    Hi there!

    My husband and I both work in theatre. In may 2015 we bought on old little school in the middle of National Parc 'De Biesbosch.' We live here with our four year old son ‘Bink’ and our daughter who is almost two years old, ‘Ella Fe’.
    In a part of the house we have a little, cosy home (this was already here when we arrived). The other part is almost ready to be our studio.

    In the end we hope to have a healthy ecological house with an area for yoga/workshops/rehearsing, a guest stay and a garden full of food.

    But now (september 2018) we can use your help!
    We’re searching for two people who can work independently. We’re so buisy taking care of the kids, working and householding that a few projects that needs to be done before winter arrives, needs to be finished.

    We always take good care of our guests. We serve good, healty food. We’re flexible and easy going.

    Hope to hear from you!
