  • Description


    We are in the last phase of building a new house and need some assistance to get beyond the finishing line.

    From the 25th March Herman will need some handy person (or a couple) that can help out with getting the garden ready (drive away building material, rake leaves and soil, chop wood etc), for a couple of weeks (we're flexible on the dates). You will be working next to Herman who will guide you in what needs to be done. We might also need some help carrying furniture.

    I, Sara, will focus on the interior with furnishing and homestyling, so it would be great to have someone to toss ideas with and to help out with shopping, putting furnitures in place and decorating. (If you're skilled in sewing and/or have a drivers license that's a plus, but no must). If you're an artist and would like to create some art work for the walls that would also be welcomed!

    You will be staying in our lake house, which at the moment does not have running water and there's an outhouse toilet, but it's got a beautiful view and a sauna :) During daytime when we're working you can access the bathroom in the new house.

    We have a beautiful 4 year old boy who will be around for some of the time.

    You will be surrounded by beautiful nature here, and hear lots about healthy foods. :) We eat mainly vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, sugar free. You don't have to follow our diet, but we ask you to not cook any meat in the main house. The lake house has some kitchen gear that you can make use of.
