Warm greetings!

We need a builder or someone keen to be a labourer and is a fast learner!!

We are slowly building our home and developing a permaculture garden. We need lots of help.

We have a piece of paradise in a paddock at Waipu Cove, one and a half hours north of Auckland. It is a small hut with beautiful views of the ocean.

Right now we need help with building our small eco house. We have a wonderful builder who lives on the land. We would like someone or a couple that could stay for at least a month. We would do the usual HELPX deal of free accommodation and food and then pay you for the extra hours you work each day.

This is humble living, the hut has a double bed, 3 chairs, a cooker, a heater and a fridge and outdoor kitchen and composting toilet and a shower.

The beach is right there, we have sea kayaks and learner surfboards. There are beautiful walks and a big cave system 12kms away. Cool cafes and a wee town close by.

Dougy is up on the land 3 - 4 days a week and Lynnemaree tries to come at the weekend!

We are a creative couple in our 50s. I am an arts educator and Dougy restores houses and is a muso. We love to travel, surf and hanging out on our piece of land where we are developing a permaculture garden and place where people can come to share the beautiful nature and ocean there.

Dougy and I are very laid back. We both work so would appreciate a little help. Our helpex travelers seem to become like family! For us the mutual exchange is a win win situation!You could come to our home in Auckland at the weekends?

Look forward to hearing from you
kind wishes Lynnemaree

PS It is email or text is better, and then Dougy can ring you back with the details. Thanks.
