    Description

    We are a couple who live in greater London, Uxbridge. We are both designers and love to travel and learn about other cultures.

    We needed someone for about 2 weeks to help with some DIY projects in September 2019. You should know some basic carpentry and are comfortable with working with wood and building simple things with screws and drill:

    We wanted to make 1) very simple box bedframe 2) a wooden cover for our bins 3) a simple large box for growing vegetable in the garden

    Other jobs might also include painting, gardening, cleaning and putting frames and mirrors up in the house (nothing too hard). If you have that experience please do let me know!

    We ask for 3-4 hours of help per day and then the rest of the time is free for you to do whatever you want to in London.

    You are more than welcome to stay with us in a spacious private room. It is a friendly home environment and would love to welcome you :) As we are a vegetarian household we ask to use the kitchen only for vegetarian cooking :)

    Our house is in a quiet neighbourhood called Hillingdon. It is 55minutes into central London and close to some really beautiful local country side areas too.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are both british and born and raised in London. Onkar has Indian heritage and I am from East africa (indian) but born in UK. We have lived in different countries and travelled/worked around the world. Being around like-minded people we can enjoy some lunches together and think it would be a great cultural exchange. We both work so we can get quite busy and might not be able to socialist so much however you will definitely have loads of free time to explore UK and we have tons of recommendations we can give!
