I'm looking for someone who has experience of building a timber frame house or who enjoys and is handy working with wood. We are putting up a smallish wooden extension to a stone building and putting in a bathroom and kitchen. The timing is from about the 2nd week of september and could last for a couple of weeks to about a month. There'd be plenty of other building to do once the extension is built if you wanted to stay on a bit.
The accommodation at the moment is quite basic - you'd be sleeping in the partially rebuilt stone house (the roof at the moment is just plastic sheeting), there's a dry loo and cold shower in the garden (and sometimes a hot shower at a neighbour's). We'd provide all meals and the working day would start about 9 and finish about 4 in the afternoon. The weekends would be free for you to do what you want.
We're in a beautiful river valley - the célé river, in the Lot. The river runs through our hamlet and I often go for a swim after work. The house is at the end of the hamlet and surrounded by hills and woods with deer and boar - there's no traffic - all very calm. Lots of walking in the wild, canoeing, bicycling, fishing.
We are two friends, english guy and french woman who are building 2 separate houses. We are very adaptable, change our plans about 3 times a day, and even though we try our best I have to admit we are sometimes a bit disorganised,
so if that sounds like it might frustrate you...
The local village is marcilhac sur célé (about 3km away), and autumn here if the weather is good is a dream.
I have a dog and cats. We're happy to speak only french or only english, or both if that's what you want.
