    We are looking for "out of the box free spirits", with strong arms, a happy heart and big smile and broad imaginations
    We have now 3 straw bale buildings mostly completed. To finalize completion now, inside and outside, skilled construction helpers, like carpentry, stucco, plumbing, electric, As well we plan a major general construction material clean up of posts, beams and more and so prepare firewood at the same time. We also plan to implement broader "Fire Smart" clean up in the surrounding forest and will build a few ponds around the houses ans so also prepare for firewood for the next winter season. We are now listed hosts with 2 beautiful guest suites and so will need some help there as well,

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Over the years we ourselves have traveled a lot vising most of Central and South America and of course Europe before immigrating to Canada in 1979. Since we are both self employed and thought, we have loads of personal life experience
    to share, creating what you will see with us, on an "outside the box" concept and vision, a never ending "learning curve"
    for all involved, on a daily basis, Please do check the Almighty Summit Estate face book entries from many past international volunteers here with us, as well check our YOU TUBE documentation

    We have created a very cozy and funky 6 private bedroom volunteer chalet, kitchen, bath living room bar, balcony
    and decks, set amidst our surrounding alpine meadows. There you will, as a team, do needed housekeeping chores.
    We expect a minimum stay of one week. As a volunteer with a driver licence you may help us to drive our foster kids
    in care to town if needed.
    On Weekends you are free, hitching, to explore the Okanagan Valley, or catch a ride, when we are on the road...

    What else ...

    Felicitations and compliments for you, to finding our most unique mountaintop private lifestyle and hospitality venue.
    The journey of life is a daily challenge, one day at the time we 100 % dream the dream, dare the dare and do the do.

    You are invited to live your dreams, ambitions and exploring new ideas, here in BC Canada with us, you will find answers.
    You can hike through quaint alpine meadows with forever mountain and valley views, away from it all, you have arrived
    You will be very surprised by the eclectic flair, cozy ambiance and decor of all we have created here, you will become part

    We are halfway between Osoyoos and Rock Creek, above Anarchist Summit, is a 500 acre mountaintop nature reserve.

    Our alternate ECO straw bale design and construction concept and methods is a creative work in progress. To date many international working travelers, became part of our great vision. Off grid, with solar power only, recycled building components, every guest was fascinated about the cozy feel in our different buildings. The shared meals have allowed great conversations and friendships to develop. Do come and stay with us, as long you'd like, as well bring your friends.
    We will need many creative and willing hands to become part of our unusual project. As it stands, every day we all have learned something new, a never ending "Learning Curve" and have fun with "Murphy's Law" daily rules, challenges..

    Stunning photo documentations and memories are shared, you will love and appreciate the international flair and mix
    of our globe trotting traveling "addicts". 1 cute cat, 2 dogs will greet you. This year we will be here from May to fall 2018.

    We love to hear and welcome you, having volunteered ourselves in Brazil and Australia...story time ahead.....Ulric
