    Description

    I'm a friendly compassionate tradesman (a bricklayer) with a timber home renovation project that I would love help with. My weather board home is situated in suburban Hobart approximately 15 minutes drive from the center of Hobart. There is a newly renovated bedroom with a double bed available for workers. The kitchen is currently being built so I have set up a small kitchen in my laundry. I will provide ingredients for food but prefer workers to feed themselves.

    Help

    The greatest would be to find help from someone with carpentry skills to help with putting in door frames, windows, hanging doors and finishing off my kitchen. I also have a lovely cottage garden project that would love some more energy put into it. Cooking and cleaning would also be of use.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    One medium sized, newly renovated bedroom with a double bed is available. A single mattress can be added to the room for a 3rd person or privacy. Bathroom with a shower next to room. House has 2 toilets. A large back yard with garden on its way to bring a beautiful cottage garden. Street can be a bit noisy and has infrequent public transport. The bus exchange is a 10 minute walk. City 15 minutes drive. Museum of Old and New Art is 25-30 minutes walk and a 5 minute drive.

    I'm usually not home on the weekend so the house us yours!

    High quality Wi-fi.

    The kitchen is small so I ask that guests cook heir own meals. This will be reflected in a reduction of work expected from workaways. I will provide ingredients for cooking, fruit or whatever.

    A 1998 BMW 650 GS is available to borrow for those with an international motorcycle licence and travel insurance. I can take no responsibility or liability for any mishaps or injuries to workaways while operating the motorcycle. One helmet at the moment.
