I am desperately looking for help with cob (clay, straw and sand) rendering of a ceiling as seen in the photos. The floor is also to be made of clay and wood tyles. So I need a fit healthy person that wants to do something different and be able to stand back and admire their work at the end. The is opportunity to do some shaping/modeling if you are artistic!

The poly tunnel needs doors - as seen in the pictures before I order the plastic. Any one with carpentry skills would be very much appreciated!


Summary: I need help in our life here! Sustainable living. Vegetarian. Building with cob. New poly tunnel being built. Creating a space in the roof of one building using clay on the walls and floor. Large gardens for growing most of the food eaten here. Lots of processing and preserving. Also make yoghurt and goats cheese. Next year I'm looking at building a "tiny house" sans permit, primarily using the resources available here.

I'm Zoe and I'm the owner of this place. I used ... more inside

Bonjour everybody:)


"UPDATE:

pls do not write us if you want to come the first two weeks of August. Thank you"


As you see in our profile, we had already some helpers, and thanks to them the house and the garden are much nicer.
We have a cat, who is in the house.

We both work from home, so we'd like to have somebody who could help with housework. CLEANING and helping with cooking would be always appreciated.
And some ironing would be greeeeat;)

If you can make a website (something serious) it would be a help too, but if you are willing to do JUST that, pls do not contact us.
However the most important help would be gardening. Which includes collecting stones from the garden, and from April, planting and watering also. Cleaning the garden is a lot of work, and you need to have a strong back:) pls consider this before writing us.

This summer we'd like to paint the ceiling in the living room.

We are always open to your DIY ideas.

On the rainy days we'd li... more inside

Immediately, (now very urgent as the flies have arrived) we have need of help with putting stabling into the barn, owing to planned help not being able to come.

We are a British couple who have lived in the north of Pays de la Loire for 9 years, trying to be as self-sufficient as possible (given the limitations of the size of our small holding and our advancing years!!). We have 2 very large vegetable plots, a large poly-tunnel, chickens and rabbits. We also have 2 Irish Cobs, used for riding and driving, as well as 3 dogs and 3 yard cats. English is spoken all the time, but we have adequate French for conversation and everyday circumstances.

Our smallholding is surrounded by countryside, both fields and forest (the nearest neighbour is 600m away). The property is bounded by a small stream. The nearest shop, boulangerie and hotel/restaurant are 7km away. We are equidistant (13 km) from Bauge, La Fleche and Le Lude, all of which have farmers markets.

We are looking for... more inside

Other work like building composting bins from wood.
I work locally as a gardener for private individuals but only part time.
