    Update: currently we are looking for someone with building skills, who can create a fenced area for the bunnies🐇🐇

    We are a family of four, living in an old house which is beeing renovated step by step.... in the outskirts of Linz. I am 33, Ismail is 37, Johann Can is 6 and Valerie is sweet 1❤️.

    I m a stay at home mum, our big boy is unschooled, the little one home anyways. My partner is working as a special needs teacher at school and working on the house a lot.

    I’d love to have more adults here in the house, as the needs of a one and a six year old really differ at times....I d be happy about someone who shares the curiosity of seeing kids grow up and also openly questions my way of guiding them, I m always grateful for new learnings. right now life here is quiet, so it would be soooo nice to have ppl here who like to share their personality, stories, interests with us, who bring in some new fews on a fun and pure life ❤️ , like to help us out with daily tasks. And people who are willing to just be there, run with johann-can, play jumping games on the beds, fishing games in the house, make treasure hunts, he really loves that at the moment, he also loves to play by the little water besides the house, and if you are willing to pretend being a monster that gets tied up, he will be happy to follow you through the whole garden and tie you to a tree 😅.....we also like card- and boardgames......when ismail is home we like to sit together by the table and have some nice food, have coffee and cake in the afternoons, and talk........we enjoy making bonefires when it’s dark and grill some potatoes in it...we are appreciating little sensations....

    Once you decide to stay with us I wish you to feel free to be yourself and do what you love and be purely honest if you need us to change something for your sake🦋.

    I‘ m interested in neuro science and how people learn in their natural way without being fed with information or being taught skills they are not asking for. If there are behaviours of the kids that i struggle with, I really try to find out what I could change and I try not to make them change their behaviour. So they are my teachers on the path of trying to be a dedicated and loving human being.

    Little one is nappy-free, i try to feed them well, screen time is very limited for Joli. We enjoy to go with the flow of the days, just wake up and see what the day is bringing us. We just do things around the house, like going for little walks, walking to the lake „Pleschingersee“, visiting neighbor kids, being in the forest, that‘s right in front of our house..... Johann Can is a little fisherman, so they go fishing very often in the warmer times. Some days we go to the city meeting friends at the playground, going for coffee /cake, walking by the beautiful river Danube. Sometimes we go to kids ceatre, cinema, dance performances, ..... or we visit grandmas 40 km away or friends. Once a week we go to a homschooler meeting. To this tours you are always welcome to join. We regularly have other families over for visits and sleepovers.

    All in all, I try to choose things that we can do together and where the kids can join on a kidbased niveau.

    kids needs come before cooking and housework here. I don‘t cook warm food on a regular basis as it’s too....often we just eat apple, avocado, bread, just organic whole food products that don‘t need to be cooked. there’s water from our own source, very good quality. We are not raw food eaters, but eat easy for the convinience of saving time and energy..... When Ismail is home and one can be with the kids we love to cook a yammy dish. If you like cooking, I d be happy to cook together.....

    The garden here is big enough, we have built 3 raised beds, theres a strawberry bed, a lot of fruit bushes and fruit trees, a variety of wild and cultivated herbs, And 4 wild chicken who sleep in the neighbours haselnut-bush (in a height where we can tell them good night from the 1st floor bathroom window) so the fox won’t hava a chance to get them....they give us some eggs in the warm season, and we are very greatful for having them here ❤️. We could say it’s an accidentilly caused permaculture garden, raised through a lack of resources.

    This spring we plan to have an excavator coming and create some flat plateaus to make caring for the garden areas easier.

    We wish a cat and a few rabbits to move in with us at some time in the future....

    The house is in constant progress, some rooms are really lovely and others are raw, or just useable. And there are chaos rooms, like the garage. There are a lot if crafting and mending tools, just stuffed into one room,😩and it‘s sometimes really frustrating when we are in the middle of a project and can‘t find a thing. Under the roof there is a treassure of craft materials that I ve been collecting for a long time, but had to pause for the reality that I don’t have time for them, like fabrics and a lot of sewing supplies. There’s also a sawing machine in the house and a guitar and little ringy and clingy instruments ..... (i was a primary school teacher before becoming a mum.....)

    There are some really nice old bikes that can be repaired and used if you are a bicycle lover.....

    I m visioning to make this a little place where people and families can gather, feel good, share their thoughts and dreams, and send good energy out into this world.... for the summertime I m hoping to get a huge tippi for hosting some more ppl....

    What I can offer you is big interest in natural and respectful child upbringing, I can speak German with you if you want, I have learned a lot about nutrition and health in my life, the garden offers a wide range of herbs and fruits that I can teach you working with if you’re interested, like making tea-mixes, drying fruits, making jam, baking the one or other cake/tarte, you can surely benefit from meeting our friends and extendet family, we can show you around the beautiful city of linz. I’m trying to understand my emotions, thoughts, their connection to my own upgrowing, the relation between the surrounding of ppl and their behaviour, so if you are interested in psychology and it‘s connection with body and health, I m sure we can have interesting conversations🦋

    The area where we life is surrounded by wild nature, there‘s a lake that can be reached on foot where you can walk agound snd swim in, there are mountainbike tracks, cycle-ways, a bmx parcour, and the cultural diversity and a little art scene in the city of Linz. Linz is big for music and Close to our home there is the johannes kepler university, and the biologiezentrum, a center for biology.

    Public transport is very good here, so it‘s possible to go to vienna, or to various beautiful natural ressourts of Austria, where you can hike, or ski and do a lot of outdoor-sports.

  • Arbeit


    I d be happy if you’d be with the kids and me especially in the time around midday and in the evening before bedtime, creating some easy dishes together and ask you to load and unload the dishwasher and clean the Kitchencounter and table in the evenings so we can have breakfast in a quite nice place, and occasionally help with easy housework like hoovering, hanging up the laundry or tidying up the kids room with johann can.

    More details about our daily tasks here, but that’s only if you really like to read a lot more....

    I may ask you to be with little one while I m supporting Johann-Can with his projects, or be with him while I nurse Valerie or bring her to bed, be with them while I load the washing machine....join big boy on his way to his neighbor friend or pick him up. It would be great to have someone here when I m losing it, being impatient, telling the kids that it’s not about them, that mumy is just having a taugh moment..... maybe giving me and my boyfriend a break by taking playtime with the kids on a saturday morning or staying with them some evening so that we can watch a movie.

    I t would be miraculous if you had some love for arranging things, as toys rarely stay in the playroom and need to be brought upstairs regularly.

    You will not be left alone with the kids, me or Ismail will be with you, excapt we agree on some time where you join the big kid to meet a neighbor friend ...if you are willing to.

    If you are interested Ismail would surely be pleased to have some help with the construction he‘s doing, but that‘s only if you like to. Maybe if you are strong we might ask you some day to help him move some furnitures or paint some cupboards...... The house and garden are always in progress, any idea or actual updoing is welcome! So if you are crafty in a way that goes with the soul of our house , you’re welcome to put your hands on it! We have a lot of crafting devices, that are waiting to be used again. There are a lot of plain walls and doors that are waiting to get alive, there’s wood that was painted in the old days and will be happy to be freed by sanding, and given some new life. We have many rolls of wallpaper that could be attached to walls, but yes, all that is a question of love and organisation ❤️.

    In the basement there’s one room that could be transformed into a second more private guest room if someone is so skilled and wants to help us with that.....

    Or building a simple outdoor kitchen.....

  • Unterkunft


    In the house there is a guest room with a double bed, it’s on the same floor as our bedroom, with a great nature few, there is a (small but lovely) bathroom with a shower for you downstairs in the house. To the sleeping situation you should know that the kids mainly go to bed late..... but when we are upstairs in the evening you can have some privacy in the kitchen and livingroom area and in the summer outdoors anyways.

    We like to share meals and eat as a family as often as possible, if you like that too, we are happy if you join! therefore we are grateful if you see it as natural to share kitchen tasks like preparing food, setting the table and clearing the table and kitchen after eating.

    Please use the kitchen freely whenever you want to prepare something for yourself and put things back in place after using them, like milk, spices, bread.....There is a shelf in the fridge with things to be eaten any time, other than stuff thats planned for family meals, and the kitchen basics you can use any time.
