We are a German family, living in NZ since 16 years, with 3 children, who have left home and are at university or working. We have have 2 dogs, and started building an off grid house in Kerikeri in the Far North, on a 15 acre plot that we replant in fruit and native bush. Up North we have a beautifully renovated Guest caravan (yellow picture) that will be available for one person or a couple to stay in. We also have a sheltered area with a tent. As we are in the early phase of building, as bathroom facilities we can offer a hot outdoor shower,and a compost toilet, both providing privacy.
We like help in all aspects of building, fencing and gardening. We are very happy to teach skills as required and usually work alongside our helpers.
We offer shared meals, camp fires and good company:) At this stage we could host 2 people max.
We have space for a helper available now.
DIY and building projects
Learning English , understanding off grid living , and seeing how a family with a German background lives in NZ:)
Building the deck and floor level of the house, cutting gorse, planting, fencing if more is needed. But mainly help with basic building right now.
Up North either in the cute guest caravan, or in a tent on a sheltered platform:) it will change when we are getting further in our building stages.
