I am a fit and healthy, semi retired ex-teacher, living on my own in a rented Cortijo in Almeria Province, Spain. I say on my own? Sharing my house are three dogs, a cat, and outside 3 horses.
No, this request is nothing to do with the above though you will be living here so must be an animal lover.
I have bought a traditional stone house in a local hamlet, where I will be moving to in October. Although the house is in reasonable nick, it has been empty for two years. The roof needs some patching; and general painting, and filling in, where some plasterwork has fallen off. Some general cleaning out too.
If there are a couple of persons, one with traditional building skills, you would be ideal, but one of you with general building work experience would be suitable too.
What I can promise you is very comfortable bedrooms, and fantastic food - I used to be a chef and now blog about my experiences.
Please get in touch soon as the work is now a matter of urgency. I can offer board to two people for a maximum of two months. You can help me move too if you like, but not expected.
Please note, the most I can offer you is the two months.
Traditional building experience would be so useful but If you have not these skills just general building work experience, I am sure we can learn these techniques between us - the internet is a fantastic tool!
I have added a few images showing the beautiful Almond growing area where I live. An hour from the beach, or Benidorm an hour and a half away; Granada, the same. I am a happy person, relocated to a country I love. My animals are happy too; Bertie and Puppie have wonderful temperaments, and my horses: gentle giants! You can use my vehicle to visit the great bars in the locality, where tapas are still served free when you buy a beer (for 1.25 Euros)! Fantastic or what? The local town has a market too, as do most of the little towns around here.
I hope you will get in touch, even for just a chat. I am on FaceTime and WhatsApp so calls are free via these two. Thank you. :)X
