Area: North West England, On Pennine HillsMy name is Geoff, I am married and I live with Mary, my wife in the County of Lancashire, in a small town on the Pennine hills, 24km from Manchester, England. We have 3 children, who are grown up and have left home, and 2 Grandchildren. We also have a Dog and a Cat. We live in a 5 bedroom detached house in open country with easy access to Manchester / Leeds. The house has a small vegetable garden where I grow fresh produce in spring / summertime. I have been renovating the house by myself for the last 16 years and I am nearly finished.. Help with this renovation work would be welcome but not at all essential.

There is some shopping & a wave pool/gym within a 20 minute walk . I'm also close to the U.S. border if you want to do a day trip there. I work at the local (harness horse) racetrack, so you will have an opportunity to come to the races & meet some of the trainers & drivers. I have internet . The work can be heavy so you do have to fit !!
Area: QueenslandWe are a mature Australian couple living in a house we have owned for many years, and have just recently renovated. The house was originally an old timber cottage, which we have raised, built a large studio on the bottom level, a mezzanine floor, and now it has become a rather quirky and exciting space to be in. It is situated in the Brisbane suburb of Paddington, which is very close to the city, and our house has panoramic views over the city and surrounding suburbs. Our renovations are almost finished, however we would like some assistance with landscaping, painting and some general handyman work. We have always done the majority of renovation work ourselves on different properties we have owned over the years, so we are both very “hands-on”. We are now getting to the stage where we would like to get this job finished and just kick back for a while, so we are looking for someone who can work beside us. Ideally, someone who has had painting experience, and who has had some basic handyman or building experience. From the house you can walk to the city, down to the river, the Queensland Art Gallery, Museum and Southbank parklands. There is also a bus stop a couple of minutes walk, connecting with other forms of transport in and around Brisbane. We have good wi-fi internet access and an art studio where you can paint and work with clay if this interests you.
