The Experience

Are you a Tradie? Or Handyperson? We're cleaning out and demolishing old bungalows and other old buildings in preparation for building new wheel-chair accessible accommodation. The work will be removing walls, roofs etc. , sorting the reusable materials and putting the rest into the rubbish skips. Gloves and dust masks will be provided. Safety is important We're also renovating some old buildings so all trades and skills are most welcome.

The King Family are amazing! The are so careful, understanding, lovely and so funny!
They teach you with much patience, they explain everything step by step! And also teach about other things, like cook cookies 😅😂 I really had a very good time with them! Marilyn is a very positive person, they give us happiness day by day with her songs and games! Her daughter was so friendly and carrying, she also is so Funny and teach me so much new things. I really love this family and the experience! The place is far away from the city but it gave me so much peace!
