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 carries out painting, decorating and interior and garden design; she has qualifications in Fine Art and Design and Museology (study of Museums!) and also works as an exhibition designer for museums and visitor attractions.
