I welcome you to come and visit one of the most interesting wine regions from Romania, called Dealu Mare. Here I managed to find a beautiful old abandoned house which I plan to restore and prepare as a cycling friendly guest house.

Yes, I am a passionate cyclist and I love the old traditional architecture. I am a civil engineer at the base and I really intend to keep as much as possible the old authentic looks of this beautiful house.

During next weeks in 2016 we will work hard with continuing the restoration works:
- roof cover for main house (completed) - we used wood tiles
- cleaning the bricks and the beams from the cellar (Feb-Mar)
- recreating the floor from the cellar (Mar)
- remaking inside compartments in the main house (Mar-Apr)
- dismantling heavy brick wall from the annex (Feb)
- cleaning brick walls from existent plaster - main house and annex (Mar-Apr)
- completing insulation for the attic (Mar-Apr)
- cleaning the garden, cutting roots and weeds, re-designing the courtyard (Mar-May)
- making wood furniture, restoring existent wood floor, restoring wood window and door frames (Mar-May)

So, as you can see there is plenty of work to do. It would be great if you want to join our project.
We would be able to provide you a place where to stay (apartment in town or a room in the house, we will see) and offer you 100 EUR per month for food (one bread costs here 25 cents, one beer costs 50 cents, a dinner at local restaurant on daily menu is 3.5 EUR).

I also run an bio-agriculture project, I built last year a greenhouse and I gathered from all around Romania traditional seeds of vegetables (especially tomatoes, pumpkins, peppers etc). If you want you can get involved here as well.

What do you say, want to join forces?
