    Hello, Current skill-sets requested are: Experienced Carpentry, Landscaping and deep cleaning.

    I welcome a hard worker to assist with some labor intensive projects.

    Carpentry: This house and barn was built in the early 1800's. The bottom trim around most buildings need to be replaced. Also requesting assistance to build-out of the interior of the carriage house, building fences and helping to construct some raised herb gardens. Endless projects for an experienced, quality carpenter.

    Landscaping: As we transform the landscape, we seek help from light raking and mowing to helping construct some gardens, including the design and creation of an herb harden and an English garden.

    Deep cleaning: There are lots of nooks and spaces in this antique home. Hoping to find a self-motivated individual to take ownership of helping to bring this extensive property up to a proud showpiece. Occasional Assistance with guests and events.

    This is a great place to spend the summer! (Pool, hot tub, gym, privacy) There is still a lot to do, and I appreciate your help! This spring, we will work hard to restore this property so that we can give this Farmhouse and barn a second life. Your hard work and dedication is appreciated.

    I have 2 acres and a beautiful 200 year old farm house with multiple buildings that includes a 3 story barn. There is an endless list of projects to rebuild, restore and revive. I also have a pool, hot tub, gym, tavern and 3 spare bedrooms. Just a few miles south of Nashua, NH and 45 minutes from Boston. Endless tax free shopping and Public transportation is 4 miles away. Thank you for considering.

    About me: Single, no children or pets. I work from home as a consultant to the Biotech industry. I have a passion for my recently bought property, but may have taken on more than I can keep up with alone!

    Thank you for considering,
    Jon
    (PS, I have 2 border collie puppies!)

    After working hard all week, I will take you into town for some much deserved time away, and love to host regular parties with family and friends. Please understand, only non-smokers can be considered. Thank you!

    As you read in my feedback, a Workaway experience here can be fun and fulfilling.

    Please note: This property is located in Dunstable USA, not the UK.

    Private bedroom. Semi private bathroom, depending on how many others will be staying here. (I have my own) This is pretty country and the home is pretty quiet and peaceful. I am a non-smoker and appreciate the same.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Many local farms, close to tax free shopping in Nashua, hiking and biking trails, 4 miles from public transportation, many restaurants and pubs 4 miles away. This is pretty country. I have an updated gym on the property and a new therapeutic hot tub for the tired muscles! I will take you out for dinner and drinks on a weekend night, and I can drop you off for several hours in Boston when I head into town and you are welcome to join me on my regular trips to visit family on Cape Cod. The bus to Boston is 3 miles away, and the bus ride is about 45 minutes to Boston.
