Carpentry – Restoration of the roof construction of the oldest part of the manor There is still existing one part of the manor which walls remain from the previous baroque building. The current roof construction and the roofing are dating back only to the early 20th century, but unfortunately the construction was underdesigned so that it got broken in the meantime. Last year volunteers removed already the roofing and the old roof construction. Under the professional guidance of a carpenter the participants of the Building Weeks 2018 will continue these works, in particular construct a new roof construction and reroof the building. Because it will be sometimes not possible that the whole group will work on the roof at the same time the other volunteers will carry out in these times works on the ground and in the garden as well as small renovation works in the manor.
shared rooms with beds, warm shower and toilets, no washing machines available, The meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that everybody will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if you could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.
Gantikow Manor is situated 100 kilometres north of Berlin. The house is surrounded by a nice village with a medieval church and a lake. The manor is a picturing example of a former baroque building, changed in the late 19th century in neo-baroque style. Over centuries, the houses belonged to the Earls von Platen, which sold it in 1872 to a civil family which started soon, in 1877, with the modernisation of the house and kept it in their ownership till 1945. After World War II, the house was first used as a refugee shelter and after that the community used the house as a village centre, hosting the community office, the local store, the school, the kindergarten, the doctor's room, the kitchen of the agricultural cooperative and several apartments. With its many rooms the large building is perfect to be used as a Youth Accommodation House. The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden with old trees which reached originally up to the lake. Around the Manor house in Gantikow, in the beautiful garden, with its old trees, there is much space for outside activities and leisure time. A small lake is situated nearby the old building, where it is possible to go swimming. And also the surrounding area with its many lakes and unique small towns invites for trips.
