  • Description


    Hello there, on the other side of the computer. I am looking for someone who is good in plumbing and/or electricity

    Now (from nov 2020 tm jan 2021 i am on a bike-adventure in Holland) When i am back i am looking for a handy workawayer.
    The works i have to do is plumbing, electricity and sawing trees.

    I am Gea and i live in a little yellow house with a big garden (500m2) full of plants. My red cat Tommy lives with me. Also two squirrels, a hedgehog, many birds and other little animals. My two sons, Tom (with his girlfriend Annet) and Luuk have their own place to live.

    My bathroom is under construction, i need a new hot water pipe (But it's possible to take a hot shower :).
    And the electricity in the house don't works on some places.
    There are 3 big trees, they should get a little bit shorter

    So you see, i have only some special works to do. There is no need for housekeeping work, gardenwork, care for animals and that sort of things.

    goodbye and maybe See you ! gea.
