  • Description

    Description

    Bianca (designer) and Edword (Interiorbuilder) created a B&B/family hostel in an almost 100 years old schoolbuilding in the North of Holland near the Waddensea (Worldheritage). Our workings days are about designing and building. The weekends are about hosting guests in the B&B.
    In the winter the guesthouse is closed due to maintenance and restoration of the old school. So from october to march we can offer the B&B appartements to the workawayers to help us around!

    Still looking for a workaway place?

    We are looking for people to help us rebuild the horsebarn Roof.
    Don't worry it is not a difficult job: Edword will tell you how to...

    It is a 2mens job so we are still looking for another workawayer...

    We ask you to help us from monday till fridayy
    from 9 to 13 oo hours
    We offer you an appartment with 2 bedrooms (one bedroon for the other workawayer)
    There is a big kitchen to prepare your own food.
    There is an amount per week to fill your fridge
    Twice a week we will eat together (once we cook, the other one you will invite us ;-)

    We are very independant people ourselves so you are on your own but in our house...
    The region is very desolated and quiet, but the people living here are nice and warm of heart.

    The weather will be cold, wet and windy.... (Really Dutch weather)
    The appartement will be warm and comfortable!

    You could stay a few weeks (till the 20th of december) if you still dare/like to come over.

    Greetings Bianca and Edword
