  • Description


    We are family with 2 boys. We live in a quiet village 60 km from Tallinn. We are starting to build our own house. The first building was sauna. We already have a small vegetable garden and some apple and plum trees. We have a lot of woods and untouched nature in Estonia. One of our hobbies is to walk in the woods and take nature photos.

    You can see countryside and live outside a city. We live in a very quiet and safe place.
    We can visit different places in Estonia. Our country is quite small. You can drive from one end to another in 3-4 hours. We have a lot of untouched nature.
    We have nice places nearby to spend time and swim during the summer.
    You can learn language. We speak fluently English, little-bit of Russian and Finish.

  • Help


    We need somebody who can help to finish up a wooden sauna, covering the house outside walls with plaster , painting some walls etc. Finishing a shed in the garden. We don't need necessarily an expert, but somebody who is willing to learn and help.
    We need some help in the garden - cutting the grass, digging ground, making firewood.
