    Always looking for support from workawayers with experience in building.

    We began the conservation and restoration of our 300 year old home almost five years ago. The house was an active Hammersmith until 1907 this meant the smith used the power of the river to hammer metal into tools and implements.
    It is an all round project with work needed on the building internally and externally as well as outside in the grounds.

    The Hammerschmiede passed though a number of hands over the last 110 years and was sadly increasingly negleged. So we have been giving it much needed TLC. Over the last years we have had amazing helpers though workaway who have enabled us to realise our home and breath some life back into a very tired house. It is incredible how many helpful, kind and caring people are out there and have found their way to our home. We would not have been able to do what we have done without all their help.

    The house has a traditional southern Bavarian alpine wood structure. So a great deal of the work is woodwork. But plastering, electrical and plumbing is also needed. Outside we are landscaping the grounds to suit the surrounding nature.
    We have reached a stage of our renovations were the end is in sight :-) this means that we are looking mainly for helpers with at least some experience in building.

    Our home is situated at the end of a dirt track road in a valley by the river in a forest clearing. It is located in foot hills of the Alps. Austria 10 mins, Switzerland 40 mins and Italy 3 hours away. The only sounds are from the river and the animals. It is a very quite and peaceful place. The nearest ski resort is 15 mins up the road :-)

    Xenia 14 and Balthasar 12 are bubbly and a lot of fun to be with. They go to the Montesorri school.

    I am British and we only speak English at home.

    We love animals and have an amazing Spanish greyhound dog, an arab horse, a cat, ducks, geese, rabbits, chickens and goats.

    Strictly NO Smokers please.

    The area is very beautiful. Very rural. We are only a few km away from the austrian boarder and close to Lake Constance.
    There are many beautful towns and sites and stunning nature. It is great for walking, bycicle and riding.
