  • Description

    Description

    Looking for a single person or couple in August.

    We are a french family from France, living in Canada for 4 years now. We have 2 boys and 1 dog. He is Groot!

    We started building our house last year and we still have work to do, especially outside. Our house is riverfront and we have an outside kitchen where we spend most of our summers.

    The main task will to set up our house for spring and get ready for next winter: so clean the garden, cut and stack some wood (we build our house last summer, so there are many trees that need to be chopped), etc. There can be as well home chores (clean the chicken coop) and we have another project to arrange our garden as a playground for kids and other fun areas like a horseshoe or french petanque (google it)

    We also have some indoor works to finish :
    - A bathroom: floor, tiling,
    - Shelving in basement

    For this project, if you are skilled in carpentry, you are very welcome

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We traveled around the world three years ago and visit 11 different countries. So we like to share our experiences with other travelers.
    My husband loves the delicious french meal and always happy to share tips about cooking and of course the meal!
    My kids love learning a new language, they are fluent in English and French, and learning Spanish, but are interesting in learning any new language. Augustin is looking for Japanese (to be able to understand One piece without subtitles) and Pierre is more interested in German. So if you are willing to share your native language with them, they will be thrilled.
