    Description

    My name is Mark. I am offering the opportunity to work on rebuilding and decorating a beautiful 100 year old Japanese Farmhouse (Kominka). Be instrumental in helping renovate and make available a unique piece of Japanese history. It is a on a trainline with access to Himeji (35mins), Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto and Nara. I need build with roofing skills and also installing a wet room for the Spa Bath....I need someone who has installed Solar Water Heating systems for a roof in an open system without assisted heating. I can't offer food or help with the groceries and that is why the work expectation is only 15 hours per week.
