    Hi to everyone out there on the World Wide Web!

    My name is Jutta, I'm originally from Switzerland, but been living here in New Mexico since 1986. I now live here by myself plus my 3 dogs and chickens. With my husband recently separated, I need some help in various arias. My daughter is living in Switzerland right now.
    I truly enjoy working and improving our environment with recycling and reusing what we have.

    In 1986 we build a alternative passive Solar house from scratch, and it's not a square box, north side has 3 circles with different dimensions, mostly out of Adobe. I live on the bottom of a 12'000 foot mountain, elevation here is 7000 feet (2000m) about 30 minutes east of Albuquerque.

    I love art, music, being creative, alternative Architecture, Interior Design, organic gardening, Active/passive Solar energy, recycling, re-using, simple, mindful, harmonies living. Living kind of ''outside the box''.

    I'm used to, and enjoy living with other people. I am looking for energetic, positive, honest, communicative people, that can contribute to my live (and visa versa) learning from each other. At the moment I am looking for someone (if possible, but not necessary) with basic plumbing, electric and construction experience. Construction, handyman type help, CAR knowledge, Garden maintenance, landscaping, helping with dinner preparation, wood splitting/cutting, and maybe light housecleaning would be on top of the list. At the Moment I need help to build a dog prove fence and potentially remodel my old bathroom (Including constructing new bathroom closets and bedroom floor.

    I love color, and being creative when building. Input always welcome.

    In the future, we, my daughter and I, are hoping to start building another house, (hopefully it will end to be an Earth house) and we will be needing a lot of help. We are still in the planning stages, could use help with design, ideas and drawings, and later construction.

    I have a good sized guest room and bathroom for you.

    It is very important for me to find a good match. I do not want flaky, unreliable, lazy, dishonest people! No drifters and mentally unstable people. No other then social, once in awhile drinking of liquor. Please no drugs either. Would prefer long term, 1- 3 month, trial base a week or so, to see how well we live and match together.

    The philosophy of this ''workaway'' for me is, it being a learning experience, to share my life and visa versa. Harmony and good communication skills are very important to me. No drama please. Unfortunately, last year we have had Some people here, that were more interested to browse on social media and be on their cell phone most of the day, so, if that's very important to you, to have your own agenda, this may not be the right place for you, (I will boot someone that cannot do without) I prefer people, that still have the ability to verbally talk and share your life with me while you are here. At the moment, I’m a smoker.

    If you are flexible and can go with the flow, you fit in just fine!

    PS. Very important: at the moment this is a safe, virus free home, I’ve been self isolating since I’m high risk, at the moment I only go get fresh food. If you are on the same page, yeah!

    You do need a car for just about most of this!
    To get here, you need a car, I’m willing to pick you up in Albuquerque, but once you are here, no public transportation. I do go to town every so often, and you can catch a ride.
