  • Description


    Hi I'm Ana.
    Mami of Lula, Jorge (the Parson Jack Russell Terrier) & we just acquired a Podenco puppy named Delila or Lila for short.

    Anyone travelling who is skilled or retired with building, carpentry, plumbing or electrical skills please volunteer with us!

    We are a single parent family, in the SIerra de las Nieves, just outside Coin, Malaga

    Been let down halfway through the renovation of a truck we need to live on in the next few months and I can't afford to pay someone much a second time unfortunately.

    The water tanks needs configuring and connecting, as does the battery and solar power system and finally a seating area to be constructed using an existing sofa bed and materials we have.
    There are also two locks to fit on side entrance (fiamma) and rear door (van lock) and the fridge freezer needs to be brought through the window and fixed in place.

    I can assist with bed, board, a fully stocked kitchen & transport if required.
    Please DM if you are available or know anyone 🙏
    Come and join our family and workaway with us!!

    If you are or you know/hear of anyone suitable message us.

    Preferably high level of English.

    •You would be required to :-

    Organise your own visa if required, travel and insurance.

    Hope to hear from you soon
    All the best
    Lula, Jorge, Delila & Ana
