Our group of people consists of Monique (55) & Matthis (12) living in the farmhouse and Arrad (53), Marleen (36), Iza (17) & Nora (12) living in the former stables.
Next to our homes there's a big barn that we're turning into a place with meeting rooms and B&B units.
Arrad also has a teashop in the centre of Amsterdam. Marleen is a psychiatric nurse.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Travelers can experience the traditional Dutch countryside (flat farm lands), all the while being relatively close to Amsterdam and Utrecht, which is another very nice and beautiful old city in Holland. Just around the corner of our home there are natural reserves that are a paradise for bird watchers and fishermen.
Hello to all Workawayers from around the globe.
We are 3 good friends with 3 teenage kids, a dog, 3 cats and 4 chickens. A year and a half ago we bought a beautiful farm house with a big garden, no farmlands though, and started renovating the old house into 2 new homes. That's all done now, but next to our new homes there is a big barn that we are now turning into a place with meeting rooms and B&B units.
Arrad has a lot of experience in building, but does need help of course. The renovation started some 18 months ago and, thanks to the help of some great Workawayers, is coming to it's end. But there's still a lot of little stuff that needs to be done, like putting up lamps, hanging mirrors, hanging curtains, small paint projects some carpentry projects, some plumbing, lots of cleaning.....
Therefore we're looking for a handy couple (or two friends that are not afraid to share a room) that have experience in construction/renovation that can work with only a little guidance, since Arrad can't always be there.
So to all handy people with experience in renovations, please contact us!
