    Description

    We are Carin and Dietsen. And we are building our dreamhouse in the Champagne Ardennen Haute Marne in France. It is a old farm, we bought in 2013 as a holiday house. Thought we could renovate it in a short time by the two of us. But the project is so big and overwhelming that our pair of hands can not do al the ideas we have in our heads. It is a fifteenth century farm with lots of spaces who haven't been used for centuries.we are renovating this spaces to bild two two floor apartements. Whe want to rent them out for travellers and permanent residents. Apart off the appartement we also have a big garden who needs maintenance. So we are looking for people who can give us a hand with the realisation of our dream and way of living.
