    Description

    hello! I am Bettina - a mother of two small children. at the moment i am looking for a person with motivation to help me
    finish the work outside (wood, garden & animal area) & also some carpenter interests would be good, to finish some lawers,... in the kitchen. WELCOME :-))


    i started in november 2015 with different helpers from all over the world to renovate an old house. now we are in since 3 years & the basic is done. still something to do in the house & arround there is a big area, where work will not end ;-)
    we live in the countryside with our 3 cats (mina & their 2 "baby"cats + patrik & waltrudi) & 3 ducks. join us - we enjoy our place a lot as it is. we all love the (wild) natur, to celebrate the live with a fire in the garden, (fire) dancing, ... we love to be creative anyway & try to give you the room also to be! for us to live now on this beautiful place is great!!!

    as i wrote, I am a mother of two children - this two are Ferdinand (born december 2011) & Lieselotte (born october 2014). also the children wait for you - to play with you, learn your language,... i always try to find some/enough time to play with them or let them help working - you can call it work if you like;-)

    We love the nature & live very close with it - i use a lot for cooking or making healthy stuff out of it. arround our area there are a lot of mountains, rivers, seas,... & i love to hike - also with the childrens, going with the bike, ski, swimm in rivers & seas,..... I also know a bit about herbes, handwork,.... & at least know more & more about renovating an old house :-)
    i am very interested in the idea permaculture, know a bit about the theoretics & try to live like this for a long time.... to correlate with beeing & working with plants & in the nature effects me a lot & let me grow in harmony & trust - in love.
    also a part in my life is meditation, but i often use less time than i want with it...but you should accept, that I appreciate also evenings in silence and by my own...as much as i like being in exchange with people!

    there is of course always something to do - in & arround the house... & not to forget all this little things what should be done during a day - cleaning, cooking, laundery, harvest,....also the children wait for you - to play with you, learn your language,....

    a lot of work will be to prepare the area around the house, the permakulturgarden area, the chicken area, the playground for the children, making a path, repair the watertank, cut some trees & also plant,... but also kreative work - to make mosaik & / or stairs outside, paint walls colourful, make compost ( & maybe compost toiletts), .... but also some help in the house, e.g. building some new wooden stuff, renovating different rooms, woodworks, preservation of fruits and vegetables from the garden or weekly cleaning

    i appreciative of any help in any of the aforementioned tasks. It would be great if you are organised, have initiative and have some experience in this field.
    Anyone staying at our home needs to have the motivation to complete work to a satisfactory standard! And to be genuinely committed to helping us by doing what we need properly.

    our place is in wankham - near attnang-puchheim - its perfect for going with public transport to the next Citys (to Linz 30 min, to Salzburg 50 min, to vienna 2 hours, 30 min.). you will find a Train nearly every hour!!! i also can give you a bike - good area for this also!

    for me its an act of courtesy to give always an answer. & i made realy bad experiences with less comunication. May i don´t give you an answer at the same day, maybe sometimes a few days later - its not always easy to find time for the internet. but you can be sure - you will get an answer!!!

    i like happy people, with initiative who won't be shy to make for example the own coffee and breakfeast on morning...or start playing with the children or....
    Some days i have to go to work during the week, as i need a helping hand here and there some tasks needs to be done during the weekend or on weekdays in the evening. We'll not be at home for all meals/days, so it's important that you can be independent - you should like this!

    it should not be a problem for you, if you have also enough time for your own...sometimes it is like this - some times i am busy with my family & friends & its also important to take me some time "just" with our family...it should be possible for you, to leave for a while till a few days.

    i can not count the hours for working exactly, for example i don´t know how to count a trip to the mountains with the children - if you come with us, help me carring, play with the children - how to count??? if this would be important for you (to count the exactly working hours), you have to tell me, than we can find together a good solution for everyone.

    !!! important is!!!!!!
    * that you have to be insured for yourself - i can not bear responsibility for you
    * & please be aware: you don't live in a hotel! without explicitly telling you it should be normal for you, that you help preparing meals, getting the table ready or put the things in the dishwasher during your stay...as a matter of course.
    When you see a dirty spot feel free to clean it - you don't have to wait for me to tell you things that need to be done obviously. :-)
    And what i don't like are smartphone-addicted people. Our meals & main rooms are smartphone-free....we love to live the real life! ;-)

    We have some house-rules or call it a philosophy of living - nothing super strict but things that are important for us, for me, like switching off the lights when leaving a room, saving water and energy in general, helping to get the table ready and clean up after meals and having the meals together and no permanent use of a smartphone - it should all be things that are not extraordinary but my experience showed me, that i have to say it....


    for this now, we live more or less in an ready house, with all you need for basicly living there - water, electricity, toilet, an kitchen.... & a lot of great nature around, a little river near.....
    come & join us & the beautiful nature in austria!!!

    I trust in live & I am sure, there is a good solution for everyone possible!!!

    Help

    I would love to have some helping hands for going on in the renovated old house & also the area around (garden area, build some constructions, may construct a building outside for working tools or the bikes,....), make an area for chicken, plant maybe herbes, trees,... make a playground for the children - a treehouse,...

    !! you should know how to use simple tools & about general maintenance and repair !!!

    but also it is a help for me, if you play with the children, go with them for a walk, cook for them/us, make the dishes - the daily housework, clean the house,...
    we share bathroom, toilet & kitchen - of course it is important, to help for keeping it clean.

    the computer is always a big not so nice topic for me - if you are good with, maybe you can help me a bit there...

    & last but not least - it depends also on you, which energy you can use what day for us at this moment - an important thing for me is communication!!! tell me your needs, likes & don´t likes & i am sure, that nothing can go really bad than!!!
