  • Description


    we are a small family (two adults and two children (2 and 4 years old)) and bought in 2021 an old and beautiful half-timbered house in the "Lüneburger Heide" near lüneburg and not so far from Hamburg. We already renovated a lot but there is still quite a bit more to do... :-) we like to meet new people and like to have good mood. If you like to come to visit and help us in the construction or in the garden, we are very happy if you contact us.

    Sunny regards
    David & Magdalena

  • Help


    You could help us with the renovation of our half-timbered house of the year 1896. We try to use old technics and natural materials like clay and wood wool and follow the principe of 'learning by doing' :-) We have a big garden where you could help us building a garden shed or a glasshouse. We also need to renew our drainage system. You could also play with our two little girls or help with the household.
    We enjoy every kind of help. Even though you don't have a lot of experiences we would be happy to meet you.
