Hi, I have a small piece of land near Rugby and am planning to build a small cabin 6m x 6m this summer, off-grid. Looking for help especially in woodwork and roofing. Place to camp and learn skills using recycled materials (mostly). I have lived off-grid in N. Spain so know the limitations. I am a young 63 year old vegetarian man with lots of travel experience globally. I do not want hanger-ons just people who want to contribute skills and have some laughs.

    Hi Mark.
    I like the sound of the project and have some relevant skills.
    I’m a 39 year old formwork carpenter by trade but I’ve done roofing and flooring and a few bits of 1st and 2nd fix. I’ve an allotment here in London but I’ve not done anything too unconventional with it. I’m a healthy vegetarian, almost vegan, very capable cook. I’m in good nick for my own age. Well travelled, avid reader, don’t watch TV. Lived almost off grid in Indonesia for a year. (Some foods were bought in.)
    Two of my current heroes are Wim Hof and Charles Dowding so that’ll give you some idea of what I aspire to…!
    Look forward to hearing from you soon.
