Trade my renovation and DIY skill for housing

I am planning to move to STX at the end of July. I spent 3 months on the island back in 2012 and wish to return full time. Seeings how I have a few weeks before this expected move, I thought I might give this message board a try. My professional background is in the building material/construction industry and I was considering the possibility of finding someone who may be interested in trading my experience with home improvement and renovation for short term, possibly longer term, housing. I am open to discussing individually with anyone who may be interested about any specific scope of work needed and estimated duration. I enjoy all DIY work. I am a friend of Bill W’s and am hoping this board may open up an opportunity. Thanks!

I am open to considering STT or STJ as well.

Hi Bill,
are you still looking? I have a house on the East End, currently tenanted, but there is a small apartment below which is vacant. it needs some sprucing up, and the house needs to be painted on the outside, but it is yours if you want it!
