  • Descrição


    Right now it is just me (and my Great Dane) here… a little overwhelmed with all the small projects, that were supposed to be fun. And should be, but aren’t as much fun doing by myself.

    I originally bought the house for my dad and my daughter to have a place to stay and make a small cafe to serve coffee, sweets, music and storytelling to the high numbers of tourists that come through here in the spring/summer & fall.

    The plan was to make a little oasis with mostly self reliance, eco wellness in the backyard, etc. And to be a leading example in showing the way to cut down on the use of resources by using local resources and grow our own food etc. in a regular home.

    Unfortunately, my dad passed away unexpectedly and my daughter is doing a student exchange in The US. So I miss having life and people at the house. And someone to do projects with.
    Hence this Workaway host profile.

    *People with any construction skills or any basic knowledge of building and renovation projects will be prioritized.

    Right now the projects I am working on or resourcing materials for, include:
    (See some of the projects in process, in the pictures below)

    - Finishing my new kitchen in my main house.

    - Building a front porch on the main house.

    - Building a large gate between the 2 houses.

    - Moving the workshop out of the old greenhouse and into the garage.

    - Changing the roof on the old greenhouse and turning it back into a greenhouse.

    - Painting my little yard behind the house and turning it into a small “Greek” oasis.

    - Collecting materials for building a small cabin, a treehouse and a shelter in the backyard.

    - Collecting materials for building an outdoor kitchen and rain shower in the backyard.

    - Always weeding and tending to my little herb and vegetable garden! (As everything I grow is organic)

    Just to mention a few… ;-)

  • Ajuda


    Come help out in my private home in the most beautiful area of southern Denmark.
    Located in a small town, on a long bridged island, in what we call “The Danish Mediterranean”… Denmarks best kept secret.

    Our small town is close to some of Denmarks best beaches and forests.
    I have bicycles for anyone who comes to stay without a car.
    And busses drive right by my house to connect you to anywhere you would like to go in Denmark.

    My little town has 2 grocery stores, a bakery, a burger joint, a pizzeria, a pharmacy, an Inn and a whole bunch of little private second hand stores, art galleries and local produce stands. All within short walking distance.

    I am inviting anyone who is handy and/or has a specific trade within construction and renovation and/or interest or experience with gardening and growing organic food & herbs.

    Guests and workaways will have private rooms and share kitchens and bathrooms with me and each other.

    Tents and hammocks in the garden are ok as well.
    In time a shelter in the garden, will be an option to stay as well, as some of the current projects here at the house right now, are resourcing materials to build a shelter, a small cabin, a chicken coop and a workshop etc.

    There is a dog in the house (and hopefully chickens soon too).

    Music is always a plus. Musicians are welcome.

    All guests will have access to the food I grow in my organic herb and vegetable garden, in the summertime.
