LESS THAN 1 WEEK TO GO!!! Helpers needed...:

Our background is international (CH-IE-NZ-IL); we have hosted international students, exchange students, friends, family and friends of friends of friends from around the world. Our house has 5 bedrooms, and also plenty of space in the garden to put up a tent - in warm weather only!

I am packing up, and need lots of help
The kitchen project (see below) is being put on hold until May
But REALLY need some gardening and packing help!

Life is about to change; I am downsizing from our 5-bedroom house to a... Container Home! Still in the design process, I do need some help with a kitchen which only has the bones and the doors. The most important attribute that I am looking for in a Helper is one with some (a lot would be perfect!) woodworking and other building experience.

I also would like to start a blog to record my journey and hopefully help others who are planning a similar lifestyle change, or would like to build a container home/tiny home for extra space. So I would also be looking at someone with excellent skills with blog design etc - I'm afraid I'm behind the times when it comes to technology!

And of course, I would love help in the garden - I have had lovely helpers who have done a tremendous job, but there is still lots to do! I would love help with weeding especially, as well as uprooting bulbs to prepare them for the move to their new home - Hawkes Bay.

It is important that our helper(s) is someone who has experience and can work independently.

Yaniv is 21 years old, he's a pretty balanced young person, loves hockey - goalie (played for his school and has represented Waikato), did Karaté for 7 years. Loves reading, writing stories, drawing, cooking, discussing ideas with people, plays the bass guitar and double bass (loves 80s music), has a great sense of humour but is also quiet and serious and very respectful. However, after sailing the Atlantic, and travelling in Europe, where he spent big chunks of time in Italy and in Albania, he is home for 3 months before heading back to Europe in search of more adventures.

I finished my BA in 2015 (English, French, Linguistics), and started my Masters (Teaching & Learning) in 2016 which I will complete in 2018. The reason I need someone experienced and independent (who can follow directions!) is because my studies take up most of my time.

I have been involved with Creative Fibre (spinning, knitting, dyeing, felting, weaving, crochet...) for 7 years, but had to put it aside because of a heavy university workload. However, I unwind by playing with fibre, in my studio (my garage, once upon a time).

Our house is central to Hamilton City, via car or bus, and a short walk to the shops and the river. We enjoy our meals, which are more often than not accompanied by lively conversations! If you are looking for a comfortable home, great meals and a caring family, look no further!

I really really look forward to hearing from you soon!

PS: Smoking is very much frowned upon anywhere in or around the property (health reasons...)
