We are Carla and Hanso plus our Kids Mathilda, Jona Loki and new Baby Lola Lotte plus our friend Julius.
We started to reconstruct our charming old house in February 2020 an since summer 2021 we live there. As long as the house is not ready we live minimalistic in a tiny house in the garden.
Hanso is a carpenter and I am an architect so we decided to do the planing and the work at the building lot almost completely without companys. We try to work with natural materials like wood and clay and reconstruct the most environmental friendly we can.
The house has a big garden wich needs some treatment and even though the neighborhood belongs to a small city it´s in a more village style area surrounded by nature and some canals. There is a lake reachable in 15 to 20 minutes by bike.

Help around the house
We like to share our knowledge as an architect and carpenter. You can learn a little bit about that beside getting to know our kids :)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The work we have takes place inside and outside the house and is very manifold.
Focus is on:
preparing family meals/cooking
bring/pick up kids to/from kindergarden/school
Can be also smaller tasks in:
When the kids are at the house the big ones can most of the time play on their own but of cause they are also happy to have new playfellows. For the little one right now it is very important to have some help! Basicly that means carrying her or driving her around in the stroller so we can concentrate on work ;)
Veggi food and accommodation!!!
It’s possible to sleep in your tent all summer or in our small caravan from march or april until october or november (depending on the weather). For your tent we provide air beds and sleeping bags if needed. The small caravan has a double bed inside. We have a full equipped kitchen and do the foodshopping for the group. It would be nice if our Workaway likes to cook for lunch. We usually have simple breakfast and dinner. The workaway can eat with us or separate. We have a warm water shower in our caravan/tiny house and an ecological compost toilet in the construction hall.
We provide bikes for you for being flexible.
