  • Description


    Hi, I'm Marianne,
    my husband and I just bought a house in Nelson BC and would like some help renoing it. We need to paint the walls and some kitchen cabinets and refinish a wooden floor.

    The main work would be painting for now, but anybody with carpentry or woodworking skills would be much appreciated, as we also need to do some finishing touches to the place, it`s an old house and it needs some love.

    We offer room and board in a different house from the one we're working on. Occasional help with cooking would be much appreciated.
    Please get in touch if you have any questions.
