  • Beschreibung


    We are a happy family of 2 parents and 2 young girls, 3 1/2 and 5 years old. We are looking for some help during the summer months to spend as much time as possible in the countryside and at the lakeshore, at our tiny house near Thetford Mines, Quebec. Because both parents are professionals who'd like to take home office to the cabin, the ideal would be to find someone who loves the simple life and the great outdoors to share some memorable summer moments together and help with caring for the kids and some household duties during our joint working periods (mostly from Mondays to Fridays, from 8am to 1pm) from mid-July to the end of August.

    As you will share our family life, you'll be able to enjoy summer at a lakeshore in the countryside, living outdoor, speaking French/English/German with us, playing with our girls, enjoying the fire pit during the evening, enjoying the stars, the fauna and flora of a lake surrounded by forest, sharing our simple life at our tinyhouse... During the afternoons you'll be free to stay with us or take your time off, explore the area (Chaudière-Appalache), go rock climbing (indoor or outdoor), hiking, sailing, kiting, visiting Quebec or do whatever else you would like to do.

  • Arbeit


    When both parents are working, the workawayer would have to take care of the girls, from their breakfast to their nap time, including the preparation of their snack and lunch. Both girls enjoy being in the countryside, playing on our ground, bicycling on the pathway, walking in the forest, swimming in the lake, sailing in their boat... In the afternoon, one of the 2 parents will take over and you'll be able to enjoy your free time as you want.

    When parents are on vacation, the workawayer is expected to help with gardening or small construction projects, grocery and meal preparation, etc...

  • Unterkunft


    Since all 4 of us are living in a 24'x8' single space tinyhouse, you can either bring your own tent/camper or we can provide you with a tent for sleeping. There are plenty of nice camping spots on the property.

    We are drinking spring water which we buy in town, drawing our water for dishes and shower from a dwell, using a composting toilet, and profiting from the warm water of the lake to wash ourselves. We have a small fridge, a small oven and a small cooking surface, all electric, and finally a small propane BBQ. We do our laundry in town. In short everything is of tinyhouse living / luxury camping style with a low footprint.

    Our tinyhouse is close to Thetford Mines, Quebec. The county is Chaudière-Appalaches and has much to offer for the countryside lovers, parks, mountains, rivers... where it's possible to walk, mountain bike, hike, rock climb, swim, sail, kite, fish, kayak, etc...

    Transportation wise, a car is definitely a plus to get around. Thetford offers a taxi-bus on its territory with a stop 3mins away from our property, and a daily bus goes to Quebec City in 2h, departs in the morning, and returns at the end of afternoon. By car, Quebec city is 1h away, Sherbrooke 1.5h and Montreal 3h away.

    Our tiny house being a trailer, our ground is equipped with a 30A/110V and a regular 15A/110V power outlets. Also the dwell manual water pump is very convenient to draw water to fill buckets, or even to connect a 2'' hose to it. The water of the lake is really nice to swim in. Note that we use a compostable toilet. All washing or cleaning soaps must be of the outdoors camping type, i.e. absolutely biodegradable.
