The main job consists of general maintenance of our familiy home and out buildings: think renovating, painting buildings, cutting wood, cutting grass, weeding, picking berries, apples etc.
Besides the general maintenance we can use help in our Bed & Breakfast. We have two cottages which we rent out: think cleaning and changing bedding.
Furthermore we have a big garden that needs to be taken care of. So cutting grass, weeding, picking berries, apples, etc. need to be done.
