  • Description


    I am renovating an old stone cottage in Cloughwally, Lettermacaward, Co.Donegal, Ireland overlooking Traighenna Bay. I intend to bring it back to its former use as a smallholding growing vegetables and having a couple of donkeys and goats and some rescued hens. All my life I have been strongly involved in DIY culture and music so I would like to turn it into a place were bands and individuals can come and relax and work e.g.record their music in a little studio space. I hold a master in Fine Arts as well as a degree in German as Foreign Language - I am originally from Berlin, Germany but partially grew up in Ireland because my father lives in Co.Leitrim.

    This is a lovely spot with many friendly people around, some great pubs with traditional music going on on a regular basis, with a surf beach 5km by bike/car and the Bluestack Mountains behind the house. As I am a teacher for German as a foreign language (teaching adults) you could of course benefit from that as well as enjoy this beautiful spot.

    I am renovating an old stone cottage trying to use sustainable materials in Cloughwally
    I would welcome a carpenter to help me build a shed for donkeys and goats and a compost toilet and other bits..
    I did a lot of renovating myself but some things I just can't do alone because of lifting and lack of experience and I am pretty bad at exact measurements:) Would like to share with an open-minded person, also trying to use sustainable materials.
    If the weather allows I need to do outdoor works like clearing several overgrown areas, wood chopping and gardening.

  • Hébergement


    A little comfi caravan just for yourself. It has a kitchenette and bed and you could use bathroom / shower in the house. I would provide food and cook (vegetarian) or we could do it together.

    I have a (female young) dog, so maybe having a cat visit is not so great.
