we are a young couple, and next door is a family with 3 small girls. we live out of a village, on slopes of a mountain in proximity of a big forest area.
we have moved in in september 2016. we do not do,neither we plan to do anything commercial here.
our project here is just starting, this year we will:
-build a small stable for 2 goats(now)
-build a roundhouse with reciprocal roof(may)
-veggie garden, growing some cereals for a try, planting trees, digging swales, ponds etc.(whenever is not snowing)
we try to work out the way towards and the balance for us of self sufficiency here.
we are looking for two kind of people:
-a person who would come for a week and join us with our work
-a part-time/full time neighbour
***A week-long helping tasks for next months:
- we are finishing a stable: we need to cut more hay, to cover the roof, put second layer of wooden boards for the walls, fill it with hay, and cover with mud-hay plaster
- we just put up a frame of a 6m roundhouse, we will be putting up a roof by the end of may, we have to peel the bark of the rafters, make some support structures for the action of putting up the roof, we will be putting wooden boards on the walls, so sawing and nailing it
-we have two goats, since beginning of may, they are just getting used to our presence but in few months when they get tame, you could help to milk them maybe once we would like to go for a trip for a day and a half, so milking them during that time
-hay making for goats winter food
-until beginning of june planting
-making fence for the goats
-later in summer will be plastering of the house too
*** There is an empty house two floor, it was just finished, by neighbours who didnt move in, it is going to be sold but until then its better someone uses it if he/she wants. If you look for a place in nature, and are independent, you could possible stay in that house, for a month or longer. Enjoy and do your projects, sometimes join us to do something together.
