    Hi, we are renovating a property in Santiago, there is lots of work. General building or decorating skills would be great because we are constructing and decorating a lot. If you’re good with wood (some basic carpentry skills) you would be warmly welcome. But if you’re handy and willing it’s a start. Our front and back garden would also appreciate help, again, if you have knowledge or are willing that would be great. We have two bedrooms which need help decorating.
