I live in a converted chapel, and will be extending it by adding an extra floor.The helpers will be assisting me in finishing the conversion,ie extending by adding a floor and various jobs to the existing conversion. It would be useful if they have basic building skills, but these can be taught. What is more essential is a willingness to learn the various skills necessary, and a willingness to try anything. The accommodation is individual bedrooms with bathroom, and there can be communal meals, or helpers can prepare their own meals.

The chapel is in an hill village called Bryn 12 miles from the seaside city of Swansea, with shops and night lift, and the beautiful Gower peninsula with its beaches, including water sport facilities (especially surfing). Swansea is also a springboard to Ireland. Near Bryn, there is a country park with a world class mountain bike route (bicycles available to borrow). It is on a bus route to Swansea, although there will be plenty of opportunities to get a lift in from myself.

The work will be on average 4 hours a day, but sometimes longer and on others there will be a day off.
