We are in the final stages of completing our straw bale house and have loads of jobs to do, like rendering , landscaping work, tree planting, as well as general house jobs. We have an 8 year and 10 year old, so are happy if you love kids, for you to mind them, and us to do the above work. My youngest loves company, so if you like to play cricket, soccer, run, play cards, Monopoly and even build with Lego, he would really love that!
