    Work for August 2020

    We are two artists living in a beautiful forest by the ocean. We are world travelers and enjoy the peaceful lifestyle Galiano island has to offer. We need help to get through the projects.

    The garden fence needs to be extended, kiwi tree needs pruning , garlic planted , help with house and cabin work. Reorganize the studio etc.

    We have a cute little 300 square feet cabin in the forest . We would like to add an extra bedroom and renovate the washrooms. If you have carpentry skills and enjoy wood work we can be the perfect fit for you.

    We live on the the Pacific Ocean in a west coast style house that has 6 bedrooms and 3 washrooms.
    We are offering a perfect setting if you also need some quality time for yourself.

    If you enjoy working with different projects and you are easy going we can be a good match.
    Let us know what is your main skill and if an island lifestyle suit you.

    We live in a big forest with no cougar , no bears and with a lots of beaches to explore.
