  • Description


    Dear all,
    After traveling and doing Workaway myself over the past years I now got my own little project going on;
    Turn this cute stone cottage into a nice home and the shed into a Ceramic studio, a place where people can come for workshops and feel the touch of Clay.

    I fell in love with ceramics 2 years ago, while being on a 'soul-searching' trip in Bali. After a period of healing from a burn-out I'm now more connected with myself and my heart. I love to live more in the moment and be creative, while at the same time doing practical/ physical work. I would love to share this experience with you.

    I'm 36 years old, born in The Netherlands but always loved the adventure and traveling. As an introvert I also love my 'me-time' :) quite evenings in front of the fireplace or watching a movie, reading a book.

    As the area is beautiful with the valleys and hills it's a really good time to connect with nature again. The little project can help you to develop new skills related to building. I'm more than happy to share my own experience about living an authentic live and the journey I had to walk to get here.

    - Handyman(woman) needed for renovating the house and shed. (Carpenters, plumbers, electrician or anyone good with their hands )
    02/01/2022 having a Winterstop so need to wait untill springtime to go further with my project. It's too cold as the heatingsystem is not there yet 😊
    27/9/2021 with help from a Workaway'er and friends we broke down the walls in the house and put big beams into the ceiling. Further help would be to fix the walls, even the floor downstairs and put in a Laminat, build a small new wall as a entrance hall, upstairs I'm finishing the walls so soon can start painting.

    The house will be shared with me most of the time, although I will not always be there. Food will be available (vegetarian, feel free to get meat if you want) and sometimes we can eat together or you can make for yourself. All easygoing :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It's a cute little village. The nature is beautiful and perfect for nice walks, swimming in the river, kayakking. The surrounding area is more touristic in the summer, many nice old villages are around. There is a bus in the village that connects with the surrounding villages. A small trainstation is about a 15min drive where I could pick you up if necessary.
