We bought our dream property 18 months ago, we knew there was a lot of work to fix it up, just did not realise how much work there is, it's a huge project. There is just the two of us, with our Alpaca's (Alfie, Angus and Mack) Goats (Chocolate, Snowy and Banjo), chooks and a few Platypus in our ponds
DIY and building projects
We are easy-going, genuinely enjoy people and readily share our knowledge.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We live on a magnificent property, in a tiny village, (Maydena) surrounded by World Heritage Wilderness Areas and National Parks. As we are 76km from Hobart, you will need your own car.
The buildings are old and run down, and we are looking for help with building, gardening, painting, cleaning, the list is endless. Any skills to especially gardening, building or carpentry would be appreciated however, we are happy to work with you all you need is lots of enthusiasm
You will stay in a cottage on the property, which will be shared with other helpers. You will have your own bedroom, with a shared bathroom. We eat dinner together, with some of the cooking shared. We will provide a basic breakfast and lunch, which is eaten on your own.
