Please read the text from 2016 (below) to get an impression of the project. And please note the following update:
In MAy and june 2018 we are taking care of an old timberlog barn! You are welcome to join!
:::::::


A 300-year old timberhouse in good condition is threatened to be destroyed. We have started preperations to move it to another place to rescue this nice culutural heritage building.
I am a building engineer specialized in old buildings. I want to restore this house, which I do in my spare time and holidays for the sake of the house.
Working with this house is fun because you learn so much about how they built wooden houses in former times. And of course it is hard work.
This 'work away' is for people who want to get to know timber houses „from the inside“, who are interested in wood works.
No experience is necessary but of course the help craves a bit body power, and it is really helpful if you have had a hammer in your hands before and are not afraid of going onto a ladder!
For people who want to become or are carpenters, students of engineering or other crafts it is possible to have an internship here and get a evaluation in the end.

Helping is in exchange for food, accomodation and all the things you wil learn.

You need to have a personal accident insurance! Minimum age is 18.
