We live in the forest 10 km from town. The house has large gardens and we need help renovating neglected gardens . This would include, raking, digging, repairing rock walls, preparing the garden for planting and perhaps some house painting and window cleaning on the house. I am a retired schoolteacher and my husband is a helicopter ski guide. Our adult son is also a guide and no longer lives at home.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
We speak English and French. We live a mountain and river lifestyle.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Rebuilding rock walls. Clearing brush and trees. Aerating and seeding the lawn. Possibly some painting.
We live in the forest beside the river where you can fish or paddle. We are on a rural property so having a car might be nice for you. There is a bus to town.
This host offers a language exchange
I speak English and French, but love to explore other languages. I am trying to learn Spanish.
Loft apartment above the garage with a small kitchenette. Toilet, bath, shower and full kitchen are in the house. Appropriate for a couple.
We will share meals. You can also store food and prepare meals in the loft.
We are 10 kilometres from town (Nelson, BC). There is a public bus 6 days per week, but not at night. We live on a steep forested property by the river where we canoe. It is a true Canadian rural lifestyle where village or city dwellers could feel isolated. I go to town often to see friends and to shop for food.
