    Description

    We are in our late-60's and live on a ½ acre Just outside of small town (pop 35,000). We are no longer able to do everything ourselves. There are some great plans and projects, but we need help to make them happen!
    Our Glamp (That is glamour camping! ) is almost ready! In June we need help put the tent on the poles! A large tent on wooden poles with a wooden floor! In April we made the floor, now we have the main poles up. A very cool project!
    Now we are building an outside bathroom! Wooden walls so carpentry skills would be good, but enthusiasm is just as good! Help is needed June 1st to end of July, then again in the Fall. Interested in a winter stay? Will will need a couple to house-sit for 3 months.
    We enjoy sharing a tolerant lifestyle, and run two vacation rentals with a clothing optional swimming pool which is open from May - September!
    Matthew is a retired architect who takes a hands on approach to life, Jane is an experienced gardener with her own style. She loves to cook too. Workaways are totally treated as a part of the family. We are a quiet couple at home, enjoying evenings with a book, playing games or watching British TV shows or documentaries. But we also enjoy getting together with a varied group of friends, and Workaways will always be included in such gatherings!

    We like to live well, to enjoy the good things in life, but keep a very economic budget, so we can also have money to travel! We would like to share some of these ideas and our lifestyle.

    We like to start work early and finish early so there's lots of time in the afternoon to enjoy. This is a good area to walk, hike, kayak and bike, and an excellent climbing area at Skaha Bluffs, in addition to the lake and vineyards that make this area so special.
    There are bikes available for your use if you would like. We are out of town a bit, but it is a very easy walk or bike to downtown. Apex is nearby. It is a great ski hill but in summer all the runs become awesome mountain biking and hiking trails. In ski season there challenging runs, cross-country and snow-shoeing trails.
