Hi! We are a family of four (two boys; 8 and 11) living off-grid, remotely in a tiny home on the coast of British Columbia. Our home is on a beach, a 2 hour boat ride from the nearest town. We are building a 44ft sailing catamaran and need help in our workshop for the final push to our expected launch this coming fall. We live a very active, outdoorsy lifestyle.
DIY and building projects
We have a lot of fun: our days are jam-packed. We have built a network of hiking trails behind our place, we have a lake within 2km for swimming at the end of a hot day. We have kayaks, rowboats and dinghy sail boats to play with, the ocean and the mountains to explore. Although we live remotely, we are very social with our community of out-islanders, often meeting up for hikes, camp-outs, picnics etc.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for someone with carpentry, composite or boat building skills who would like to assist on the project and who appreciates the meditative aspects of sanding. Tasks may vary depending on the days' activities. It's not rocket surgery; attitude trumps experience!
A guest cabin with a bed and woodstove. Outhouses and outdoor shower.
If you are interested in alternative lifestyles, off-grid living, boating or boatbuilding, camping etc. this may be the place for you. Our place is water-access only so you will have to depend on us for transportation. We typically re-supply in town every 2-4 weeks.
Cell and internet service is patchy....it usually works at some point in the day but isn't strong enough to send or receive large data files.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
