The effort behind this is by my good friends David and Renetta.

MAIN STRUCTURE MAINTENANCE.
The small bedroom and the main structure are in need of repairs.
Ideally some brick repointing would be good.

I don't expect you to be an expert but prior knowledge and experience of some sort is definitely necessary.

The deck will be used for many things.
It is and integral part to the finca and the social times we have.

Eat. Play music. Coffee with the sunrise. Wine sometimes with sunset and more ideas are welcome.
We are building with pallets.
Much leveling needs to be done.
Foundations to be made.
Knowledge of working with cement, bricks, wood and landscaping are needed.
This project is in progress.
Knowledge of working with power tools, wood, sanding, varnishing is needed.
There are many other smaller projects.
Best idea is to call and we can discuss experience and figure out if you are right for the exchange.
I would like that you are motivated and willing to take tasks on and enjoy yourself and the style of life that we have here.
The general format is to eat breakfast together and then partake in 3/4/5 hours work until lunch. Depending on the day sometimes mornings can be just a couple of hours work and sometimes afternoons and evenings we can do some things also. Some evenings we need to water and this needs to happens around 6/7. This can take 2 hours. But most of it involves walking and channeling water and opening taps.
Not having to stand around with a hose :-)
I really like to have someone around, its a great source of motivation and I like to meet new people and share this style of living.
I also love to have my own space.
For this reason I ask for someone who has their own van. Sometimes we cook together sometimes not. Of course I will provide food.
I say this with greatest of respect and with out judgement; I prefer not to co-habit and work with people who's main priorities in life are to smoke weed. So please its best not to contact if that is the case. I am absolutely fine with people who enjoy a beer and the occasional smoke socially, round a fire etc, but by no means should it be a daily thing.
Its a beautiful place here and its a true pleasure to live this style of life with such great people around.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Don't hesitate to call and ask me any questions.
