    Hi! My name is Ian, I am laid back and appreciate that workaway is about experiencing another country and not just working. I love Malta/summer too!

    My lifestyle is a little complicated, I have 4 houses and a boat - all sleep a maximum of 4 people. 2 houses are converted and rented out as short time vacation homes (You can sleep in these houses when they not rented out), the other 2 are being converted (one of these 2 is habitable with water and electricity). And there is the 10m sailing boat which is always available. I live with girlfriend and son and dog in Sliema.

    Help needed (first quarter of 2018): We will be scouting for Maltese old tiles and restoring, installing bathrooms, finishing plumbing, structural building, there is also some website work.

    There is a lot to do, 2018 is already looking great.

    I will cover accommodation and food costs.

    - Tilers
