  • Description


    We are Jorge & Annika! We moved to Salt Spring Island from Vancouver in 2016 to realize our vision of an artistically intentional and community-oriented way of life surrounded by nature. Jorge is a residential designer from Brazil and we restored our 1938 farmhouse where we live on the 5 acre property before designing & building the beautiful gallery space that is part of our Farm, Gallery and Bed & Breakfast. We have two young girls (7 years and 4.5 years old) and we both work "from home", (in the gallery on the property). We are a short 10 minute walk from the busy little town of Ganges. We are looking for someone to live on our property, close to our home, in a tiny cabin that functions as our b&b in the fall/spring/summer months.

    We are looking for someone with carpentry skills only at this time.

    We hope to have someone live in our tiny house here on Salt Spring Island while doing an addition to the outside of it on a pre-existing deck. My husband is an architectural designer who designed the simple addition and we have all the wood. This can be a 2-3 month project/stay. It is only suitable to a single person with building/carpentry experience.
