  • Description


    Hi, i m Daniel. 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 up to 4 places to stay at the same time for next year May until September 2020:
    I m renovating an old house with a big barn. The garden is quit big, too. So i would like to build a garden house and have some animals like chickens and a goat. I got 4 chickens now. I would like to grow vegetables..
    Since i am an architect i want to build quite a special garden house with a special shape. And also want to use natural materials like wood, earth/clay and strawbales!
    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.
    At the moment i m finish the upstairs of the house with clay rendering. So who wants to know how this works has a good opportunity now. To stay here with a campervan is no problem.

    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.
