  • Description

    Description

    We are restoring a neglected, old (for Australia), Catholic Convent Complex which comprises of 3 large buildings. We are looking for active suitable people/couples with a love for restoration projects who have any handyman trade, painter, brick layer, renderer, gardener or plasterer. All the skills we need 😁

    Knowledge of antiques would also assist us!

    We desperately need help with restoring the beautiful old cedar windows & doors which have over 110 years old & have multiple layers of paint on them!

    We purchased the buildings full of eclectic curio's and antiques and would love assistance in identifying and sorting out these items. The majority are USA based antiques.

    We are situated in the beautiful Rural Town of Inverell located in the Regional area of the New England - North West area of New South Wales.

    We can offer a fully furnished apartment if required.

    Big Sky Country! Open spaces, no traffic jams, no traffic lights! Great shopping facilities and an economical lifestyle...
    The town offers great opportunities to join the local Rugby side (boys & girls) or Rugby League, Aussie Rules, Netball etc etc - we have a great sporting town. The great cycle race Grafton to Inverell finishes outside of our buildings!
