UPDATE FEB 2015
According to current situation helpers need to have a russian visa to get to Crimea.
We already have a big house walls built, this year we plaster it everywhere, making earthern floor, plumbing, wiring etc. - finally make it "liveable" this year and move in.
I'm building two cob buildings at my property in Sevastopol. Need helpers for cobbing and other concomitant activities.
At this moment i have a stemwall for the little workshop and i've started cobbing; i hope in parallel we will be able to build a house as well.
So here i will try to put together all the information needed. Please, feel free to ask anything!
Below is a little video for you, dear helper, have an idea how it looks like.
We are working around 6-7 hours a day with lunch break from 12.00 to 14.00 5-6 days a week. It is possible that we will have to wake up quite early (say, 5.30 - 6.00 in the morning) to have cool morning hours for work, otherwise the heat in the middle of the day can make work impossible
Type of work
Mixing cob using tarps, transferring soil for the mixing, putting cob on the wall; plaster, roofing, flooring, dooring :) and windowing. Generally, everything what connected to cob building.
Mostly it's a
- oatmeal with raisins/apple/nuts and coffee/tea/herbal tea for breakfast;
- salad (assorted vegetables) with black bread for lunch;
- boiled potatoes, buckwheat, lentils and so on for dinner.
We have fridge and electric oven
There is a place for tent; toilet of the simple "village" type with the seat, water tank for shower; huge water tank ; electricity
We have sun mostly all the time in summer; there are 3 beaches close to plot, you can google "jasper beach sevastopol" to have an idea how it looks like.
Open skies, beautiful sunsets seen from the picturesque cliff; birds and little tree frogs singing in the night :)
