  • Description


    I am Helen, originally from England but have been living abroad since 2002, first in France and now Spain. My grown up children Joe and Faridah are here sometimes. We have two Staffordshire Bull Terriers who love welcoming our guests.. We have been renovating an oldish house for 4 years now.

    This would be a good place to be locked down if that happens again this year as the house is big and the beach is close by...

    This year we will be doing some work in the garden constructing raised beds and inside
    , renovating a bathroom.
    We are not looking for any particular skills but there will be a lot of manual work and carrying materials, mixing cement and general stuff like that.

    We are 15 mins walking to the amazing town and beaches of Sitges. We are 40 mins by train from Barcelona.
    Learning opportunities this year will be foundations, mixing concrete, rendering, and ferrocementing. Also plumbing and platerboarding.

    We have been renovating an oldish house for the past four years. This year I think we will mainly concentrate on the garden, rebuilding the shed in blocks, digging footings, rendering, plastering carpentery, general building etc If you have relevant skills that would be useful, but if not there is more labouring than anything else.
