  • Description


    My Name is Helen and I live in Beautiful North Wales. I love the outdoors and enjoy doing outdoor activities like sailing ,and hill walking all year round and water sports in the summer.
    I now live alone, my daughter Faith started University this Autumn. Both my sons are back in the area and live close by, One had been travelling for 2 years. They, like me love outdoor activities and have a great life here also.
    At home I have one collie Paddy and Sugar the cat.
    When I brought this property it came with 6 ruined quarry men's retirement cottages.They are very small (one up, one down) and in a row. Over the years I have totally renovated two of the cottages making one house which I have recently moved out of. I now rent that and my original cottage as holiday lets. I now live in my 3rd cottage that I have totally renovated from a roofless ruin and I am in the process of finishing it off.
    So I have become a self taught builder. I love it. I have also recently roofed the last ruin and there it work to be done there.
    I love having workaways for the company as much as for the help. Working can be fun with the right people in the right circumstances and I also think living here in North Wales is great and will want you to enjoy that also, Many a workaway have gone home knowing how to sail, plus most have enjoyed some good hill days with my friends and I.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    If you are into outdoor activities this area is a mecca for them. I am very well connected with active friends and have the equipment for many sports.

    I used to teach DIY (Do It Yourself) for ladies. I would hope to inspire either sex to 'have a go', think outside the box and hopefully you will pick up some building skills from me and hopefully, me from you.I totally love having workaways because I always learn so much from them in so many ways. About their countries, lives, get ideas , ways of doing things, it is a sharing thing.

    I always have several projects on the go. I have a patio I need to complete, I would like it to be arty. Inside job is making a funky staircase out of plywood.(done) I need to remove lots of soil and rubble (Done), good old manual job, and point a wall (I will teach you) still more pointing to do. Now I want to do a funky arty floor.
    The help will be weather and ability dependent. It's fun, you don't need any particular skills. Being practical and fit will help and abit arty would be lovely. New ideas are always welcome.

    You will live with me and the pets. Have your own bedroom and just muck in. I am easy going and laid back. The cottage is cosy and I think I am good at making people feel at home. I also have a great social life and you are invited to join in with everything. All my workaways have really enjoyed walking, canoeing, sailing with me and also all the BBQs , dancing, supper clubs etc.
