We, Irmi and Hermann, are a couple in the years when children left home and go their own ways. Irmi is a teacher in primary school and Hermann has his own company in rising special plants for the roofs. We´re living with our cat in an old farmhouse in a little village on the mountain range „Schwäbische Alb“ (730 m) near a big biosphere reserve. Next town in the valley is Bad Urach, the distance to Reutlingen is about 30 km, to Stuttgart 50 km (Southern Germany). Same as our daughter and our two sons we like travelling all over the world. Even in Hengen, our little village, we have to do with Poles, Bosnians, Syrians, Africans... At home we like to spend our time together with our kids, grandson and friends. By the way music and gardening are central hobbies.

Currently we´re organizing our big garden. We want to build a shed of old wooden beams so as benches. For that we can need a helping skilled hand with ideas, energy and experience in using a motorsaw.
