    In early 2018 we added a twelve unit building on-site that is fully furnished with 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a laundry room. We plan to have these units fully operational by August 1st, 2018.

    Also we have recently purchased a 110 year old fishing stage in English Harbor East, Fortune Bay, NL. Our goal is to completely renovate this building by the end of 2018, and ultimately make this space available for our workers/guests. If you are interested in a remote retreat and/or helping near the ocean we could use your help!
