Help needed to paint front and sides of farm house and fix old windows near Narromine NSW. Our farm house is white weather board. 6 years ago we were fortunate enough to have a good year and were able to fix the back of the house but the front and sides have paint peeling off them and the timber is visible. we have one broken window that is taped up but many of the old windows cannot even be opened.
If at all possible we’d just be so thrilled with the painting being done. The gauze on the eastern side of the house windows has perished so in summer we cant open those windows, due to the amount of bugs. We love our old farmhouse and it was built by my husbands widowed grandmother in 1957 and we have lived here for just over 30 years. As I’m sure you are aware that a lot of the time, the house is the last to have money spent on it and its becoming obvious over the last 4 years especially with our lack of income from flood then drought.
Amazing what a lick of paint can do and I’m happy to help out when I can. I have a big garden that I’m struggling to keep alive but its a nice relaxing environment with a peacock, guinea fowl, chooks and 2 very friendly dogs. We also have what we call our “oasis” which is a spot over at our house dam where we go to chill out. Accommodation and meals provided for some very much appreciated help. For further information please ask when applying.
