I have a number of projects on the go at the same time. So the place can look disorganised. I need help completing some are quite simple tasks which have a start and painting the sleep out, staining new decking and re-staining the existing deck.

Other and more complex tasks include constructing an outdoor bathroom. Water tanks and irrigation for the gardens. Light jobs like pruning the olive trees and general garden maintenance.

So the exchanged would be task orientated, 'ie' getting the painting gear out and staining is best done in one go, so it might take a full day. So the following day is a rest and recreation day.

Ideally, five-day stay, be it a single/couple of two people who have a bit of life experience, who aren't afraid to ask questions and can work independently.

ACCOMidation is a separate sleep out in the garden.

TRANsport: Two zone bus ride to CBD. I live in Beachhaven, (see map). Bus stops are 100 meters away. For the more adventurous, there is a commuter ferry ride to the City at the end of the road (about a 15min walk or you can take the bikes on board and go to town).

Speaking and cooking Korean, Spanish, and or French as this is what the house hold are into right now would be a bonus but not essential. And being okay around animals, we have a very friendly outside dog, and an affectionate but sometimes grumpy tomcat. Chickens are on their way! Unfortunately Thomas the cat has recently passed away.
