    Descripción

    We are a family of six.

    Our family structure is complex, with mum and 2 dads living together. We have three autonomously home educated children - one is studying for his A Levels in maths, chemistry and physics (16 years); another is in his sixth year of primary education (11 years) and a baby in his second year of life, all male.

    We are planning to convert a historic farmhouse in the Scottish countryside to a modern eco-friendly home.

    We are a family of gamers. We have many games consoles and enjoy playing table top role playing games as well as card games and board games.

    We are wanting to sort and decorate the family home, finish DIY projects, fix the garden up and finish building a tree house, all while keeping the younger boys entertained.

    The older boys are learning to play drums, piano and acoustic guitar including music theory. We are willing to consider a musician who can continue transferring these skills.

    Our 16 year old is wishing to learn Japanese, we would consider someone who is able to speak and write fluently to spend time with him.

    We will only consider non-smokers.
