My husband and I own a property in Cape Breton Nova Scotia. It is a 135 years old and it needs work. Currently we do rentals but would like to also open our home to people who want to help us fix up the house. We are only here for the summer, a bit of the fall and then back in the spring. I live here full time but my husband comes on the weekends. We also have a house in Elmsdale, Nova Scotia.
We live right on the Cabot Trail and our home has the best view. We love meeting people from other countries and we always make guests feel at home in our home.
We are offering accomation and food for your help.
Cape Breton is beautiful and you will experience the beautiful landscape and views and Acadian French culture.
We are looking for help in updating the electrical and plumbing as well as help to get the basement upgraded. General plumbing, redoing it and also, redoing all the electrical (upgrading it). The basement needs the new beams and help with the structure.
