    Description

    Hiya! We are Abril and Thom, from Argentina and Wales. We have refurbished a traditional Welsh cottage house from the 1800's ... and there is still some work to do so we need your help!
    At the moment the work is mainly some painting in the house, general house maintenance (cleaning and tidying up), and working on the garden!

    We could do with carpenters or people experienced in wood work!

    We have recently adopted Willow the cat :)

    A lot of things you can help us with

    -General house maintenance, such as cleaning, hoovering, doing dishes, cooking.
    -Painting in the house, sanding and waxing stairs and wood flooring
    -We could do with carpenters or people experienced in wood work to build "built-in" storage units



    - A lot of hands-on work *might not happen until next spring*... We need to work on the garden. This could mean levelling the ground, carrying out and filling the garden with chippings, or making the decking.
    We also have land in front of our house, that needs clearing
