  • Description


    I am renovating a small Vermont cabin on two acres with a brook bordering two sides and am looking for help with the renovation (no carpentry, electrical, plumbing, etc. experience needed) and with landscaping improvements. The house is in Wells, Vermont which is halfway between Manchester, Vermont and Lake George, New York. It is in the Mettawee Valley south of Lake Champlain with views of the Vermont Green Mountains and the Adrondack Mountains of New York and close to skiing, hiking, lakes, and rivers.

    Retired entrepreneur now exploring my artistic side, I love to teach and share my life experience.

    I have been involved with the history and culture of the Mettawee Valley and served on the boards of two local museums and enjoy sharing my love and knowledge of the area with workers.
