  • Description


    hi please read my description carefully...and just to clarify.....I am not offering a Room in our shared flat for people looking for accommodation in Berlin. The guest room wood be yours for the time you are helping with the renovation projects of the flat.

    Looking for someone with the skills I mention below...........Project could start at the beginning of November and should be manageable in more or less 14 day max.

    I live in a Commune in in the former western part of Berlin, very central. The Apartment is 200 square meters big and is as most buildings build 1900. We live on the 4th floor, with an Elevator in the House and have a magnificent view from our balcony. You would have your own little guestroom and WiFi.

    The others in the apartment are quite busy bees, Uta works as a translator, Philipp is an international lawyer and Alexandra is in IT. I (Claudia) used to work on Yachts and as a Dive instructor, worldwide. Ten years ago i decided to grow some roots and came to Berlin. Worked as a Chef and then opened my own Burger restaurant. This is all now history.

    At the moment I have lots of time on my hands to back problems I am not able to do all my planned changes to the apartment on my own....This is where you would come into the game.

    I have just stripped my wooden floor and gave it 2 coats of Hardwax oil. A built in shoe cupboard needs some shelves fit in, A big Lamp needs to be hung up and connected .A curtain rail needs installing, a hugh heavy mirror needs to be hung up, Some wooden doors in the apartment need adjusting as they only close with force, either the wood needs some trimming or the hinges need adjusting... the Kitchen is the second project.....I have a new counter top that needs to be cut to fit and installed. I am looking for someone who is an all rounder , knows how to use electrical power tools....and has an understanding for woodwork, old concrete walls etc.

    I am a good chef and will cook for us every day......I would like someone who is fun and happy and wants to explore Berlin. Its still quite warm here...lots of Forrest and some lakes close by and museums, flee markets, you name it.... I have a spare bicycle that you could use...unfortunately it has a flat tire....but fixing that wont take long.......

    We all speak German and English, Uta also French and Italian, Phillip also speaks Arabic and Alexandra Russian...but as the two of us will be working together you should speak, either German or English, so communication is possible.

    So someone that has most of the skills that are required to tackle the projects would be cool.....

    Looking forward to your replies
