  • Description

    Description

    We are a British family living in an old farmstead near Sarlat-la-Canéda in Dordogne. We have a 7-year-old daughter, 2 dogs and 4 chickens. Will is a cartoonist, games designer, graphic novelist and singer-songwriter and I am a painter. We are constantly working on our garden and property and we have lots of jobs for Workawayers to do.

    Our areas of expertise are moving to France, renovating property, painting (oils), drawing, graphic novels, guitar, song-writing, etc. We are laid back, creative and slightly disorganised but we are trying to become efficient! We have to much to do so we need help!

    Aide

    We are renovating a farmstead so there is loads to do! We need help in our garden (weeding, mowing, using a strimmer and clearing a copse), help with basic DIY like painting and decorating, and more physical work like clearing out our barn, putting up a perimeter fence, chiselling rendering from stone walls, helping replace roof tiles, and possibly even helping to create a pool or vegetable garden. We also have 4 chickens to feed and 2 labradors to walk.
