we are currently trying to establish our cooperation project in Gutenstein - a tiny village placed in an Austrian dale surrounded by beautiful forests, mountains and smaller towns. Since we are working on many construction sides we could need one or two helping hands every now and than.
Ideally you would work half-time depending on your skills and difficulty of work. We will provide lunch and accommodation but we have a big kitchen that offers every equipment for cooking, backing and so on.
For most work we have to do it would be necessary to use driven tools (saws, screw drivers etc.) or some strength, accordingly if you are all thumbs it might not be the best fit for you ;) On the other hand, if you are skilled and able to work self independent we wouldn`t mind to add a little "allowance" to your stay.
At the end you will have enough free time to visit the surrounding areas or pay a visit to Vienna, cook, chat, play games or do sport with us or just chill in front of the fireplace or in the sauna - and, if brave enough have a cold bath in the nearby creek.
We are looking forward to meet you and share experiences, love and laughter :)
NOTE: According to the current pandemic situation we can only accept you if vaccinated or recovered.

How do we want to live in the future? We are sure, that it is absolutely necessary to create new possibilities for a more sustainable way of living, especially on the countryside where we normally need a lot of space and resources to build our homes. At the same time we believe that many answers to our problems today is in the concept of villages, that create a local circular supply with food, energy and work. With the association we founded we want to support that. If you come and work with us you can learn about our ideas and help to build the foundation of what could be a self sustained village in the future!
We need support in the renovation and interior design of our place which means: demolition, setting up the walls, plastering, laying tiles, laying the floor, repainting, window installation, loam plaster, ...
Room in the house - we bought an old guest house so you can choose which room you like best! They are not new and some of them in remediation but we do have other options and will provide something comfy for you.
Gutenstein is an awesome place surrounded by nature, so you will also find a lot that you can see and do in your spare time. In summer you can go hiking, running, swimming, climbing, do sport and during winter there are even possibilities for skiing or back country skiing ... nature is lovey here! In the evenings we sit together, talk, cook, play and just share time :)
