  • Descripción


    Between Amsterdam and Utrecht we have built a new sustainable house, a so called passive house. We are Roelien (1962, pharmacist) and Cock (1960, ecologist). We travel quite a lot. We are slow-builders.
    In 2017 we realized the concrete things, like the fundation, the cellar and the concrete floor. A lot of work was placing the big amount of insulation. In 2018 we have build the wooden upperpart. And in 2019 we have done the inside with a hugh amount of loam/clay. Biobased natural materials. Heavy stuff, but very nice and satisfying. In 2020 - corona time - we have done without the help of WAW-ers (snif) the floor heating and the clay finishing. Since summer 2021 we are living in the new house. 2022 is the year that we dismantle the old house, restore the garden and hopefully we can receive new workawayers!
    Allready more then 40 workawayers have helped us. Are you the next one?

    With workawayers we want to share our experiences with life, with travelling and so on. For us the workawayer is a part of the family. And of course together with workawayers we realise a fantastic new sustainable house. Hopefully the workawayers realise at least one nearly energy zero house at home!
    We can only accommodate non-smokers.

  • Ayuda


    In 2022 we need help in and around the house: organising and cleaning. And for dismantling the old house: removing the installations, wooden floor and so on. And we want to do maintenance on our campingcar: an old fire truck. Removing rust, painting.
