Looking for Female Construction Workers

czech-flag.jpg (571 bytes) construction chicksHi, we're reconstructing houses and are looking for female construction workers to spice up our crew. At present we are working in the beautiful mountains of Southern Bulgaria, and during the winter we plan to continue on some other houses on the Greek island of Thassos. The houses are all owned by Roger, and I am his friend who likes to travel around the world.

So far there are four of us and we are looking for additions. Roger offers standard local rates plus free food and accommodation. If interested send CV with picture to me.
But be warned because you have to be a little bit of a camper. Check out the toilet below in one of the houses we are working on. Otherwise you can go for a walk in the neighbouring forest. Hopefully the pictures speak for themselves.

You do not necessarily need to be experienced in construction and it does not necessarily require a lot of heavy lifting, but you should be able to work manual labour about 8 hours a day.

Right: main house we are working on Vrbovo.

Above: just finished cutting the hillside with a sickle.

Left: one of the toilets we do not use but similar to the one we do use. Piping and such stuff often gets installed last in a house, but many times we live out of a finished house or hotel while working on another. Not always the case though!

Right: not one of ours but typical of the delapitated houses that many prefer not to sell but hold onto.

Vorbovo village where one of the houses are. Below a friendly French guy is reconstructing his roof.

In the days of old the village was full of stone masons and the chimneys can be quite interesting.

Right: The Bulgarians like to post people who died.

Above: at the bottom of the path to our house in Vrbovo, just above the Frenchman's house. If we park by the village pub it is 800 steps uphill walk to our project!

Right: part of the path towards the top of Vrbovo village where our house is.

Above: Roger along the path to the top. Notice the mold on the tree branch to the right. That mold only grows in environments where the air is VERY clean.

Left: went for a walk along a path above the village. Saw fresh bear tracks and eventually decided to turn back.

There are several things interesting about how Roger sets up his operations, so it can be a good learning experience. As you can see from his Global Warming Response website above, Roger, an engineer by profession, is concerned about the environment and the state of our planet and is shooting for self sufficiency. From the picture on the left you can see that he uses piping to distribute the heat from the furnace around the room, and then a fan to push that hot air back downwards into the room. He uses solar panels to heat water and is now working on a grant from the EU to set up an electrical solar power system for the entire village. He also uses advanced septic technology to distribute sewage waste under a vegetable garden for automatic fertilization.

Roger knows many languages and is good at waving his arms to get his point across. He is an easy person to get along with. Technically you do not need to know English to work with him, but since many of us do converse in English, it could also be a good opportunity for you to improve your English or learn from scratch!
