About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

My house is located on the border of the Machalilla National Park in Ecuador. I am building several Garden Cabañas surrounding a swimming pool on a mountainside. I am building various retaining walls with large river stones from Cuenca mixed with smaller beach stones collected in Manabi. Bamboo and wood are local products which I hope to use creatively mixing a variety of materials to create an ecological vacationers paradise.
