Région: ScotlandLooking for help with house restoration - skills needed are practical people to assist with painting, plastering, roofing, carpenters, plumbers and electricians - hands on people. Bruce and Niaill share a large house in Central Scotland - Dundee. We are looking to restore an older property and don't have the necessary skills or experience to tackle on our own - ideal people are probably more mature or certainly with lots of experience in building trades. Always looking for ideas and support to create a sustainable property. Dundee is ideally located for further travel in Scotland and has good road & rail links to reach the countryside - lovely beaches and historic properties are within easy reach - possible easier with own car but many car hire companies around. We are new to Workaway so please email ideas and suggestions
