In my summer house, help is most needed from the the 28th of July till the end of September. The summerhouse is located at the northside of Amsterdam in a beautiful area called waterland and there is a good connection with public transport that brings you into the center of amsterdam in about 20min. With a bicycle it is approx the same. The house is 28m2 and has all amenities, shower, kitchen and sleeping for 1 person or a couple. The garden is approx 400m2

The summerhouse has become a bit too much to keep up myself since I am traveling and working a lot and there is some work too be done, keeping up the garden and doing work inside the house. For people interested in tiny houses and permaculture this is a great place to stay

Therefore I am looking for a handy person or preferably a couple that have experience with and enjoy gardening, garden design and home improvement on a tiny house. Jobs to be done are for: pruning, mowing, cleaning up weeds and branches, planting and garden design and improvement such as making herb gardens, plant vegetable making borders or other fun .

Also the house on the inside and outside needs cleaning, some light paintwork, fizing cabinets,cleaning and other handyman jobs, if there is also a handy person that has some experience with plumbing that would be great. For some saturdays there is a communal work for two hours helping the park stay beautiful doing light gardenwork.

You will have the house all to yourself and i will come by sometimes to discuss the work that needs the be done. Hours are variable and flexible to be done as long as the work gets done but i think an average of 2 or 3 hours a day is reasonable. In exchange you get to live for free in the house,including the gas and electricity, when you arrive I stock the fridge with some food but after that you are on your own ;-). There is no wifi but I have a dongel where you can add money to have wifi. No tv either.

From helpers I like to receive a profile with a photo of yourself.Note: Because of the art of work, you must be physically and mentally healthy, handy and not afraid to get your hands dirty. The house is part of a communal park with other gardeners, so please no parties or unsocial behavior.

I have a reference from people from France that lived in the summerhouse before and had a great stay there.

Looking forward to hear from you! You can come stay asap
