  • Beschreibung


    We are a family of 5 Chris the dad, Marysol the mom, Sol 4 and Luna 1 year old (with buena our Mexican dog) living half time on unique wooden ship in the fishing/surfing town of Ucluelet and half time on remote island in Tofino. We have been a nomadic family for a while and loving the lifestyle here. You can check us out at whereisthehorse.com
    We live on the edge of the pacific amount parks, trails, beaches, and secret little paradises in the heart of First Nation communities. We live close to nature and try to be outside everyday. The winter time can be rainy, but so lovely in the forest or surfing. The island is bare and needs looooots of time and arm juice... we would like to transform it in Eden garden. There is 3 cabins to be fixed.... roof leaking, gardes to take care, kids to watch, cooking... art projects with garbage to collect, fun to have, fishing...
    we are simple people that live with basics of life...
    we sing and take time to enjoy nature

  • Arbeit


    The boat and the island needs DIY maintenance and being a full time mom and a working dad let us without time to do those work. So we want to share the beautiful lifestyle this nice town offers with a workawayer who has experience with wood related projects/carpenter. The tasks that needs to be done : wooden railing, drawers, bunk bed, corner sink, some finishings here and there, roof to change, garden to create, kids to watch, meals to cook, fun to have... The person will be living in bare island in cabin to renovate or tent... we don’t work when it’s too rainy and so we will be sharing space together... We would commit by projects and renew if there is a good fit. I would cook extra for you most of the time but you know, life can bring surprises time to time and the roles can change...
    We were thinking about 20h a week of work per week to get the job done.

    As I mentioned, the person will be staying in sometimes on island sometimes on the boat it depends what’s the fit... It’s great for a while The thing is that is to know is the showers are either once in a while at the dock or you can use wipes or whatever. while COVID, the showers are shut and we shower in harbour now... it’s 1 $ for 3minutes.
    As I mentioned, you are welcome to eat with us when you work On the vessel I’ll get extra ready for you and on island we tend to share meals...
