Short Property Description
Originally from Konstanz /Germany I have moved in 2018 from Sydney to Franklin/Tasmania.I have bought 7 acres of land( which used to be a raspberry orchard,)back in February 2019.
There was nothing on the land apart from a shed and an overgrown dam. 18 months and a lot of effort later, I have establish what I call my basecamp:).
I am connected to the grid, have plenty of rainwater in my tanks, a fireplace which keeps me warm and a well equipped workshop.
I am currently working on my cottage, so anyone with building skills is most appreciated.
Looking after my ever growing garden, my 6 ewes or making firewood for the next winter is always on the todo list:)
Full Property Description
7 acres on a slope overlooking the mighty Huon River.I never have a boring day……..There is always something to do, or to discover…
Organic/Biological methods we use
I am committed to organic gardening.Anyone, who can share their knowledge with me is most welcome.
Alternatively, a carpenter (Zimmerfrau/Zimmermann) could give me a hand building my cottage on the hill:)
Having worked for over 20 years on major motion pictures as a set builder there will be no shortage of stories to entertain you…….
If you want to chip in, I think anytime between the end of September and the end of May is ideal. Best time to enjoy the beautiful Spring and Summer………
Also, if you have a problem with composting toilets and an outdoor shower, my place is not for you:)On the upside, reception with the Telstra network is excellent.
