Hi, we are Rolls & Lizzy.
We live in a large house on the hill in a beautiful part of town close to walking tracks, the beach and the harbour.
Although still broken after the earthquakes, our house is clean and tidy and cosy.
We are about to engage in a refurbishment of our home and some earthquake repairs so having some extra hands available are welcome. We will be doing some landscaping, building an additional vege plot, building a chicken coop, installing a glasshouse, etc. Many projects anticipated. And there is always tidy-up work to be done such as sweeping, pruning, weeding.
Honesty, integrity, respect, and laughter are important values to us. We are Course students and welcome people with open minds.

We are both European from origin, both well educated, in our 50's, have open minds, and have lived through the earthquakes. Interesting dinner-table-talk guaranteed!
I am a Data Scientist and Lizzy a Forensic Therapist.
Our garden is well established and grows and grows and grows. We need help maintaining it and extending the vegetable garden. Being on the hill, work can be physically demanding. Looking for someone/a couple with green fingers or building skills.

I work from home while my wife Lizzy is project-managing our home refurbishment and garden projects. We have a good internet connection. We welcome a good connection with our WorkAwayers. eg a daily coffee together or sharing dinner together. We also value our private downtime in the evening.
Within limits. We have 2 Maine Coons and 4 chickens ourselves so any additional pets would need to fit in with them.
