Katy, Lloyd, kids
Located on Random Island, at the end of the road, on the edge of pristine wilderness and ocean. We are a young happy family with 3 robust, delightful daughters aged 6, 4, and 2.
We have a beach facing property on a fjord, during the summer months there are whales and eagles on our doorstep. We are slowly becoming more self sufficient setting up a homestead style of living. We have a dog, a cat, two milking goats and chickens.
We have been hosting with workaway for three years before the pandemic and have really enjoyed the company of all our hostees! We have made great progress on our property and projects over the last two years and could not have done it without the help of our guests!
We are really appreciate the shared experience of work and play we get from hosting travelers making their life's story's.
We are also busy with our adventure tourism business which involves snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, boat trips, and need help with the homestead and projects we have on the go. We make and up cycle materials and find thrifty and holistic ways to do things whenever we can. We farm, we forage and we try to be self sufficient. We are both travelers with itchy feet and love the company of workaways.
When you stay with us you are part of the family. Especially because we have energetic children our house is not a meticulous well organized eat off the floor kind of setup, and it is also not a 20 cat, goat in the house hole in the wall shack either, we are kinda in the middle. We leave our shoes on down stairs but we sweep and mop at the end of the day. Some things we need help with in the spring of 2022 are:
Minding are little one's, taking them for adventures to the beach and such. Reading books, helping with another language, playing games, cooking, cleanup around the house.
Building a cabin on an island that's 12 knots by boat.
Finishing a dug in green house or walipini.
Sowing in gardens which includes gathering kelp from the ocean.
Repairing/redoing fiberglass boats and building a trailer. I am converting a 28ft cabin cruiser to be a dive boat and I have a 26 foot sailboat to raise the cabin on and convert to junk rig.
Install a 6ft chain-link fence around a new garden so to keep out goats and keep in chickens
That's about it for now although there are always a few small projects popping up. Oh ya have to rebuild an injection pump on farm tractor when kit gets here. We have wood working tools, small band-saw mill. Welding projects always seem to pop up for those who are interested in that stuff. Bit of concrete work from time to time, I make concrete fence posts. We make our own home brew and wine! But don't worry we are too old to drink much with out destroying the next day from hangover so don't get the wrong impression ;)
I will try and get back to you asap now and pretty much all are welcome but we can only take 3-4 max.
Hope to see you this year my friends!!

Family life maintenance and childcare
- Helping to run the show when it comes to feeding the family and the workaways. Maintaining a tidy, clean and functioning house. Offering an extra hand or entertainment for the children when possible (not childcare as a parent is always present). The girls loves meeting new friends and showing them how to use a trampoline.
