  • Descrição


    We are a couple, Arja and Tommi, with four small dogs. We live in an apartment with a small garden. Our place is located about 5km away from the Oulu city centre.

    We would like to get some help with cleaning, cooking, gardening, with the dogs and with all things people might need do at home. We might also need some help at Arja's childhood home which is located in the neighbor town. This would be mostly during the weekends. In the summer time, we also spend some time in our summer house. It's located about 100km to the North from Oulu. There's always quite a bit to do. In the summer and in the autumn, there are more things to do in all of the places. For instance, we grow some vegetables and berries at home and at Arja's parents' place, pick wild berries and mushrooms. There are always some small things to fix, too. In the winter time, there are fewer things to do outside. Mostly shoveling the snow off the driveway and from the pathways.

    We are usually quite flexible with your working hours. We we don't necessarily need you every day and some days might include less, some days a little more. However, it would be nice if you could at least occasionally participate in the basic household duties as you'd participate at your own home, too. After all, you will be living with us like a family member, not as a total otsider who only works for us.

    We can always talk and negotiate about which days of the week and what times of the day you should stay at home and when you are free to go out or travel. It's quite important you let us know well beforehand, since it's not possible to leave the dogs totally alone for longer than a few hours. As a basic rule, we hope you could tidy up your own mess, give a bit of attention to the dogs and do such things that everyone must do at home even if you are having a free day. We do the same also after work but of course, we can always negotiate about everything.

    As a conclusion, there won't be many things which are different than we'd do ourselves. We will have you as a part of the family and wish you'd also contribute to the common wellbeing and homey atmosphere. The important thing for us is that you also feel like home and you can have an enjoyable stay. If you feel you might like to live with us for a while, please send a message.
