we are offering a unique ongoing opportunity for mature skilled helpers to live for free in a beautiful holiday home in the famous west coast surfing town of Raglan. We are looking for a couple or single person to live in and do maintenance on the house. The work will consist of mainly restoring window/ door frames by sanding back timberwork and oiling/ sealing. Experience with timberwork and or painting is a bonus. Som gardening, painting and basic carpentry if you have the skills will also be included. We are a sustainable interior designer and permaculture designer, however outside fo Jan we don't live in the house so it would be empty for you. We have been hosting helpers for 5 years in our home in Melbourne. You can visit our listing in the above links to see reviews. We are only looking for helpers with practical carpentry, building, painting or landscaping experience. You must have your own transport- ideally a sleep-out van as the house is a working holiday rental and is likely to be booked out on weekends which means you would need to travel locally or stay at the local campground on when this happened. Some of your own tools and work-boots is a bonus. The deal is without food- but for accommodation, internet, power gas etc. the hours would be 10 per week. The house is gorgeous, views everywhere, warm and cosy, lots of outdoor decking. You can check out its book bach listing in the attached link. Raglan is highly sought after holiday destination due to its world famous surf break, eco-minded community, music scene and gorgeous natural environment. We are looking for helpers starting last two weeks of January 2017 and to stay on up to six months- all negotiable. Please get in contact if you are interested in this opportunity,
Kind regards,
Megan and Tao
