We are a Up-cycling community, made up of Kim 28, Torsten 32, Manon 22, and Pieter 11 Months old. We are living at the border of the Ruhrgebiet in Duisburg. The Rhein, out in the countryside is 1 km away and only 300m walk to the city center. We like to live as a Community and are looking for others to bring their influence too.

Culture exchange is one of our reasons for hosting on Helpx. With our Volunteers we like to go to Flee markets and other cultural activities. A major goal of our shared flat it is to work against the prevailing disposable culture in Germany.
With the motto from old to new, we love making tours of the city, looking for old furniture to reclaim and offer new life in our house.

We bought the house 2 years ago with a garden. Our main activities are renovating, creative decoration and interior design and gardening. It is important for us is to integrate our Helpers, like you, into our community. In the 300 m2 house you will have space for your own and rooms, like our kitchen, where we cook together.We need help with building, renovation, painting and decorating, gardening, cooking and various jobs in the house and want helpers to give help wherever they feel most comfortable and where their skills lie.

One of the main aims for us in 2017 is to creative a beautiful and functional garden. We dream to have a conservatory, summer kitchen, treehouse and vegetable garden.

We hope that every helper will bring their own unique flavor and talents to the house to make it ever more colourful place to be.
The house is over one hundred years old and we try to retain much of its old character. You will have your own room, and access to a shared kitchen, bathroom and living room.

Duisburg lies in a great position to take excursions to other cities. We are situated just 1 hour from Colon, and 4 hours bus ride to Paris and Amsterdam. We also have a bicycle you can ride and may be able to take you out for local trips in our car when we have time.

he Ruhr region is an interesting mix of beautiful wild spaces of forests, rivers and lakes with also metropolitan city culture and industry in Duisburg, and a melting pot of cultures with large Turkish, Italian, Russian and Spanish communities. Its multicultural 5 million inhabitants makes for a very colourful and diverse experience with many unique cultural activities on offer.

In the region you can discover exotic restaurants, cultural spaces, markets such as the middle age market and many festivals such as Carnival, Park to Shine, CSD and Japanese day.
