  • Description



    My profile..omnivore, hetero male. I'm not Vaccinated ,Don't mind if you are or not.
    living in Portugal since 1990, with diverse interests, mostly things 'classic' I have bikes to restore, a boat to maintain, an old stone built cottage and various workshops and outbuildings that need attention, and I have just acquired a huge pile of used mahogany planks, skirting boards, panelling, all needing sorting, de/nailing, to be used for new chicken coops, building a shelter, etc, so I need someone comfortable working with power saws and general woodworking stuff. still there is garden spring cleaning, some housework, perhaps a bit of painting and decorating.
    I have a conservation and restoration business, professionally working with works of art on paper.

    There is a small self contained stone built house ...a bedsit really, self contained but the loo and shower are in a separate building beside your accommodation
    Couldn't care less about your politics, gender, inclinations, religion, eating habits, as long as you don't evangelise about it. Strictly no smoking inside anywhere on the property .Bicycles here, .. I will cook a full meal every evening, or you can share the cooking... and provide basic breakfast and lunch but I wont prepare it for you. 4 hours a day five days a week, You don't work whatever two days a week you choose but still board and lodging is provided. I appreciate my own space so you will not expect me to be host after 9 or so at night. I work here unless out on business maybe once a week. I had to tick a box for how many workawayers I can accept. one, or two if you are a couple or dont mind sharing

    parking by the property is fine but sometimes you might have to move let a tractor go past... I have a large field about 100 metres from the house where the van can be left indefinitely, but no facilities there. but 1 minute walk to the house and work area.
