We are a family of 2 adults, 3 kids, 1 dog (older kelpie x whippett) and 1 cat. We built our own beautiful strawbale house and moved in nearly 2 years ago.
Our house is very warm and enery efficient but we need someone who can keep the wood-heater going to keep the house nice and cosy. Just a log or 2 in the morning and at night should keep you and the pets warm.
The animals are only fed in the mornings and they are pretty self-sufficient although Rusty the kelpie can be very affectionate.
We are away for 2 weeeks so there won't be too many jobs. We haven't really landscaped yet so there's no gardening to do.
We are in a lovely quiet part of Eltham with sheep across the road. Sometimes the kangaroos come and graze in the front. We have a tennis court if you want to brush up on your game!
This would be a great opportunity for ppl interested in sustainable housing.
