  • Description


    Hi, i m Daniel. Right now (29.8.22) At the moment i need to finish the entrance und part of the kitchen. Then there is the tinyhouse, that you might have seen on the picture. It is not finished yet. And there is a bit of gardenwork.

    I got quite a lot of volunteer and farming experiences. Especially in Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia.

    Now i got my own project and i want to offer 2 places to stay.
    I m renovating an old house with a big barn. The garden is quit big, too. There is a little bit of building and some gardenwork to do.
    Since i am an architect i could teach some skills. I like to build with clay and straw.
    In the barn i like to do some art. Paintings and wood work. I also would like to collect some information about the castles around here. The castles here are quite special. I heard that Mr. Tolkien (author of Lord of the Rings) got inspired by that!
    It s also nice to go on a kanu tour not far from here at a smaller river.
    I also should tell you that i m about 90 % vegetarian. I would have a problem with cheap meat from the discounter supermarket!
    To stay here with a campervan is no problem.

    ***I could also give some refugees from the Ukraine a place to stay***

    build with natural materials like wood, earth/clay and straw
    If you would like to help a bit, you can also take a walk to some castles at the river Rhein. The house is in a small village that is close to the river Rhein. There are 2 castles near by. There are smaller rivers where you can go on a Kanu. You can check in the Internet: Loreley, romantic Rhein, ... I think its quite nice.
