Hello! I live in a big wooden cabin over-looking a lake, surrounded by nature and singing birds!
The land is private, isolated, (Nearest shops 7km), beautiful & peaceful with 2 acres of garden and woodland, with views.
If you like relaxing in nature?
I have built the cabin as a home, with a separate acupuncture clinic. I work from home, and treat patients 3 to 4 days per week.
I have already planted 1000 trees! I have 3 sheep, 3 ducks, 1 cat, and 2 kilo carp in the lake.
I also have my 9 yr old daughter here on Wednesdays and weekends.
I have also built an outside spa with jacuzzi, solar hot/cold shower, wood-fired sauna, and terrace - in Japanese style garden.
Projects outside include land-clearing (strimming), clearing around the lake, moving and stacking firewood, fencing, weeding, general gardening.
Help with cooking, cleaning, and general domestics could be good during busy months.
I would like to build an outside dry compost toilet; bbq; fishing pontoon/jetty.
Main project for 2021 is to build a new cabin on the land with terrace. I would also like to re-cover the roof of the house with new metal roof sheets, and re-roof a small shed.
I have a single bedroom available inside the house, or a large independent caravan outside with a king-size bed suitable for a couple.
It would be good to meet via Skype or Whatsap for a quick chat, before confirming any dates.
