  • Description


    My husband and I own a custom woodworking business. We build custom furniture and do many other artistic projects with wood. We never do the same thing twice so we are always learning as well! We would love to send our workawayers home with some woodworking skills they will be able to bring with and utilize anywhere their travels take them!! There are over 70 artist that display in our small wood working gallery. Getting to meet these individuals is always an experience. Artist generally love to talk and teach!! We want to share these and many other experiences with our workaway family.

    We will supply dinner and have a clean camper trailer with kitchen and washroom facilities so there is some privacy as well. We expect a minimum 7 day stay. 4-5 days of help for 4-5 hrs each day then 2 days to adventure around the beautiful Columbia valley!!

    Looking for help with woodworking, renovations around our home and gardening. We have also just purchased a new property that we plan on moving the shop to in the winter. This is the property that the accommodations are on so depending on the talents and desires of the workawayers there are more domestic things that can be done here too like gardening and cooking for the group.
