  • Description

    We are seeking work that is interesting and diverse, primarily September - May as we live in northern Minnesota and enjoy our summers here. Dan has worked on many home projects including room additions, total refurbishments, painting, etc but have only basic electrical and plumbing skills. Dan totally enjoys gardening (once certified Master Gardener) and anything outdoors expect I do not like working on roofs! Basically I can do most anything with my wife able to to many things so long as heavy lifting is not involved. Marial is a master seamstress and also very good at computers. We both have advanced business degrees and can also help with business related needs. I love to cook and would be happy to share some of my specialties. Ideally we would want to have stays 2 - 4 weeks in length but are open to the needs of the host. We would need to have our own bedroom and prefer to have access to a limited use bathroom.
