  • Description


    We are 2 dads and a babyboy. During the day Alane works in a eco-restaurant in Brussels, I am a teacher (Dutch) and work with illiterate adults who are new to this country in Sint-Niklaas. We have 3 dogs (2 French bulldogs and 1 Newfoundlander) and a large garden with chickens. In our free time our baby (4months old) has all our attention... But we also love going out and we enjoy staying at home watching Netflix, knitting or working in the garden just as much... We just finished rebuilding our house and are looking for someone who can help us with painting te walls.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    By working with immigrants, I am used to think and learn about culture and cultures. My husband grew up in Ivory Coast and lived in Spain for 10years. We speak Dutch, French, Spanish and English. We're gay (married for 10years), raising a babyboy. We live near Brussels and Ghent and we know a lot of both cities history and its interesting places. The small village we live in is very quit and rural.

    We're looking for someone who has a lot of experience with painting and wallpaper and works clean. We just finished rebuilding our house and the plasterboard ceiling needs a layer of fiberglass wallpaper and paint. All our walls need a layer of paint as well... The whole project will take a week.

    We have a big house, with a large garden. You'll have your own bedroom with a large bed. The living room (wi-fi, television) and bathroom (shower and bath) are common. Every evening I prepare a homemade meal (I'm a rather a good cook).

    We live near Aalst (3km), wich is known for its annual Carnival. Brussels and Ghent are both a 20minute drive by car. There is a trainstation in our street who lead directly to Brussels (also 20 mintues). Our little village is very rural with lots of small roads thoughout the fields to be discovered by foot.
