“Imagine no possessions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man.
Imagine all the people sharing all the world.”
John Lennon (Imagine)

I’m 56 but still an incorrigible, professional DREAMER; dreaming for an alternative lifestyle: SHARED HOUSING.

I started this project in 2007 thinking of people who want an ESCAPE (for a gap year or a longer haul); a place where SAD people could find a pillow and a slice of bread (remember the old pilgrims?), FOR FREE; a HOME with people, flowers and animals everywhere.

Unfortunately, the world crisis cut my wings; all work stopped, but not my dream. The house and property need finishing, repairs and improvements. I can’t afford to do them all by myself. I’m looking for some people with the same healthy dose of craziness; people with the same way of thinking and ideas; people who want to spend some money to finish this project. Of course, will be a legal shared property prepared for helpx-ers. Further, it would be very nice to have some kind, easygoing people visiting and living with us in return for some help with the work. People interested to go somewhere, meeting warm and friendly people, and doing something different for a while. Maybe they’ll gain happiness. I'm sure THEY WILL BE RICHER INSIDE before they leave!

We have many things that need to be done in the garden, outside, around the house, etc. There is a variety of work, from the simple to the complicated but mainly DIY jobs in the house - finishing and painting walls, carpentry, woodworking - or coming up with ideas about how to make something amazing with little money. There are NO work schedules! We can work (when and if we want to), we will laugh, sing, cook and eat together, enjoy a camp fire; go for a walk, sleep … or whatever (if we don’t want to work). Participants will plant (if they want!) their own tree, tagged with his (or her) name. Participants' family, friends (or any person sent by the participant) are entitled to come in the future, for a FREE homestay, whenever they want. They can stay as long as they want.

The house is located in a village in Bukovina, in the northern part of Romania. This is a piece of the 18th century in Europe, a corner of heaven, a still ecologically pure world, still untouched by the “progress and civilization” of the rest of the world. Here you can see the roads, houses, people, places and habits you learned about in "history class” in school (from ancient history). Here you can see The History of the Planet's Civilization. It's not a "museum" - it's real and "ALIVE". We have villages here where people work and live like many in the Bible must have.

It is so quiet here! This place is ideal for an ESCAPE - a peaceful and sunny place; a very good place for artists (writers, painters, singers) or online workers. It’s a nice environment for people that enjoy a quiet place with a garden, dogs and cats, far away from the busy town, a chance to explore, to meet people and to be free!

For those who need perfect living conditions, this may not be the ideal place! At the moment the conditions may be quite primitive but are HEALTHY, EXOTIC & INTERESTING - this is all part of the adventure. We DO have electricity and water. We will have delicious HEALTHY, ALL NATURAL food (veggies, chicken, eggs, etc) coming mainly from our neighbors. Starting with next year we’ll have our own!

Join us if you believe in HOUSEMATE, won't you?
