I’m a 46 year old dad of two young adults finishing university. I have worked a crazy and busy life. I am taking it more slowly now and want to do this dream project on a family owned waterfront property.
I worked in many fields all across North America. I have travelled mostly for pleasure to European and Central American countries.
I have been characterized as a true rural French speaking Canadian. It would be my pleasure to pass on any knowledge or stories that could interest you.
We’ll definitely be having a beer and a good meal after our days work.
DIY and building projects
You would probably be staying in a off grid tiny house while you are here. Located directly on the majestic Ottawa River. I will provide food / meals. You can get a few days off weekly to go out and explore the area.
You’ll have access to my kayak and I can provide « some » transportation.
I have worked in entertainment, owned a restaurant and music venue, I fish, hunt and trap if that interests you. I can show you things and tell you stories about it.
You’ll be able to hang out with my friends and family to learn and see what life in a small bilingual Quebec rural area is all about.
I am taking a one year break from the hustle and bustle of regular life ti build my own house.
I will be building my own home from May to October 2022. I have built a few buildings before. But it’s nearly impossible to do alone. Need more hands lol. I have led a successful and very diversified career and life. Proud dad if two young adults. I have sold the Big House and will be building a new small house for myself. The design will allow me to lock it up when I feel like it to go out and continue to travel the world 🌍🙂.
If you’re a manual type person and have used a hammer and power tools before, then, you are more then welcome to spend some time with me building a house.
A tiny house. Off grid.
Access to a shower, outhouse and regular bathroom.
