Hi there, welcome on our page.
We are a family of 6, including 2 children and 2 cats. At this time of writing we are busy with the project called our house. We are expanding and modernizing our house with the goal to make the house well insulated, sustainable and with minimum energy needed for living. We live in a small place called Epe, located in the centre of the Netherlands, close to a number of interesting cities.
So we bought an old farmhouse 3 years ago, the house is over 100 years old! And we are gradually renovating and expanding the house. We have done a lot in the last 3 years, rearranged the layout, new roof, new windows, floor insulation & floor heating, new expansion for the kitchen.
As a plant enthusiast we also have a lovely garden that has a variety of edible plants.
We are a young couple that love to just do it yourself and we love teaching our ways to other people and learning from each other!
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Located in the Netherlands in the beautiful area called "the Veluwe" the village Epe is very atractive among tourists. Beautiful landscapes, historic features, nearby castle and more. Great for walking, cycling or touring!
Learn more about wildlife, nature and dutch culture!
For now we are busy with insulating the house and other projects to make it winterproof.
Looking for people who have some experience with help around the house, like painting, insulation, woodwork, drywalls and if you like the gardening.
You can learn more about sustainable building and renovating a house.
There is a place for maximum 2 people in a tent inside the house, nevermind the weather this tent is always dry!
We eat together in the evening and during the day if possible.
With your time off you could enjoy the beautiful nature Epe has to offer. Go swimming, cycling, walking in the area of visit other cities and attractions nearby. Like Dolfinarium (30 min by car) Apenheul (20 min by car).
