  • Descripción


    Free accommodation for two months (September 15 - November 15) at a heritage-listed house in New Lynn, in exchange for preparing and painting the interior rooms

    You would be expected to prepare and paint one room per week (about 4-6 hours work per room for a professional, will take longer for an amateur)

    Some experience painting is preferred, but not necessary, if you don’t mind learning by yourself without much supervision

    - you get the whole house to yourself
    - you could choose to work as a team of 2-4 people if you like
    - ten minute walk to train/bus station, Lynn Mall, library etc
    - free power, and wifi if required
    - paint and equipment supplied (would be good if you already had some equipment)
    - basic bedding, appliances, cleaning and kitchen equipment supplied

    The house is in a very poor state inside (hence the need for painting), but you will have good quality appliances

    It will be occupied by our family, from the South Island, after November 15. You will receive some supervision from our family in Auckland, but you need to be able to work alone most of the time. If you are not making progress you will have to move out.

    When you respond, please tell me about yourself, your experience, and why you would be a trustworthy worker and house sitter. Please answer these questions: - have you ever painted a room before ? Have you ever stripped wallpaper or done plastering? Thank you
