Hello, I am a woman who is renovating her stone cottage. I live in a very pretty area of north west France: Swiss Normandy. The scenery is varied and beautiful. There are many sporting activities in the area : hiking, canoeing, kayaking, paragliding. But if you want to discover the landing beaches, the nearest beach is 45 kms and accessible by car but also by bus (the bus stops outside the house). I have two girls of 22 who are in college and are not often at home. I live with my two dogs, Samy and Helios. I love meeting new people, learning about other cultures and talking, but I know also respect the need for tranquility of others.
I am looking for someone to help me do ( plasterboard ) drywall to finish renovating my house in stone. The plumbing is done and power is nearly finished, but I can't do plaster boarding alone , plasterboard sheets are too heavy . (14 kg). I have renovated another house so I know how it's done ! ;-)
I am looking for someone to help me during my next holidays : 2nd to 17th april 2016, so 2 weeks.
French and basic english
I can offer a comfortable room with a toilet and a private shower in the house where I live now. The house I am renovating is 2 kms away.
The bus to Caen (large university town 30 kms away) or the landing beaches stops just outside the house. So it is easy to travel and explore the region. I have not received any work aways before but I am very motivated to live this new experience. My English is not perfect but if you wish to learn French then that is great , it's ok, I'm a teacher! I try to eat a healthy and balanced diet and I love to cook and share meals with my friends. I look forward to this new experience and the help with the renovation of course, but also a cultural exchange. I want to welcome someone for 15 days minimum (5 hours of work per day, 5 days per week) with an initial 5-day trial period to see if we get along well.
