We are continuing the legacy and love of our Dad, Ulric "The Mountain Man" who passed away suddenly on Jan 31, 2022. We will be keeping our beautiful mountain open from May - October this year and would love some helping hands to come to join us to keep his property alive and filled with laughter, joy, and new memories.
We have a beautiful 500-acre mountaintop property, it is off the grid, solar power
only, eco straw bale designs. He has always thought and lived "outside the box" and we invite you to unlimited loads of fun, to become genuinely creative with us, being the historic first pioneer settlers up here at our 1360 meters elevation dream property.
This summer we are needing a few volunteers, we would like our Workawayers to stay a minimum of 2 weeks. We have room for 4 people., couples or singles.
We will be needing happy helping hands on several projects over this time. Property clean-up, landscaping, painting, yard work, cleaning, etc.
It is an eclectic, eccentric property that is away from it all, you feel free and alive when you are with us. Please reach out if spending a month in mountain paradise suits you.

"Over the years we ourselves have traveled a lot vising most of Central and South America and of course Europe before immigrating to Canada in 1979. Since we are both self employed and thought, we have loads of personal life experience
to share, creating what you will see with us, on an "outside the box" concept and vision, a "never ending learning curve"
Ulric, The Mountain Man
We are looking for "out of the box free spirits", with strong arms, a happy heart and big smile and broad imaginations.
We have two beautiful rooms in our upper house. You will have access to your own summer living area with breathtaking views of the Cascade Mountain range and the most beautiful sunset you have ever seen.
We are hoping for a minimum stay of a two-week stay. On Weekends you are free to explore the Okanagan Valley. We are happy to have our volunteers catch a ride with us to town when we go.
"Felicitations and compliments for you, to finding our most unique mountaintop private lifestyle.
The journey of life is a daily challenge, one day at the time we 100 % dream the dream, dare the dare and do the do". In memory of Ulric, The Mountain Man
You are invited to live your dreams, ambitions and exploring new ideas, here in BC Canada with us, you will find answers.

We are halfway between Osoyoos and Rock Creek, at 6080 CROWSNEST HIGHWAY 3, above Anarchist Summit, at an elevation of 1365 meters our 480 acre mountaintop nature reserve and beautiful family paradise
Our alternate ECO straw bale design and construction concept and methods is a creative work in progress. To date many international working travelers, became part of our great vision. Off grid, with solar power only, recycled building components, every guest was fascinated about the cozy feel in our different buildings. The shared meals have allowed great conversations and friendships to develop. Do come and stay with us, as long you'd like, as well bring your friends.
We will need many creative and willing hands to become part of our unusual project. As it stands, every day we all have learned something new, a never ending "Learning Curve" and have fun with "Murphy's Law" daily rules, challenges..
Stunning photo documentations and memories are shared, you will love and appreciate the international flair and mix
of our globe trotting traveling "addicts". 1 cute cat, 2 dogs will greet you.
We love to hear and welcome you,
Tessina (Ulric's Daughter) Ghitta (my mom and Ulric's beautiful wife) and In memory of Ulric, our Maintain Man
