Post Posted: Tue Nov 04, 2008 9:13 pm

I have a house near Obidos on the Silver Coast. Does anyone know of any one for odd jobs, putting things on walls fixing trellis basic odd job person.
In addition if anyone knows of plumbers, electricians or carpenters please let me know.
I have a great local builder but he is so busy I wait months for small jobs and I am paying more than I ould here in the UK.

Hi, I am a carpenter with 20 years experience in the UK and, for the last four years, Portugal. I live just a couple of miles from Obidos and am sure I could help. A well as carpentry I am a good all-rounder and have a lot of experience in carrying out ancillary building trades such as plumbing and electrics - the inevitable consequence of spending time in this business! I charge 10 euros an hour

If I can help please don't hesitate to contact me on connal.vickers @ sapo.pt.
