  • Description

    Description

    We live on a 2 hectare bush property 30 minutes southwest of Hobart. Currently we are in the process of extending our owner-built and designed house, simply because our children, Lilia (10) and Otto (14) are bigger and we need more space. Werner is a builder and has just started building the extension. Sam is a primary school teacher working in Hobart.
    Since we’re both really busy we mostly would like help with housework, cooking and some gardening and other jobs around the block but if you have construction skills we would love you to help with the building.
    We have a small hut with electricity, an awesome outdoor shower and basic composting toilet setup. There is a camp Kitchen with gas cooker as well but we would prefer to have evening meals together with our helpers.
    We are a German and English speaking household. We all love the outdoors and do a range of activities including mountain biking, bushwalking and swimming.
    Having your own transport is an advantage because we are 4.5km up the hill from the nearest bus stop.

    Werner would like help building and/or help with housework, cooking, some gardening and general maintenance around the block, even just picking up sticks and bark which are constantly dropped by the eucalypts.
