I am a self-employed freelancer who lives in the city, but spends his own free time maintaining and developing his rural house. My name is Yanis, I am 35 years old.
Last year I built a sauna, dug a pond, planted some apples and made some experiments trying to increase my fish population.
I'd be glad to find some helpers who could live there and see after the house.
Help in the house
Volunteer traveler with us will learn to:
latvian and russian culture and traditions,
latvian and russian languages
enjoy slow rhythm of the rural life
appreciate clean air and beautiful nature
take pleasure in observing the stars at night (we are far from the city, so we have plenty)
This year I want to build several summer houses on my territory, so I'm looking for someone who could provide some basic help with that OR help with household tasks while I'm building.
So if you're able to help with the building process, your tasks will be something like bringing the instruments and materials that I ask for from the main house (nothing too heavy), digging holes for the foundation.
If you're unable to help with the construction, you will help by washing the dishes (I have dishwashing machine), cleaning the house with vacuum cleaner, doing laundry (have washing machine), cooking.
Even if you're unable to help with household tasks, you can contact me and we will figure out what you could help with.
Russian, Latvian, English
You will stay in the separate room in the house. You will have access to the kitchen, bathroom, shower, sauna and everything else that is in and outside the house.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 3 days a week
