Hi, I'm Marianne,
I live in Nelson, BC and I'm looking for some help to finish my son's tree house. We have a platform, which we need to make bigger and then build the actual tree house. Anybody with building skills is very welcome. We all can help, but we need somebody who actually knows what they're doing to do the building...
It's a family home, I'm 50, my husband Doug 54 and our kids are Maya 19 and Jamie 12.
Doug and I and from Europe (Germany and the UK) and we moved here when my son Jamie was exactly 1 year old. We live a simple live, love the outdoors and enjoy the nature playing field this area has to offer.
Babysitting / child care
Travellers would be living as part of our family, sharing the everyday of our lives. As for languages we can offer English and German, the kids are also fluent in French.
We're mainly looking for somebody with carpentry or building skills to help us finish my sons tree house.
English and German
We offer a private room in our home with a shared bathroom.
We live in town, there's a bus service, but I'm also happy to pick up people from the greyhound or the local airport.
It's a 20 minute walk to downtown, with it's eclectic shops, restaurants and coffee shops. Nelson has a vibrant arts scene and is surrounded by lots of natural beauty, if you're the outdoorsy type you'll definitely love it here.
