Hi all travelers and families! there!
We are a family of four now getting 5 (our boy is 7 and our girl 5 years old now) living on a beautiful little spot in the sunny south east of austria. The place is calm and can feel like little paradise...
After living 5 years in our self-build round wood-clay-house we bought now our own new paradise place. it is a old farm house with 1 ha beautiful space just next to the forest. we and our 2 bunnys live here to learn mostly how to manage self sustainable living ;) our kids are at home free learning and experiencing with us.
We cook and sleep mostly outside, care for our plants in the garden, love the old apple- and nut-trees and eat rasberries and strawberries in the summer. at the moment all of us "live" in a circus wagon in the garden and enjoy this feeling very much.
What we like also very much about the area is the open minded and friendly neighbourhood of this area in Südburgenland. People who want to escape city-life and and the system come here for more than 30 years, thats why nearly many neighbours are kind of old hippies with the same flow like us. That makes life here very easy and connected, everybody helps everybody with a smile..
our future projects are making a swimming pond, planting more and more trees, renovating the old farm house, rebuilding the round clay house on the new spot.
feel free to share some time with us here and learn from each other!
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
we mostly learn all day
how to do all by ourselfs, building furniture you need, sewing what you need,
planting what we eat,
i think you could get an idea of how we build and what you could build on your own?!
and of course: a huge benefit is always to connect together and learn from each other,
help each other
the most important works at the moment are
- always the garden!! (planting, caring for the vegetables,…)
- building and construction work in the old house (walls, floors, etc.)
- caring for the children
In summer we all stay together in the garden,
in tents or caravan if you have, if necessary,
there is a one-person small circus wagon for workaways home
and there is also one room in the house which can be comfortable for a family of 3 to sleep in summer.
