Hi.UPDATE SUMMER 2017

I am looking ideally for helpers with building skills. Specialy Carpenter and cabinet making skills!
I believe in the basic fundamentals of HelpX are important, that is it should be a complete social, cultural and work exchange to each parties benefit. The location offers the chance to live in the heart of a traditional village on the edge of remote countryside. Anybody with experience in building is welcome to help me convert my Mercedes 608 van into a travelling home. Ideally I am looking for volunteers with carpentry and other skills required to fit out the back of the van for living accommodation. I am also looking for volunteers with skills required to begin the construction of a small eco dwelling, off grid, on my farm because I would like to begin a small Alternative eco-community in my farm. Perhaps if you too share this dream you would like to come and build a life for yourself here. I would really love the opportunity to learn a trade and skills, such as: Blacksmith, Metalwork, Ironwork, Carpentry, Joinery,(Alchemy of course!!) Cabinet Making, Roof Thatching, Cooper, Dry Stone Wall construction/repair, Coppicing and Stonemason etc. I live in a beautiful, unspoilt part of South West Greece in the Peloponese very close to the beach. You would be able to stay either at the beach or in my apartment depending on the time of year you visit. I would provide food, cooking facilities and showers. I can help you with everything you need here with information for the area whether you decide to come for holidays or for long stay. We are also interested in separately offering a long-term stay for a couple or family with a building background. Any details of which we will be happy to discuss and may offer a chance for anyone wanting to move abroad a risk free try before taking the plunge.
If anyone wants to contact me then write me a private message
