A shed, once an upholstery workshop is being converted into a modern studio and flat as I am ex-pat returning to UK for health reasons.
General experienced handy-persons who know their Phillips from their slotted; straightforward electrical skills, positive and negative; plumbing, in plastic; plastering and plaster-boarding; and simple woodworking skills are all necessary. Up to three weeks serious work, dormitory living, in “sunny” South Wales, Swansea. Overlooking a park, quiet, clean and secure. Communal living but not a commune. Beds, clean linen, indoor bathroom h/w and w/c, food, electric blankets. No smokers, no heavy boozers.
Bed making, house keeping, cooking and washing-up are not part of the “working” day.
Host, John, ex RAF photo-reconnaissance, ex advertising manager, ex lead-soldier producer, ex property developer, and now ex-middle aged, mid seventies, with a very bad back. Hobbies; military and social history, cinema and film, property restoration, English language.
Help with clearing and cleaning, also driving around the Swansea area sourcing and ordering material. Polishing and/painting a few pieces of old furniture to make the 45 sq m room habitable while work continues.
If we make this successful, next spring perhaps come and help in our main house, La Preghiera Country House,in Italy.
