Last minute opportunity for the second week of September, after that a break from helpx until next year.


We are moving into my parents house and childhood home. It's a lovely house with an interesting history and one of the best views in the island of Jersey. After a number of years in a semi-empty state it needs some t.l.c. - repairs, renovations, redecorating, restorations, etc.

So we are looking for help to turn it into a lovely home once again!

This could be with...

Building work (sanding, plastering, insulation, carpentry, painting, plumbing, roofing, etc, based on your experience and interests).
Gardening work (to keep on top of the beautiful organic garden before the weeds take over).
Looking after our small 3+ year old child.

Wherever possible we will be using environmentally friendly materials and practices.

We would ensure that everybody is greeted with a big smile, is well fed, has a comfortable bed to sleep in and the chance to explore the island whenever we/you take a break from the work. We have a few bikes that you will be able to use. And of course we hope that you might one day come back and visit us and the island again in the future!

We are both artists. You can read more about our work on our website (see link above).

My parents helpx Jersey profile with a few additional images can be found here:

The growing list of helpers: Thanks to Chris, Miriam, Kerstin, Camilla & Huw, Ronja & Jens, Robin, Erwan, Guido & Nina, Alba, Simone & Gulia, Dani, Anne & Daniel, Christoph, Sebastian & Till, Jay, Franck, Jasmine, Elma, Romaine, Natasha, Aurelle, Kevin, Marina, Fernando, Paul

How long?
Helpers usually stay with us for two to four weeks.
How much help/work?
Half days seems reasonable (about 4 hours a day) and has worked well so far. There is no fixed routine, it all depends on the weather, deadlines, your wishes, etc.
