The work will mainly involve: Renovatinging/decorating/DIY. But also cleaning the house, gardening, shopping, furniture restoration and whatever else is needed

I am very interested in hosting professionals with building skills. Plumbers, plasterers. carpenters, electricians, bricklayers, builders etc. I can host people for long periods (6 months +) if needed.

For professionals I am also interested in paying for extra hours worked, so please contact me if this is something you are looking for.

I would ideally like someone with some experience, but this is not essential.

In exchange for free accommodation and food, I would expect 4 hours a day help. If you have experience that would be excellent, if not then as long as you're hard working and quick to learn then I can guide you (I've renovated a few houses before)
I can be flexible as to how you work your hours, but this needs to be mutually agreed in advance

I do not allow smoking in the house
I do not want people who take drugs or drink to excess.
I adhere to the ethos of Helpx being a mutually beneficient exchange. If your primary motivation is only to to receive free accomodation in London and give the least possible back, then this is not the hosting for you

Please feel free to contact me for a chat to discuss in more detail the work and how we can help each other

Please always follow up your email contact with a telephone call.
I have Whatsapp for ease of contacting.

Accomodation:
Nice, Victorian house in quiet street in Stratford LONDON E15. All mod cons, garden, Stripped wooden floors. Very close to good amenities (shopping centre, cinema, library, theatre etc). Short walk (6 minutes)to Stratford station with excellent transport links (central line, Jubilee line, DLR, British Rail, Silverlink, channel tunnel link (Stratford international), bus depot and coach to Stanstead.
15 minutes on tube into CENTRAL LONDON. I have lived in London most of my life so can help suggest the best way to see it on a budget.
