    Description

    During summer between may and september we are building the second part of our straw bale house. This summer we want to cover the outside walls with a wooden skeleton and strawbales. We put also a new roof on top. There is a lot work to do, building, cooking, cleaning, work in the garden.Experience is not really necessary, but we appreciate it if you have some experience in working outside ,a good pair of hands and a willing
    mind.

    We are a Belgian family of 6, our kids are 25, 23, 18 and 17 years, living on the countryside. We bought our house after returning from almost 4 years of living in South-Africa , where we volunteered for a Belgian NGO. Our family is growing so we need to expand a bit. We chose the most ecological and budget-friendly option.
    We want to exchange our culture and experiences with new people from all around the world. We had a wonderful time with workawayers in the last past years.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    After a good day of work, have some wine or a beer, and discuss life and the world. We traveled a lot ourselves, the best moments were the moments we stayed with families and close to local people. It broadened our view on the world.
    This is an opportunity for travelers that are interested in building with straw and clay first hand! Manual building techniques, some gardening. We take turns cooking, so we can experience dishes from all around the world :) You are welcome in our family, and we can exchange a lot.

    We are in a rural area, but there are good transportation connections close, bus connections at less than 2 kms, train station at 4 km, you can use a bike (it's flat here). Just 35 mins by train to Brussels, Leuven, Antwerp. 1h - 1h30 to Liege, Hasselt or Ghent/Bruges. There is a lot to discover in those cities!
