We need 1 volunteer
I need help restoring the house and its outbuildings, but also help around the house itself.
I have experience restoring houses and I will help with the work where I can, but I am not as physically able as I used to be, so I need some extra help.
If you have interest in house restoration, then your help would be greatly appreciated.

My property consists of several wooden buildings, a well, a cellar-fridge, an outdoor toilet, two ponds and an outdoor wood fired bathtub. The building style and my way of life is in keeping with that of life as it was in northern / eastern Europe until the 1960s, set in the countryside of Latvia.
It is a fairly basic way of living, compared with that of modern western Europe, and this is by personal choice. I live in a minimalist non materialistic way, but don't worry I have electricity, WiFi, internet, stereo system, microwave, tv, etc ... I'm not radical about my way of living in the simplicity.
But what my place has to offer is the location here in the peaceful Latvian countryside, where you can truly enjoy the beautiful scenery and experience true peace and quiet.
Sharing of life is just a question of organisation, let's talk about it to find the best solution for all of us.
I expect from the helper 5 hours of real work per day/ 5 days a week, in return for your own private room in a guest cottage, meals, teaching you a practical experience in house renovation, full weekends off, free internet use, meeting with local latvian people.
I have also bicycles that you may borrow, and I can also help to organise excursions for / with you.
In addition to the 5 hours / day mentioned above, I expect a free sharing of time for housework: cooking, going to the store, cleaning the dishes and vacuuming the common rooms.
