  • Description

    Description

    I live with my husband and 1 son in London and two other adult children live nearby. I have worked for the NHS for over 35 years. My husband is Polish and although having lived in London for over 35 years I was born in Wales and still feel very Welsh!

    Help

    Hi I am looking for someone with some carpentry / decorating / plastering experience to help restore a beautiful 19th century house on the coast in West Wales, in Tenby and possibly some help in London. I have one workaway staying with me who is a Spanish man in his twenties. Restoring generally a beautiful old house including painting doors. The main criteria is a friendly person who is willing to appreciate the value of old buildings.

    You will have your own bedroom and cooking will be shared between the host and the workaway but will be paid for by the host (the host works full time and is always exhausted!!!)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    West Wales has a lot of coastal walking and London is one of the most fascinating cities in the world (my apologies for the recent vote to leave the EU!). I have no experience of workaway as yet but we are a couple with 3 adult children, one of whom lives with us in London. We are relaxed and generally easy going although we would like someone who is skilled in the area of maintenance etc. We would want to support any visitors with as much flexibility as possible and are open to discussion.
