I am a reniasance man and have a grand array of skills and trades to share with the right persons. This is a wonderful island community of artists and back to the landers, There are many opportunities to meet other interesting humans here.
This house was built in victoria b.c. in 1950. In 1993 I moved it by barge to 10 acres on beautiful denman island, it is still a work in progress in many ways. There are plenty of details to be finished, involving carpentry, plaster and mosiac work, painting cleaning and generally helping to finish restoration of this fairy tale home.
2 rooms in the spectacular house and a 1947 bus that will soon be a comfortable dwelling
My place is surrounded by 400 acres of old growth forested park land and miles of remote beaches with whales, sea lions, eagles and lots of oysters clams and fishes.I hope to find someone who has rudimentary work skills in construction/renovation/finishing of unique old houses, and who will fit in to our quirky artistic community...
