I am new to Helpx. I own a home in a very popular part of Philadelphia. I also own a artisan business a couple blocks away in which we make very fancy ornamental details for very fancy interiors. I have been too busy with my business. My home was renovated 8 years ago and I have not found the time to install my own fancy details.

I would love to host someone or a couple who knows basic carpentry and tile setting who could help me install wainscoting, ornamental plaster molding, tile.... I will also be casting cement counter tops for the kitchen. There are many projects to be finished including garden work and painting both interior and exterior. I will make the meals but I expect you to clean up after yourself!

The perks are; you will be staying in a very pretty home (which will be prettier after your stay) in a very popular part of the city. There are many restaurants , coffeeshop shops, music venues, historic attractions and museums within walking distance. This is a great opportunity to explore Philadelphia and /or experience urban living. You will have your own furnished room with a shared bathroom. I am somewhat of a gourmet cook. We do eat meat but I am experienced in vegan / raw preparation and gluten free meals. You will also have access to my workshop which is nationally recognized. My world is very creative and busy and I am very connected locally with the community.

My other housemates include two renters on the third floor, two cats and a small sweet cairn terrier dog. I am requesting a 1 month maximum stay. Anything less is fine.
