    Hello My name is Morten. I am retired from work but still active.I have a wonderful wooden summerhouse built in 1917 just 12 kilometres outside Central Copenhagen on the seaside I live here in the summer with my lovely Jack -a Yorkshire-. You can go by bus to the Copenhagen Airport and from there with the Metro in 12 minutes to the centre. I need help to paint the house and windows. Some garden work and clean up my garage and general maintenance. Unfortunately I have not been able to download photos of my summerhouse.

    The house needs painting before the winter period. You will work in some height and must be comfortable on a ladder. The windows need scraping before painting . Before winter there is need of gardening. working hours will approx. be from 09 to 14 hours. If You can set up my computer and printers I would be grateful.
