Hello!

I am Nico, a full-time traveler (although now full-time web developer) from Barcelona.
I have traveled for +40 months and am now in London living in an old Victorian house of Nick, a cool guy who picked me up hitch hiking last year.
I mentioned I wanted to come to England so he offered me to stay at his place in exchange for very little work.
I have received so much help during my travels that now I have "my own place" I can help other people. I was always so glad when people offered me a bed, but it takes so little effort to help travellers that I feel bad for not having people over every single day...

At the end of May 2016, when I moved in, Nick and I started to fix the house and make it more friendly to live in. We had the idea that people could come and help us refurbish it in exchange for accommodation. It is an old Victorian house in Zone2 of London, and Nick and I (Nico) have completely refurbished one room (the one you'll stay in) by knocking down a wall and plastering it all over.
UPDATE 2018: The house is almost finished, and looks beautiful (see link to pictures) with only small details to be finished (plus exterior works).

WE ARE LOOKING FOR ACTIVE PEOPLE: maybe you're a traveller and just want to stay one week, or ten nights, or two weeks for free in London, or maybe you're planning to move into London to work! In both cases we'll be happy if you stay with us, and Nick will help you (and guide you) through the process of getting bank account, National Insurance Number, phone number...!

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO:
We have spare rooms and ANY help will be appreciated, 3 to 4 hours (of decent work) a day is enough. You are free to do work as you want, and have the rest of the day to go visit or explore (if you're travelling) or go hand-in CVs (if you are looking for a job and want to live in London).

HOW LONG CAN YOU STAY:
We think that one week is a good amount of time, although feel free to request for as little as two nights and maybe you can stay longer than two weeks if you prove to be of great help, or prove to be great company! (I stayed one year, Lukash stayed 5 months, Calin stayed 3 months...)

MORE PICTURES:
See my photos web link above.

ADDENDUM : I (Nico) am currently away, but Nick can't wait for your help. HelpX messages will be sent directly to Nick. PS. No Wi-fi, sorry...

NOTE: Hi, I'm Nick. THE LAST GUEST I'VE HAD IS A HOMOPHOBIC AND HAS THREATENED ME TO LEAVE A BAD REVIEW UNLESS I STATE MY SEXUAL ORIENTATION, which I would normally consider not to be anyone's business.
