Launceston and Campbell Town from May 2020.
We live in a beautiful 1920s house close to the city in Launceston. We are need people who have some sort of construction of experience who can help us make a studio flat downstairs and also help us with a few things at our other house.
We are sisters, Ned and Leny, my adult son Akira, Dante the chihuahua, Mollie the lurcher (whippet/border collie) and Guy and Murray the cats.
Ned is a digital artist and Leny is a jack of all trades. We only moved to Tassie in 2014 and we absolutely love it but we still have a lot more to see so there is a good chance that we will do some sightseeing with our helper.
We usually live in a beautiful 1920's "arts & crafts" house 3km south of Launceston city centre. It is quite a big house with a lovely garden and we always need help maintaining it.
We also have a house (and a house truck) right in the centre of Campbell Town, a small historic town very conveniently located on the highway 67km from Launceston and 134 km from Hobart. We are a few doors down from the very picturesque 'Red Bridge' the oldest bridge on a highway in Australia.
We often go to Campbell Town (45 mins drive away) to spend a few days finishing renovations, gardening and mowing the lawn. Also to give the dogs a good run around our paddock and a swim in the river. We always appreciate help while we are there.
Other jobs include gardening, cleaning, walking and playing with the dogs, patting and adoring the cat. We provide meals (often vegetarian) and a room to yourself.
We are happy to take someone with very short notice. 2 to 4 hours work per day without or with food. We don't have a strict schedule for helpers and we're willing to give days off whenever you want as long as you make up the time on other days.
We live in a house with a big yard, NOT A FARM, we don't have the authority to help you get your visa, sorry.
