Hey there! I'm Julie! I just bought an house by myself in the middle of the woods. I would eventually like to have an autosufficient lifestyle. The house needs more love than I was expecting and I would accept some help. I don't have a lot of experience with house renovation, but I am determined to learn and do everything by myself. You want to help and learn with me? You have some skills to share? All right! You are welcome!

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I can help with french lessons, writing poetry or art projects. I am a good friend as well :) As I live far and alone in the woods, you will discover a silence and tranquility that is unique, calming and perfect for meditation. Long walk in nature to ground yourself, homemade maple syrup, authentic Quebec food... what more could you ask for? ;)
I have many projects I would like to accomplish. For example, the fences need to be straighten up, I would like to build a permanent greenhouse with old windows (the frame is already existing), the garden needs some care, I need to change the asphalt clapboard on the roof of the garage, and many more little projects like this for hours of fun! Haha! During winter, it is possible to help with snow removal, meals, cleaning, small inside works... Because I am a busy woman, also working full time, you will often need to have initiative and be autonomous.

You will have a room for yourself on the second floor of the house including 2 double bed and a balcony with a view on the lake and forest all around. Next to the room, a private space for you to relax, read, study, send emails, etc. In brief, all the second floor! And of course, access to the full house: kitchen, bathroom (bath and shower), living room with the wood stove, garage... everywhere except my private bedroom!
Internet wifi is included.
*Note that there's no cellphone satellite reception, but I have a domestic phone line for Canada calls.
The house is very isolated from the city. If you don't have a car, you may feel stuck in the wood as there's no bus or taxi coming here and the road is not always practicable. Winter is hard here so prepare your car to it. Of course I can drive you in town if needed, but the best is to have your own transport to enjoy local sights and activities.
