We are repairing an old log house about 10 km from the city of Turku and 300 m from the sea in a peacuful garden setting. We would need help in repairing: right now there is going on some pretapistry, carpentry and plumbering work with all cleaning that comes with that. Or if you like working in the garden there is a wild garden with old apple trees etc. waiting for a caring hand...

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children. We have not yet moved to the house, but come to repair it for about 2 days a week and some of our friends may be helping there, too. The conditions in the house are still very basic: there is electrisity and stove in the house and 5 rooms so one of them will be in a livable condition. But there is no running water or plumbing right now so we are cleaning the water with a purificater from a well and using a composting bucket... Garden is great, if you like that.

So if you are interested in that kind of work, and enjoying the summer in a garden setting near a lively old city and sea we can wellcome 1-2 persons to live and work in our house. We can't provide you with the food since we don't stay there, so for the stay we expect 16 hours of work in a week and a two week commitment. There is a great archipelago opening right from Turku so if you like it's easy to reach by ferries with a bicycle...
