We've been renovating and converting a huge barn using natural materials and reusing the original materials where possible.
We are situated in the heart of the forest in the Perigord Natural Park 4km from nearest town, which is lively and beautiful. If you want to be totally immersed in nature and appreciate the wildlife, this is the place for you.
We would like to get a team together to prevent further decay of the larger barn i.e. To strip the roof and retile, also to rebuild parts of stone wall.
There is a lot of work to be done outside like repairs to roof, moving stones, clearing ground, making drainage, levelling, fencing and extending the vegetable plot. The ground has been left unattended for many years but we have made a start planting fruit trees and started a veggie plot using the principles of Permaculture. Julia has done the permaculture certificate and would be happy to pass on what I know. We lived off grid for seven years but do now have electricity.
We would also like help making an outside compost toilet and solar shower room.

I like gardening, yoga, nature. Keith likes a challenge and is building a wind turbine from scratch.
