I’m Roger Carpenter and I’ve been The Faringdon Handyman since 2019. I am a capable handyman competent in work in the home and garden. I trained and worked in engineering, fabrication and tool use in the RAF for 22 years; I have 30+ years of DIY skills. I particularly enjoy bespoke projects where I need to work out how to do something. My wife Faith runs her own painting, decorating and interior design business, Plan and Paint. Qualified in Fine Art and Design and Museology (study of Museums!), she was previously an exhibition designer for museums and visitor attractions. We work together on some projects.
