Handyperson/carpenter/builder/gardener/dog-walker needed.
We would welcome someone to assist with looking after our family of four dogs (2 older dogs and 2 puppies) and helping with various building, maintenance and repair projects around our house, outbuildings and garden.
There are 4 of us (Noel a librarian, Louise a teacher, Jan (22) and Flavia (19) but not all of us are home all the time) + dogs and some chickens and ducks and snakes. We all live in a scenic, very rural area of Surrey next to several farms and stables. London is 80 kms away.
Our house is a cottage with a large garden. The nearest village is about 2km away. Work is needed for about six hours daily, five days a week. Paid overtime is possible. As we all work/study full-time, the person should be comfortable with being here on their own. This is a main reason for us looking for a helpxer, as our dogs enjoy the company and walks. The ideal person should be relaxed, friendly and outgoing. Apart from dog care, the main work is renovating a garage and our cottage, so experience with general carpentry, concreting and bricklaying is needed. In exchange we offer food, accommodation in a studio in the garden and maybe use of a car if you're staying longer. There is Wi-Fi, computers and TV. The locality is brilliant for running, walking, biking and swimming.
