  • 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.

    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 German.

  • Help


    We need somebody who can help to finish up a wooden garden shed. Building a pond 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.
