Hello, we are a bilingual family (me Marco and my spouse Rebecca).
I, Marco, have been working with furniture almost all my life (for now 30 years). I repair, sell and transport furniture. I also have 2 properties that I have to maintain but I simply do not have enough time to do everything. I love cooking for others and meeting new people so I thought I could give it a try.
My spouse, Rebecca, is a student in University. She studies in management. She helps me sell my furniture.
We both want to be able to live at our cottage house in Entrelacs in a few years. Out cottage house is big. The structure is solid but it hasn’t been maintained and we have to rebuild Some of the walls, take care of the roof and many other things.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
If you come to our cottage, you will be surounded with trees. There is also a river right next to us (2 minute walk). You’ll be able to learn about quebec’s culture and eat traditionnal quebecois food. We can also teach you french or english. And I think we are a great stepping stone to Montreal because we have lots of connections.
We need someone who has a bit of experience in renovations and DIY. If you have experience with at least one of these things, please contact us.
