  • Description


    We are also looking for and offering long term stay 6 months - 1 Year, in this case food has to be covered by yourself and special requirements have to be discussed. It is important that you are able to work and earn your own money for a long term stay. I can help with finding a job, though you have to have a visa that allows you to work here or have a work from home job.

    CURRENT urgent tasks: Need help with creating Mock UP / Galleries / Pictures for my website!
    Sorting out basement with tools, books, other decoration stuff.
    Preparing wood for heating, cleaning all areas and painting walls!

    Welcome to our nature paradise - I am an artist working with creative concepts and photography - please only send a request if your english or german is fluent - you need to be able to communicate with whats app or similar app for easy communication, please make sure you have your own data on your phone or a travel plan so we are able to talk when you leave the house as well.
    we do have internet but it is slow and not always good connection because of the mountains.

    We live in a small old house in midst of magical nature but very close to everything like shopping center, public transportation, bakeries, old village town, museum, movie theather.

    We (my cat Charlie and I ) live in the middle of the old village Näfels with a stunning panorama view to the famous Glarus mountains, forest and valleys.

    We heat the house with wood, we have a cozy stove and small outdoor seating area at the front entrance for workaways and airbnb guest.
    The balkony / terasse is privat.

    I travel a lot, so often the workaway might stay here alone or with other workaways and guests or me if i am around.

    From time to time we might host some artists and art-projects from around the world.


    HOURS 9.30 AM - 3PM or 10AM - 3PM ( with either 60min or 30min lunch break ) it might be able to adapt with workaways shedule...need to be discussed.
    In winter time we need to heat the house with wood, our firestove is big and cozy one also we can cook on that stove, so we do not need the electricity of the other stove.
    Heating times 6 or 7am, Noon, and Evening.

    Daily general tasks, to be done everyday: Feed the cat, spend some time playing and just spend time in the same room with him so he feels the connection and attention. He loves to rest and sleep in the same room, living room or the privat bedroom.
    10.30 am sharp daily cleaning of the rooms, common areas, ect. if needed, to be discussed with me.
    In winter time organize the wood for the firestove as soon as there is only litte left.
    It is a beautiful meditative beginning in the day to start the fire in the stove a beautiful ritual and very cozy as the warmth of the fire is so much more cozy then a regular heating system.

    Special tasks depending on the workaways profession or skills: help with;

    - woodworking, tiling, carpeting, - we need to build a roof over the balkony / terasse and other areas, need to build sliding doors and use tools to build and fix things

    - sew with a sewing mashine - fixing clothes, curtains or work on costumes for photo sessions and performance...

    - logo design, website building with templates, photoshop and most important creating MOCK UP ( online home gallery, photo gallery )

    - marketing , creative writing for website ( english - german )

    - Vlog creation, video art and photography
