Ross and I have been taking care of an elderly couple with Alzheimers, and now they have passed away. We are busy building our dream of a bike lodge here in South West France. I am a visual artist and specialize in monumental welded steel sculpture. Ross is an amazing musician and is very eclectic, and is also doing most of the construction renovation work on his own! He needs help!
The property we live on is big and contains 36 fruit trees, a small forest that was recently thinned out. The fruit trees are all organic and need pruning, and picking of fruit in the right season.
We are building a super exciting bike lodge and need people with strong hands and skills! We need help with the renovation with work such as tiling, painting, building shelves, and waterproofing. Soon a new sewage link will be put in and there will be landscaping work to be accomplished as well.
The property has many trees that need pruning and wood needs to be split as well as branches hauled from one end of the property to the other. There is a wood chipper which could also be used to make wood chips.
On the property is a small cabin that needs work done on it such as redoing the wood floor, fixing the roof, and painting it. This also can be your home in the summer. The big house can also house people in three separate rooms, with kitchen facilities and bathrooms. We live in a house separately at the bottom of the property, Laird and Luna the goats have their own cabin too!
This September and October there are specific jobs that need to be done, one being the finishing of a guest room, and the other the construction of a bathroom for the bike lodge. We need someone who knows how to do tiling and maybe even plumbing or electric work.
When at the end of the day the work is done, the Pyrenees mountains are beckoning, the ocean and the surf is an hour away, and the biking is world class just out the door. You are welcome to borrow our bikes and explore the countryside.
