Last Updated: May 7, 2019

Ideally we are looking for a couple or two friends who are happy to share a bed, but we will also welcome an individual if they are the right fit.

Helpers are needed - 4 hours per day, with 1 day free for each 5 days worked. We are also happy for you to configure your hours to allow extra days off if you'd rather.

We are finishing off the house which we are renovating and need urgent help with a variety of tasks, which include but are not limited to: painting, filling holes, laying floors, constructing a shed, cleaning up after the construction and clearing the yard.
We are also moving house on the 21st of May and need help packing boxes, moving boxes and then cleaning both houses.

We have bought a new house and are renovating it! So we need all kinds of help, from demolition to painting, timber work, general yard work and gardening. Any skills or experience in renovating is an absolute bonus! If you are keen to learn we can teach you what needs to be done.
This house is a 5min drive from where we are currently living, so we will drive you to and from the worksite each day, or you can walk or use your own transport if you’d prefer.
Please be in contact if this is of interest to you.

We start all helpers on a 1 week maximum stay, during this time, longer durations can be discussed or negotiated if we are happy with how things are working out.


WHERE:

We have a small suburban home 25mins from Melbourne City and airport, and walking distance to public transport, local parks and shops. Close to local markets, farmers markets, and the cinema. We have a sizable backyard.

ABOUT US:

We are a young couple, no children, two young dogs. We both work.
We have 2 very friendly and loveable young dogs who spend most of their time inside, absolutely love people and want to be where ever they are. Nelson is a 5year old male and Milly is a 2yr old female pup, both a non-allergenic and non-shedding.

Our meals are primarily organic whole food based. Often comprising of fresh organic produce from our garden. We make our own muesli and kombucha drinks. We are both chefs who enjoy quality food, so our helpers are always very well fed!

OUR HOME:

Our little home is clean and tidy with a bit of an artistic flare. We have quality free WIFI and excellent mobile/cell phone coverage. You will have a private bedroom with a double bed.
We will cook dinners when we are home, and provide food for you to prepare for lunch and breakfast.

Inside areas are non-smoking, smoking outside is fine, using ash tray provided.

THE WORK:

Jeremy is also into building furniture, and often requires help sanding and staining the wood.
There is occasionally a bit of yard, garden and house work for helpers who are keen to pitch in.
Ideally we are looking for a couple or two friends who are happy to share a bed, but we will also welcome an individual if they are the right fit.

Helpers are needed - 4-5 hours per day, with a day free for each 5 days worked. We are also happy for you to configure your hours to allow extra days off if you'd rather, eg. work 9hours 1 day for 1 extra day off.
