    you can stay in my garden in a tent (a really big tent) maybe i can ask one of the neighbours if you can use their house when they are not there (then we will fix, paint or clean something for them as well..) I have a cold shower, but we can fix that ; ).
    And there is also a possibility that i just leave the house to you, and give you a little list of jobs.. who knows?

    During the day you can take food from my house. In the evening I can cook for you. Or you can cook if you want. All in deliberation of course.
