We are a family of 4 (Ivo, Maren, doughter Mia and dog Blue). After traveling many parts of this earth we just bought an old farmhouse in the south-east of Bavaria, pulled it down and started creating a new home. Here is also a lot of work waiting in the garden and our daughter and dog want to be entertaint all the time... Our life here is very basic - internet, warm water and heatabel dry space is limited, but we want to open this place for travelers like we have been for the last decade.
We are just getting started and we have a vision, so come around and help us realizing it!
See you :)

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
we are happy to share all we have learned travelling and we collected quite a lot of knowledge about different handcrafts and "do-it-yourself-experiances". We both work in a circus, training children and beeing artits, so we can offer to teach some tricks and artistic skills too.
We just took down the old farm house and started in March 2020 building our new ecological (dream-)house ...In 2020 we managed with a lot of help from volunteers to build the wooden framework, set up the roof and finished the insulation with straw balls and cover it with clay.
So our mission for 2021 is to go on with the interior, finish clay plaster and electricity, build up inner walls, floors and stairs... For every step we need motivated helpers who are interested in ecological building and sustainable living.
We always need help with the daily chores, like cleaning and cooking together. In general our meals are vegetarian and we try to grow and produce at least parts of every meal by ourselfs... but it is important for us not to be docmatic in our believes (sometimes Pizza is perfect :) )!
And we defenitly need your helping hands to realize the big plan!!
We prefer people who can stay longer than 7 days and have a little experience in construction work, sustainable living and who can help and live quite independently.
We live in a "circuswagen" next to the mainhouse. At the moment we can just offer one good room and additional there is enough space for tents, mobile homes or camper vans.
internet at our place is very limeted, so we dont check mails every day. The next trainstaition is about 15 km away, where we can pick everyone up.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
We have really bad internet connection, enough for us, but maybe not enough if you want to work seriously...
We have been living in busses and wagons for a long time, so all vans welcome!
We have a dog, as long as the other pets get along with her, we are fine to receive animals too.
