    Description

    My name is Marion and I live with my beautiful big dog, called Dog (there is a reason behind such an imaginative name, lol!) and my pretty little 3-legged cat, called Little Girl. I have 5 chickens, all laying enough eggs to bake, cook with and give away to friends. I also have 2 roosters, one too many! Rehoming one rooster is maybe impossible at this stage, I will keep trying.
    We currently live in a beautiful cabin by the river in Drumcliffe, Co. Sligo. Outside is just lovely, there is a view of Benbulben, trough the trees, but an uninterrupted view is only a 10minute walk away, with even more spectacular walks/views/beaches all very nearby too.
    The cabin is 5miles from Sligo town, on the Wild Atlantic Way, a two minute walk to the graveyard where the famous WB Yeats and his wife, George, are buried.
    The cabin is warm, heated by the stove and back boiler. Everything you need to be clean, warm, fed, comfortable is here!

    Where I live has so much to offer, depending on your interests and hobbies. It would be difficult to know what you would learn as we're so different!

    Help

    The help I am looking for is someone with carpentry skills, with your own tools and an imagination. Someone who can think outside of what is 'standard', in certain areas, someone who can make use of existing materials, where possible, and practical.
    I have a cottage that I need to be living in, before the year is out. My time in the cabin is running out! The cottage is just over a mile away from the cabin, it's a stone cottage and very small and pretty, well it will be even prettier.
    So I need solid advice and good skilled help, I have done a lot of work myself, however I lack the knowledge on the important stuff. For example, stud walls, roof joists, roofing a bathroom extension, hanging doors, making a hole in the stone wall for external doors....just a few tasks....I can think of.... interested, sounds like something you can do, sounds like somewhere you can chill after work and explore?

    I really enjoy cooking and baking, I am happy to make sure you have a lovely meal every evening. Once I know you're tastes, I will make sure I have things that you enjoy for making your own breakfasts and lunches.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    If you have your own transport, there is private parking. The sights are too numerous to mention, look up Sligo. Near Northern Ireland too for even more sights!

    I would expect a standard of consideration while living in my home, you would have to like house pets; agree to keeping shared spaces relatively tidy.
