Carpenters and handy strong people wanted. We have recently acquired our 95 acre property in the beautiful Huon Valley and will build a home, but first there are a million things to do. About 80 acres of Australian bush with lots of furry critturs, and exciting birdlife, and close to the Hartz Mountain National Park. We would love to host you here in the Huon Valley in exchange for labour and have many jobs that need to be done that would suit a range of skills.

A plumber and a carpenter would be the handiest people initially.Having said that, there are jobs for all people who are strong or handy. We have a shed and big dam, and some fencing. That's about it. A denuded gully that wants re-vegetating and more jobs for carpenters than you can poke a stick at. We are only just getting on top of the weed control, and starting work on re-vegetation in some degraded areas. Fencing needs doing too, and setting up the vegie garden.
We can share our rented house in Hobart and head for the farm each day, or there is a tent set up in the shed with cooking facilities. First job has to be putting some guttering on the shed and running some pipe into the rain water tank. Next is making the shed a little more live-able. We'd love some shelving in the shed, a greenhouse, a gorgeous outdoor loo, a pontoon into the dam, a cordwood woodshed...and...the list is really long and endless but if you're strong or handy we'd have something for you to do!!!! Exchange labour for accommodation, or accommodation and meals. There is no power on the block but we have some good cordless tools and would love to have you stay. This is a great region which is why we have chosen to live here of all the places in the world. We hope you can help us out.
