  • Description


    We are a retired couple living in Nova Scotia, Canada, on a scenic 30 acre peace of land, which we are in the process of developing, we built two dome houses, the small one needs to be finished and the landscaping is our spring / summer project. Our property is bordered by a river and on the lake, our swimming pool in the summer, which are sunny and warm, we,re into boating, fishing and other water activities, the fall time here is very colorful and mild, we enjoy healthy food, bake bread and meals in our outdoor wood fired oven, and live the good live with lots of fun to go with it, often in the evening we enjoy a campfire under the stars with story telling and music, lots of laughs in pleasant company,
    we enjoy our work and the many diverse projects.
