    Descrição

    2022 is going to be a huge year for me and I will be looking for a lot of help! My house is so badly damaged that I am going to dismantle and rebuild it. I have another house in the village which I will either live in or use for storage. This is what I expect to be doing in the next few months:

    February & March
    Prepare a space for a caravan or storage unit
    Move furniture and belongings into storage
    Make the garden secure for the dogs
    Repair and maybe improve the other house and clear the garden

    April
    Build basic shelters for building materials

    May and June
    Take the house apart, saving all reusable parts

    Then I'll start on rebuilding. The decision isn't made yet but I may build with straw bales or cob. There will be water re-use systems

    I hope I'll still have time to work on the food growing area in the field behind the house. It's far enough away from the house that it won't be covered in building materials.

    Before I move out the accommodation will be in the house and after that could be in the old house or in tents. Both houses are comfortable, but rustic, especially the old one. Here the toilet and shower are both in outbuildings separate from the main house, although the corridor to the shower room is under cover, and there is a small compost toilet next to the shower room (when I can get sawdust or similar for it). At the old house, the shower is currently outside too so that could be a worthy improvement. I'd prefer non smokers, or at least someone prepared to only smoke outside.

    My two dogs are friendly although one sometimes needs a little time to feel comfortable around new people. They don't have any health problems or special requirements.

    I'd ask for around 20-25 hours help a week in return for accommodation and food. I'm relaxed about work times, depends on our mood, the weather and what else is happening. Vegan meals are provided, and it would be great to share the cooking sometimes. I can accommodate one single person, or a couple / two people travelling together sharing a room. This could be more if people are camping.

    Occasionally I'm also looking for a house-sit arrangement.

    My house is in a good position in a popular village, with 2 shops and a bar. The nearest town, Chirpan, is around 7km away with a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants, banks, supermarkets, and a fabulous weekly market. There are 3 buses daily into Chirpan, with an extra one on Fridays for the market. The house is basic but comfortable, with electric hob and oven, fridge freezer, washing machine, and hot shower. I don't have a television, but there is high speed internet. The garden has a nice view up into the hills. There are many tracks around the village that are great for walking with the dogs.

    I'm self employed, working from home, with hours to suit myself. Work is a means to an end, just to earn enough to live. Apart from permaculture and becoming self sufficient, I'm into meditation, yoga, rowing, walking, cycling, going to the gym, playing uke (very badly, in truth), reading, and generally being outdoors.

    The internet is good but it does stop occasionally, so it would be good to have mobile backup if it's essential to always have internet. It's not usually down for long. The house is small so at the moment I can't offer a dedicated office space.
