  • Description


    We are a family who live in a big old Victorian house in Leicester. My family consists of my wife and I and our boys. Our boys are 24,22 and foster son 21 .We also have an 88 year old living with us as part of our family...he originally owned the house and gave it to us to restore...what a job ! There are other houses too including a farm at the sea's literally on the beach !
    There are also 4 acres of ground to maintain along with pigs a horse, guinea fowl,chickens,doves ,peacocks and our dogs !
    That's just our animals....we also have several badger setts,foxes bats and various rare species...stag beetles,great crested newts etc. Our house is entirely heated by log burners and we recycle everything .There are a few outbuildings and a woodwork shop along with various "projects" I need assistance with... I even built my own car, which is awesome lol...well I think it is anyway !
    We could use some help in all aspects of building , gardening and general maintenance. I currently do everything on my own and it takes forever...we love our way of life but it's quite alternative some would say !
    It would be a pleasure for us to share our culture with you and we would welcome the chance to learn more about your country and culture !
    We would love and welcome anyone to come along and give us a hand !
