Do you want to take the lead in turning a barn into a tiny house?


The Exchange

Our barn is really cute. It's spacious too, has solid insulation and even a heating system. What it doesn't have is a sustainable bathroom option, a kitchen and enough light. Also, the shingles need to be redone. Our barn has been a home to many guests. It is really charming, but super simple at the moment. With your help it could become a proper tiny home, a place where people can enjoy long stays. If you are an architect at heart, please come.

Program Details

We hope that you'll see the potential of our barn. Maybe you have always dreamed about turning a place into a tiny house. Maybe you have build or renovated a tiny house before? Do you know a little bit about plumbing, adding shingles or sealing a window? Your ideas are appreciated. I'll happily cook for you during the daytime, you're invited to stay in the barn and I'm more than happy to write a suitable certificate. :-)


Activities & Shift

For four to five hours a day you will be
- making plans for the tiny house to have water supply
- fix the shingles of the house
- fix little leaks
- buy supplies with me
- build a little cabin for a toilet area
- help renovate the tiny house


Rules

I'll be happy to spend time with you and do renovations together (as long as you can tell me what needs to be done, I'm not an expert unfortunately). In the evenings I'll be spending time with the family. You can use our kitchen during the daytime, but not after 4 pm. But hey: Maybe we'll have a bit of a kitchen in the tiny house, shortly after you arrive.
