Hi', I'm Thom, 29 years old musician, based in France (Lot, 46220). I used to share my life between Europe and South America (Chile mostly) before covid and now installed here in France where I bought an old house and i'm planning to do lot of renovation and create a nice garden for me and my chickens !
I'm a music label manager, dj and music producer so there is always lot of music in the house, some instruments, a small vinyl collection and lot of friends coming over all the time.
I used to travel a lot and want to go back on the road next winter. Here we can speak French, English and Spanish.
Bricolage et projets de construction
S’occuper des animaux
We can speak in French, English or spanish if you want to improve your skills, also feel free to come with your instruments etc.
I definitely can't tell "you will do this or that" and that's it. So i'll just explain the different things i want to have done sometilmes and if you're up to, we can do it together or by yourself (i gonna work A LOT this summer).
THE MAIN IDEA :
Take care of the garden (clean up the spaces, build structures for the tomates and stuff like this. Take care of the chickens (feed them and clean their small house maybe once every 2 weeks).
SIDE IDEAS [Building]
Build fences around the property (to have an alpaga or a cheep sometime), try some soil and hemp constructions (this land is full of super good soil for building, i would love to try new stuff). Clean the old rocks wall and make a new natural lime concrete refreshment (no idea how to call this in english). Clean and paint a small caravan and build a terrasse for it. Instal a bees house (if you have skills, i have none in this). Small refreshment works into the wood-house you will occupy. Etc.
MUSIC & SOUND [just an idea]
We are running a small non-profit label (world music). We want to work on a new project with bands from the area to help them and create new compilation to rework some old "world music" songs we like. There is a lot to imagine and create, so it's something that we can discuss if you want to give a hand on this kind of things. I guess the work will be mainly to reach out some artists and do some paperwork (and if you like, come with us to the concert place to organise and participate.
Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
Mostly interested to learn porteguese or arabic. I can't teach properly the languages i know cause i learned by myself, but we can talk all the time to improve our languages and words etc.
There is a cabin / Cottage just near by the house with (21 square meters) with bedroom and dry toilets + little kitchen eventually. No hot water here, but it's warm already. We have a bar near by (10 minutes by car) you will be very welcome to eat and chill there all the time (riverside).
I have a van there that you can use if you need to go in town etc.
The idea is not to have someone working all the time, it's more for someone that has others things to do (freelance or something) and who wants to escape in the countryside for a bit.
Trucks, animals, musicians welcome
L'idée n'est pas du tout d'avoir une aide pour tout et tout le temps, l'idée c'est plutot d'avoir quelqu'un de temps en temps qui aurait voudrait avoir un toit à la campagne pour quelques temps.
Camions, animaux, instruments de musique etc. welcome
Accès Internet limité
Nous avons des animaux
Nous sommes fumeurs
That would be a must, you'll have plenty of time here to work on your own projects and i'll always happy to share about it ! But, we do not have wifi connexion here for now ... (sharing with the phones only).
There is space to park the van very very close to the cabin, welcome !
You can come with animals of course but I have chickens and maybe a cheep soon, so, your animal have to be friendly.
15/20 semaine. (depends of the deal we will have)
