome.
Life in the Otways is simply beautiful for us. It's slow and we only have a little reception so if you can deal with limited online time then come join us for a week or two, or if you love us then stay as long as you like. We have lots of international friends as we are worldly travellers ourselves and everybody just loves being at our place. Come see for yourselves. No sex,drugs and rock n roll is encouraged here but sure go do that in Melbourne during the weekends. The train runs from Colac 3 times a day to Geelong and Melbs.
If you have a drivers licence and CAN drive well, we could help you out with a car to explore the Otways and the Great Ocean Road. Just need to prove your driving skills.
Being capable, self reliant and flexible are attributes that we love and would really help the experience.
Speaking Portuguese would also be awesome but not essential.
