We (Karl and Barbara) have some chickens, ducks, goose, two dogs and a large garden and love to start projects to create our own "Place to be".
At the moment we are finishing the stables for the animals, preparing the automatic watering of our garden and plastering a wall.
We both work full-time and in our free time we also prepare our own beer and soaps, we bake our own bread and baguettes.
We are open for 2-3 weeks stays with a further possibility to prolong up to 1 month.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We offer helpers accomodation in our house, so you would live with us and share our every-day-life, which is gardening, cooking and household (we are excellent cooks :-) , especially but not only on austrian dishes, including vegetarian and vegan cuisine and dishes with meat).
We would love if you could cook two or three times a meal which is typical for your country - we love to learn about your culture and your meals.
Apart from that travellers will be part of our projects in our garden with our animals and woodworking. This includes selfsustainment (we try to have our own fruits and vegetables, we eat the eggs and meat of our chickens).
The exact tasks change with the projects we deal with at a given moment, but generally we may expect from you:
- feeding/watering the chickens, ducks and goose
- gardening and work on the fields (including sowing, weeding, harvesting and processing crops)
- building and constructing
- sometimes household-tasks like laundry, cooking, ..

We have two spacious rooms in the first floor. You also have a bath room on your own. You can use a small kitchen on the floor where your room is, and we and our guests share a common kitchen. We provide at least one common meal a day and free access to food and drinks whenever you´re hungry.
Regarding meat in meals, we usually try to eat only our own meat (chicken) or deer, other meat (including ham, salami and that stuff) we just buy once in a while. So be prepared to have more vegetarian dishes than ones with meat! (And don´t worry, also the vegetarian dishes are made to nourish you to be able to do physical work :o)
