    My profile..omnivore, hetero male. I'm not Vaccinated ,Don't mind if you are or not.
    living in Portugal since 1990, with diverse interests, mostly things 'classic' I have bikes to restore, a boat to maintain, an old stone built cottage and various workshops and outbuildings that need attention, and I have just acquired a huge pile of used mahogany planks, skirting boards, panelling, all needing sorting, de/nailing, to be used for new chicken coops, building a shelter, etc, so I need someone comfortable working with power saws and general woodworking stuff. still there is garden spring cleaning, some housework, perhaps a bit of painting and decorating.
    I have a conservation and restoration business, professionally working with works of art on paper.
    Revision /Update
    all of the above and below, but I'm getting very busy with my professional work and need someone for the whole or part of March, short notice , maybe even immediate start. but not long term. maybe until end of first week of april. Garden maintenance , power tools, strimmers chainsaws pruning olives and figs, stacking firewood. painting and decorating , .
    read every thing again and if you fit you are welcome, but if you turn up and you dont fit you are out immediately.
    but I expect you to realise that.

Strictly no smoking inside anywhere on the property .Bicycles here, .. I will cook a full meal every evening, or you can share the cooking... and provide basic breakfast and lunch but I wont prepare it for you. 4 hours a day five days a week, You don't work whatever two days a week you choose but still board and lodging is provided.

    parking by the property is fine but sometimes you might have to move let a tractor go past... I have a large field about 100 metres from the house where the van can be left indefinitely, but no facilities there. but 1 minute walk to the house and work area.
