We are married with an 11 year old, an 8 year old, a spoodle dog and have lived in Brisbane for the last 7 years. We have travelled extensively to all parts of the world and have lived in both England and South Africa. We enjoy a nice glass of wine or cold beer every evening whilst sitting on our deck enjoying spectacular city views.
We have a beautiful swimming pool for you to enjoy and you can join my husband for a round of golf or go out on his boat fishing in stunning Moreton Bay.
My husband is a civil engineer and I work in the hotel and casino industry.
We are making improvements to our home and would love it if you could help us build a few stud walls (carpentry/joiner skills would be very useful), tiling, plastering and also help with painting.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are a well travelled family who would like to show off the great Aussie lifestyle and the beautiful local areas to explore. There is so much to see and do and Brisbane caters for every persons interests.
If you don’t know anything about cricket my husband can bore you with the rules of the game and take you to the Gabba to watch a game if you like.
We need people to help my husband build a few internal timber frame and plasterboard walls to create an additional bedroom in our house. The walls will need plastering and painting. We also have quite a bit of painting to do in the house.
We have a beautiful, recently decorated bedroom with its own bathroom downstairs in our house. We also have another bedroom downstairs if we have more helpers. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans. Our house is large enough for you to find your own quiet space if you need it. We have internet access and cable/Fox TV. We are 5-10 minutes walk from Cannon Hill Train Station and bus stops.
I cook delicious meals every evening or we enjoy good old aussie barbeques.
We are perfectly located for easy access to the motorway for trips to the Sunshine Coat and Gold Coast.
There is so much to do in Brisbane. Great activities include exploring the beaches of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, Exploring the hinterland, fishing, mountain biking, golfing, wineries, rock climbing. If there is anything in particular you would like to do we can arrange for you.
