Activities & Shift

The outdoor building activity will depend on the weather. If it is raining, then you would not be expected to work in those circumstances. The hours would have to be shifted forward to times when it is likely to be dry.
Some landscaping in the garden also needed.


Pretty laid back but do not tolerate smoking indoors. Outdoor footwear to stay outdoors. No pets (we have two cats). Alcohol ok so long as its not excessive.
You are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare light foods ( with the exception of fish & red meat ). Not a fan of loud music. Prefer guests not to bring strangers into my home without asking first. Just general curtesy and consideration both ways works wonders.
