    Hello, I have a land in Baratti gulf near piombino, 10 minutes bike to one of the best beaches in toscana! In this land there is a small house about 30 square meters and I would like to offer free housing in a private room bathroom and shower in exchange with help remodelling part of this cottage house, I would like to paint everything white (Outside of the cottage, 1 room, small kitchen and bathroom) I would like to put down new tiles in floors in kitchen, room and in the bathroom, also in the bathroom I would like to change the sink and bidet, one last thing I would like to extend the electrical in the room to put a light in the center as for right now it is on the side.

    We also have garden work to be done trimming plants, bushes, and trees, we have about 15 olive trees 1 apricot, 2 pears and 2 fig trees! we would like to plant more plants too!

    So the exchange person needs to know how to do all those things, we usually work from 9am to 1pm, and the rest of the day is free so about 5 hours a day and 2 days off a week, I think 2 weeks to 3 weeks should be enough time to accomplish this project, but we can also do part of the project at the time!
