  • Description


    I'm looking for someone to give me a hand with my garden and different projects around the house. There's always something to do in a big house with a big garden. If you have experience in DIY it's a great help. I have some experience after renovating the ground floor of the house but as I have to work Mon-Fri office hours, I can only join in the work during the evenings and most weekends. In exchange for your help, I'll invite you to stay in my home and I'll introduce you to Finnish culture.

    Here are some of the projects on my list - no schedule for them yet and depending on the month and person helping me, I'm pretty flexible in making the plans:

    - There's an old wood burning sauna in the garden, that needs renovating as it's not usable currently. This would involve removing the old ceiling and building a new one, stripping old wood panels from the walls and installing new ones, removing paint work from two old wooden windows and then giving them a new coat of paint, installing new benches for the sauna, etc.
    - Old wooden swing set needs painting (and removing the old paint before that)
    - Few old flower beds need complete refreshing
    - Upstairs bedrooms need painting

    Aside from the help with the house and garden, during my holidays I'm looking for someone to come and look after my two senior cats. My cats are friendly 15-year olds but with their age, this is not suitable for a family with small children. The person / persons looking after the cats should have experience with senior cats and giving them medication.

    My place is only 4 km to the town centre of Hämeenlinna, which is a small town with all the necessities and only an hour away from Helsinki, Tampere or Lahti. Hämeenlinna can be easily reached by trains or busses.

    If it's during my holiday, my cats need feeding 3 times a day including giving medication once a day.
    For DIY projects I'd prefer someone who already has experience, as I'm not sure I'll have the best skills myself to teach anyone.
