My husband and I live in Vancouver and have had a cabin on 22 acres of beautiful, private land at the north arm of Shuswap Lake for 20 years. The property is off the grid with natural artesian spring water and hydro and solar power. It is a perfect place to enjoy nature and wildlife.... bears, deer, mouse, bald eagles, etc. with cross country skiing, snow shoeing, winter fishing and hiking available. We are now in the process of building three more wood cabins.

Help around the house
Travellers would be able to experience life in the Canadian wilderness and learn something about living off the grid.
Any carpentry skills would be an asset but are not essential. There is also some landscaping work in progress and general maintenance, including painting.
Accommodation would in the existing cabin which is very comfortable and has the normal amenities of hot and cold water and flushing toilet.
The Shusawp is a beautiful area of British Columbia to explore and is approximately half way between Vancouver and the rockies. If your dates correspond with when we are going to the Shuswap it is possible we could give you a ride from Vancouver, otherwise if you don't have transport we can pick you up from Kamloops.
