  • Description


    Note; work at the moment consists mostly of working in the garden and mostly ordering the wood and tools in the barn. Still got some work on the Tiny house, but don't expect to much of that (unless you are a carpenter ;) ). Also we want to build a fence around the area so the chicken can have more space to enjoy their lives.

    My name is Simon Warta, 34 years old, adventurous Dutchmen who enjoys the freedom of living out of town. I live in an old farmhouse with my housemates Gerdine and Heleen.

    At the farm house I live I am now building a Tiny House/gypsy wagon. This is a great project where I do like to spend my free time on. The project is quite big so that is why I am looking for a helping hand. At the moment I'm busy with the inside and also there needs to be some work on the roof done. There's some electricity jobs, but also not unimportant there's ordering works to do.

    Next to the wagon there are some jobs need/or just fun to do in the garden.

    As a job for myself I am a social worker in psychiatry. Which I will be doing some days in the week, so you need to be someone who can manage your own time a bit.

    Join if you like to have a lot of working freedom, know how to build and use tools for woodwork.

    At night we can make campfires have good conversations about the weather or how to save the world. Or just drink beer or wine.

    We offer a maximum stay of two weeks.

    See you soon!
