Area: Hautes Pyrenees, bordering the Haute GaronneThree years ago we moved from a different region to this property just over an hour to the south-west of Toulouse. My husband is not a DIY person, but does love the garden. We really could do with some help on all sorts of levels and hope to find somebody who would enjoy being part of a happy and homely environment, together with the experience of being in France for a while.
Area: Anchorage, AlaskaMy husband and I are currently in the process of restoring a very sad and neglected house located in Anchorage, Alaska. The house is still a work in progress, we’re still working on the inside and the outside is half way there. We need a lot of help! So come help with building, gardening, making ceramics and other useful projects. You get to stay in a private room that we just completely renovated. So you can have some privacy when you get tired of hanging out with us. The upstairs is mostly done, we are currently gearing up for taking on the basement of the house.
