I moved from Australia to Croatia this year to begin a new chapter. I worked as engineer and lecturer for 10 years in Australia. I got a large, old, beach house close to Split, Croatia. First house next to the sea that is in need of people and renovation.
I am looking for people to help with house maintenance and renovation tasks. Everyone that has friendly disposition is welcome. I will find a task that you can help with based on your skillsets and interests.
Preference will be given to workawayers with electrical and plumbing skills.
I host at most 4 workawayers at any given time.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
You can enjoy the beach in front of the house, where you can swim, snorkle, catch fish... There may be oportunities to gain new work skills such as house renovating, gardening... There are historic sites to visit such as historic city of Split, Trogir and Sibenik, where you can experience Roman and medieval architecture.
I am looking for general maintenance help. This can include painting, minor stone tiling and woodwork. I don't expect more than 2 hours of help a day.

Large beach house that is being renovated. There are number of old bedrooms, old bathrooms and old kitchens that are available to be used. House will be renovated one part at the time. The house is old. One kitchen is new.
I like to swim and snorkle in front of the house. Sometimes I swim to the local beach caffee that is around 300m away. I also almost daily visit nearby towns and cities.
