    Description

    We - Hagen, Caro (49) are living in the beautiful contryside of Mecklenburg-Strelitz - with our cats, ducks, chicken and sheep. Our two children (19+17) are living almost independently and visit us only on weekands.
    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!
