We are looking forward to meeting lovely experienced people who will help us renovate this tiny old house. We only want highly experienced, HANDYMAN and PAINTER/PLASTERER etc for renovation work,which may include basic carpentry.DO NOT APPLY IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD RENOVATION STYLE EXPERIENCE. Partners who do not have building experience are welcome as there's always cleaning etc.

Our work is constantly changing, so we need people who are flexible as well as multi-talented! Able to share in a small inner city house. We are unable to provide training.

As the work varies, and isn't routine, we do not welcome people who only have a few days to stay here. The tools we could expect you to be familiar with are circular saws, grinders, drills and to know how to mix and apply mortar and to have a good knowledge of basic carpentry. Do explain what sort of experience you have had.

Please understand that if you do not have building experience and persist in applying, then I will check your profile. If it appears that you do not have building experience, then we will not reply to you and I certainly you will have made a bad impression on me. You waste my time and yours.

In return for your accommodation and daily breakfast and dinner we want the equivalent of 20 hours per week which we expect you to fit around the work that is being done. Gluten-free diets welcome,otherwise we prefer non-fussy eaters

Most helpxers understand that it is normal for Helpxers to generally help in the house too, as you would at home, with such chores as food prep, cooking, washing up, cleaning and to clean the room when you depart ready for the next helpxers.

You should ensure that you have your own travel insurance cover as your stay with us is at your own risk. We cannot accept responsibility for any loss, injury or damage.

This house is fabulously close to the city by walking (30 mins) or public transport (10 mins), including ferries. Nearby are good views of the city as well as great shops, such as Sydney's best chocolate shop,plus good cafes, markets and pubs. Rozelle is one of Sydney's liveliest retail areas.
