We are in Kent, a short walk from the centre of the picturesque historical town of Rochester with it's Dickensian heritage, Norman Castle and its' own Cathedral. We have good railway access to London and Dover.
Our house is a renovation work-in-progress. We can offer short term accommodation in exchange for internal and external skills. Examples of which are garden taming, tree surgery, using a drill (curtain poles, shelves), small scale plumbing and wiring (only if qualified), plasterboarding, fitting insulation, gloss painting, curtain making, housekeeping or just as an extra set of muscles for moving furniture around.
We are Eco-friendly, Green, Festival folk and welcome your ideas, experience and practical assistance to fulfill some of our plans.
Our home is a pet-friendly, non-smoking and vegetarian household. Smoking is acceptable only in the garden please and you are welcome to cook meat but preferably while we're out, haha.
We have a spacious room for a single helper or for two friends/ a couple to share during your stay. There is broadband available and use of a standard bicycle. We would request 20 hours of help per week in exchange for accommodation and food, including a communal meal each day. The house is quite basic though. My kids' friends used to refer to it as indoor camping... We hope that with your help this will improve!
More details will be added as we go along. In the meantime please do contact us if you would like to know more...
When you email, can you please give an outline of your experience, level of skill (eg amateur/ qualified - all welcome) favourite past projects and personal enthusiasms.
