  • Description


    We - Hagen, Caro (50) are living in the beautiful contryside of Mecklenburg-Strelitz - with our cats, ducks, chicken and sheep. Our two children (21+19) are living almost independently and visit us only on weekends.
    We own an over 270 year old timber house (the former bailiffs house on a rural baroque manor complex), where is a lot of work to do. We are happy about all kind of help - construction works as well as help with the animals, in the garden and household.
    All open minded people are welcome!

    There's a lot of work for building and preserving the house - if you like puzzeling cobblestones or bricklaying or work with loam - as well as help in the garden and household:
    preparing firewood, brewing beer, making hay, guarding our chickens and ducks, care for the sheep... and so on
    - or playing music, talking...
