    Description

    Hi all
    Update:
    We are looking for one or two people to help in July and August and beginning of September. It needs to be someone that can work independently and doesn’t mind being on their own. Only Anika willl be here and she is working full time and only in the house evenings and weekends. Ideally someone with gardening or wood working skills.

    My name is Valli and I live with my partner and my best friend Anika 12 km from Sligo on the side of a hill with my dog, two cats, chickens and some bees in an old but cosy little cottage.
    We are building a tiny wooden house at the moment and are looking for help with the construction and also in the garden and possibly in my workshop too.
    Because of the big variety of jobs here I can only take helpers with either very good English or German language skills. I`m looking for people with some experience in the required jobs and that can work independently.

    We eat a healthy variety of food in the house, vegetables, meat, fish, ....

    Depending on the weather I do a lot of climbing, kayaking, surfing, cycling and aikido and you are of course welcome to join me.

    I dont mind helpers that want to come at short notice. I`m not so good at planning far ahead...
