    Taking up a concrete floor and laying a new floor with under floor heating in the barn
    Mixing cement
    Hanging Joists
    Dry walling

    If a couple help with cooking would be grand.

    We enjoy relaxing in the evening with a glass of wine or beer, discussing the day and having a laugh. Note: There is no use of a computer so you must bring your own.
