    !!!We are looking for one person or couple to help us with our house renovating project, the biggest need is may-july 2019, please contact us if you are interested!!!

    Hello! We are a little family, Me, my husband and our son. We are living in finnish coutry side, very near town Kouvola, about only one and half hours fron Helsinki by train.

    We have big old wooden house what we are renovating by traditional techniques and materials. We have big (wild) garden with lots of fruit and berry trees. Next summer we will have few chickens also.

    We are looking for house help and baby sitter, or helper to our garden and house projects.

    We are very open minded, nice family. We have been travelling and also volunteering when we were younger. I am teacher of hand crafts and my husband is working as sound engineer and electrician. Nowadays I'm home with our one year old boy.

    We can offer you Finnish lovely home, own room, own peace. We offer you an experience of Finnish style of living, enough freetime to see the country and interesting work with gardening, baby sitting and helping with our renovating project.

    Our house is unfinished, not very fancy yet. Our home is little boheme and living with us not so strict. We enjoy culture experiences, exploring nature, having fun freetime with our friends. We love hiking!

    We have also old old hut in forest (look the picture) if you are interested to try traditional old style living with no electricity and running water, that is also really nice place for nature adventures.

    We open our home also for family with kids <3
