  • Description


    We are two in the household, I'm Shane, and I'm 30 years old. I work as a communication and marketing manager. Jesper is 54, and he is an engineer. We are very busy with our work, that's why we would like to have some help. The helper should be expected to help around 3-4 hours per day, and 5 days per week, you will have your weekend off.

    Dog task:

    We have a dog (Shih Tzu) in the house that needs to be taken care of, she had an operation this June, now she only has one eye left.
    It would be great that you have some experience with dogs!.

    - feed her breakfast, you need to stay with her while she eats, otherwise, she will not eat her food.
    -walk to the dog twice a day, 8:30- 9:00 in the morning and 16:30-17:00 in the afternoon, if the weather is good, you should take her for a longer walk.
    - make sure that the dog always has access to fresh water

    Other tasks:
    Some basic maintenance in the house. Tidy up and vacuum.
    We have a cleaning lady comes to do the thorough clean up every two weeks.

    We will provide you with some basic food that we normally eat.
    We normally make dinner at home, if we make food, we can eat together, we will expect you help out with tidying up. We have a dishwasher, so you do not need to handwash the things.
    If there's some especially food you would like to eat, you have to buy yourself.

    Personal preference: We would prefer not to have vegans.

    You will have your own room outside, and I would expect to tidy it up every now and then. If you are a messy guy, then sorry, maybe you are not the right person.
    In winter time, we have the floor heating in the room, if you want fresh air, you can keep your door and window open for 5-10 mins.
    Not 2 hours, I have told WA not to do this a few times, but it seems like it has been a problem. I had to close the window outside.

    We also have a boat project, that we would like to get it painted and renovated. (ALREADY DONE)
    We have bought the greenhouse but never had the time to put it up, we would like to get some help with that.
    There's also some garden work that we would like to get it done, plant some new flowers, tulips for the next year and fix the rest of the garden.

  • Help


    As I have to leave the house very early, I need someone to take care my dog, walk her in the morning and give her food.
    There is not housework everyday, but vacuum twice a week would be nice.
    It would be nice if you can make food sometimes, but not necessary, I enjoy cooking! I can probably teach you some good Chinese dishes.
    We would like to get the sail boat out of the water latest in October, we need some help with cleaning the boat and also paint the body, so it will not get rusty next year.
    Yes, there's also some garden work, but not much.
