  • Description


    We are a busy family of five, with teenagers. We have two houses we are renovating (one in Kingston and one in Philadelphia.) We enjoy sailing as a family, and have boats available to use, and are located less than a five minute drive from Lake Ontario. We are also a less than a five minute drive to downtown Kingston. Kingston's downtown is a great place to hangout, if it's watching movies in the market square, swimming at our beaches, catching live music or grabbing a coffee and watching the world go by. Looking for help with our backyard landscaping project.
