    Tidy up, cleaning, painting and carpentry and possibly some help in the forest.
    lots of manual tasks.
    Usually we would say: varied types of help. We can find some tasks together that suits your skills and experience.
    But right now we really need people who know what they are doing, preferably a carpenter, joiner, at least handyman :-)

    We need a sitter and domestic help for our 2 girls (7 and 4). Someone who sees the work and owns it, since we will most likely both be working and the kindergarten is closed all July. Mary Poppins would be fine.

    Sorry folks but we do not have the money and possibility to have vegans or vegetarians. Or you guys build me that desperately longed for greenhouse.
