5 years ago we were abroad in Ireland as workawayers with 3 lovely families.
Now its time to turn the table :-) We got married, bought an old farmhouse, adopt a dog and two cats, got a baby in 2019 and expecting another one in 2021 <3
Together with Uli's parents, who have 3 big dogs, we got this 300 years old farmhouse in a rural area in Thuringia surrounded by gentle hills.
Two appartements are already renovated, at least one more is to go. There ist also a huge garden and some stables that request our atention (and work).
Main tasks are organizing, get rid of old stuff, set up a stonewall, restaurating old doors, painting old bims ... You should be ready to use your hands ;-)
We, this is Chris (33), Uli (32) and little Oskar (2) live in one appartement. Our workawayers stay in our appartement in their one room, kitchen and bathroom is shared. The grown ups have fulltime jobs during the week and can work on the farmhouse mainly on weekends. During the week its quite busy with getting up, having breakfast, bringing Oskar to the Kindergarten, strat working, having a quick lunch, keep on working, picking up Oskar fron the Kindergarten and enjoying the afternoon and evening as family as much as possible, but there are always many tasky to do on the house.
On the weekends we shifting our time to get our new flat in the house ready.
Ulis parents, Peter (63) and Sabine (62), live in the other appartement with their 3 big dogs (Leonbergers).
We are an open minded family, love to have people around working and chilling together. On the weekends it's not uncommon that friends or family members visit us and lend us a helping hand at the farmhouse.
