Help needed in September...
We are looking for a motivated, easy-going, enthusiastic and healthy, mature thinking helper to help with small building projects.
At the moment we are, building a large porch to the front of the house.
The one piece fibreglass roof is almost finished.
There is insulation to add and plasterboard.
Sorting the gardens front and rear... Renewing the guttering... Insulating the external walls.
Building a brick and glass shed/greenhouse to the back garden.
Plant organic veg garden...
Also interested in acrylic rendering and external eco-insulating with EPS to passive standards on the house walls. Have started this and making progress.
We ask for 4 hours per day of your time for a clean private room, healthy meals some wine or beer. We regularly eat meat, but welcome veggies.. Love curries, marmite and traditional English ..
We like to do Sunday lunch with the extended family.
length of the stay varies but is minimum 1 week and the nature of the help required is basically laboring with the possibility of learning basic construction skills.. learning how to lay bricks mix concrete and block paving plasterboarding.
Bring with you clothes, sun cream, mosquito repellent, own beach towel, boots etc.
I would never ask you to do something that I would not be prepared to do myself.
There is always a chance to help out cooking, shopping, dog-sitting, tidying, mending.
Please don't bring chemical sprays.. Sorry, I've an allergy to spray can repellent.
If you have allergies let me know..
I like to take long walks with my totally nuts black Labrador...
Friday afternoon I like a pint of real beer in the town. Hmmmm Porter..
Here is unrestricted high speed WIFI.
It's strange how a persons life can change in such a short length of time... 2016 had not been a good year due to the death of my father in January and a serious riding accident in France which left me with a broken Achilles tendon... now 95% healed.
In October I moved back to my family home to care for my mother, in my spare time, I'm working on transforming the garden to provide parking space and low maintenance planters.
Please get in touch if you'd like to join us for a few days, a week, or even longer - we'd love to hear from you!
Happy to host outdoor smokers.
I tend to be put off by couch surfers and people with an interest in watching other people play video games on their mobiles.
