    Hello Workawayers. I'm Jo living in heart of Gascony on France in a lovely house with views of the Pyrenees. I'm looking for two strong men to help with a building assembly project. My 'Homme toutes mains' is unfortunately recovering from medical treatment so can't do the work but will be directing the project. The materials are all here but the muscle isn't. You will have a room each, both with private bathroom. I'm looking for someone within the next 6 weeks and the build will take a week.
    This will suit somebody with an interest in carpentry. Full instruction/direction will be given and tools provided (although it's great if you have your own too). I live on the edge of a small town so all amenities are nearby. I can collect you from Auch train station if you don't have transport.
    Do get in touch if you are interested. I promise you a warm welcome in a warm and comfortable house. My cooking is good and plentiful. You will be well looked after.

    I am a native english speaker (actually from Wales) with basic French language which I am trying hard to improve. I am well travelled and interested in geopolitical news and have really enjoyed discussions over dinner with previous Workaways about their experiences in the countries they have visited or their views on what is going on in the world. There are vegans in my family so I can cater for a vegan/vegetarian diet or any other dietary requirements. The area I live in is full of picturesque places with historical interest. You will have chance to explore and of course the Pyrenees are really not far away for walking and hiking. It will be too cold to use the pool but if wild swimming is your thing we have many beautiful lakes nearby and I can provide paddleboards and kayaks.

    We will be assembling a pre cut Carport and adding roof tiles. It will be a short and interesting project. Carpentry and/or roofing experience and general ability with a screwdriver will make this an ideal project for you. However if you have none of those things you will learn from Mark who is directing the project and is a skilled engineer.

    Exploring the Pyrenees. Train ticket to to Toulouse costs 1EUR. Wonderful opportunity to explore the big city. LOcal rugby matches are plentiful and great entertainment if you enjoy rugby, often with meals provided before the match.
