  • Descrição


    I am renovating my old house (1753) and I need help, in building, gardening, meal preparation, painting, artist painting also, or something we'll find usefull. I live in a little village near the forest. I am a native-born Belgian who has lived in France since 2011. I have green house but my garden is always plenty of weeds.
    I like folk couple dancing, in chain and French dance, but because of the covid, it is impossible t dance for a long long months.
    I ama father of 3 boys (29, 27, and 25 years old). They live at their mum's house in Belgium and occasionally in the Vosges in my home.
    I experienced workaway life as a worker in Scotland in July 2018.

    I make sometimes my bread. I have my own source of pure water.
    I am a member of an association that maintains an old saw mill.
    In order to show you how it works, I would demonstrate it to you by cutting 1 wooden board.

    Two bedrooms, the kitchen is nearly finished. I'll have a big job with my dinning room because I want to put tiles.

    Algo mais...

    I try to I grow vegetables through a greenhouse made with big branches of hazel and next door, a vegetable garden (cabbages, salads) and all that I sow: carrots, potatoes. But because of the work inside and the weather this summer, not a good harvest.

    the railway station of Saint-Dié-des-Vosges is not far from my house. I can fetch you there, or if you have your own car, it is a 10 minute drive. You can take a bus or train to Nancy or Strasbourg, and from there it is an hour ride to Saint-Die-des-Vosges, very easy.
