    Hello! I’m Janis(39), I’m living in west Latvia in small village called Vainode.
    I like to express myself in creating space around myself. I’m a carpenter by profession, I’m maintaining small car service to get incomes for renovating the house.

    Several years ago I returned to Latvia to make my own little dream come true. I bought a land with an abandoned house that was built as a hotel for pilots after WW2. Historically there were other similar buildings for the same purpose, but only this one survived. A lot of reconstruction has been done till this moment. I’ve completely renovated few rooms in 2nd floor, built a fireplace, changed windows, doors, electricity, water system, renovated furniture, planted few trees in garden. We have vegetable garden and flowerbeds. I also have a collaboration with Christian community and in charity we offer clothes for everyone who are in need. My vision is to welcome guests here, that they have a place to celebrate, gather inside and outside. Camping, backyard movie nights, crafts fair in garden, small festivals in summer for communities etc.

    Generally I’m focusing on reconstruction of inside. It would be amazing to have few helping hands that could join me to create this space and open it for people.

    I need help with:
    A-Z renovating house, gardening and other tasks
