  • Description

    Description

    Having a big, friendly, open house with separate guest room and own bath. The kids are grown up by now but check in from time to time.
    It is a quiet living area but only 10min on the bicycle from Friedrichshain/Kreuzberg humming life away.
    So, you can pile out in your free time and explore the greats of Berlin.
    I do have a schedule on working days you'll have to align to, please.
    Most time I work from my house where I have some extra office space in the basement next to the guest room.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a musician as well and got some guitars, bass, cajon, piano in my house. So we can make some music together or show each other one or the other thing on instruments.
    If you want to improve your german or english with me - fine.
    If you can teach me some spanish and Salsa Cubana - great !

    I do have kind of a big garden where I can use some good helping hands.
    There is always stuff to do in the garden and in the house or around the house. You should not be afraid of getting your hands dirty ;o) !

    You should have these skills:

    *️️️ Building :
    - The old garden house needs some fixing to make it inhabitable again. Roof, some plumbing, cleaning, woodwork, painting, etc.
    - Design and weld+mount a stainless steel reeling for the entrance stairs

    You should have these skills (optional):

    *️️️ Gardening:
    - Some small stuff to do (getting rid of weed, lawn mowing).
    - Convert some Euro Palettes into garden furniture.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a bus stop in front of the house and just 10mins walking distance to Berlin-Karlshorst S-Bahn station.
    If you like running - there are woods close by for practice.
    A lake to go for a swim is approx. 10mins on the bicycle away.
    Next beach volleyball place is just around the corner and so is the next supermarket just 4mins walking.

    I do have a strict No drugs and No smoking policy in my house but a good glas of beer or wine is no problem at all ;o).
