    Description

    Hi! I'm Jen..a fun and friendly female living in a rustic and almost 200yr old gold miner's cottage in the gorgeous village of Waverley, about 20 minutes outside Halifax. I only work about 15hrs / week these days doing a variety of things I love. Both my children live in Halifax and are in university. I have a cat, and an alpaca and the sweetest little 10lb wonderdog named Peru. This old house is aging faster than I can keep up with it so I am hoping to find an animal friendly person with interest and/skills in carpentry, woodworking, renovation or construction...or at least a willingness to watch how-to YouTube videos with me as I need help with some long outstanding projects in this lovely old home.
    I lead a wonderful and interesting life.. I travel a lot (pre-Covid), which is why I have so many outstanding projects! Each August I head to Nevada for 4-5 weeks for Burning Man. I am the regional contact for the Burning Man organization here in the Maritimes and love telling stories of adventures in the desert!

    I offer a very warm and welcoming environment and will ensure you are comfortable and well fed! While my home is not on a bus route, I head into Halifax several times a week so you will have plenty of opportunity to see the city and surrounding area. I have been a Couchsurfing host for over 10 years and have hosted people from all over the world. I heat predominately with wood in the winter, although I do have a furnace to take the chill out of the air in the mornings.

    I have high speed internet but not so high speed in the guest cottage!

    If we get along well, there are often opportunity to for you to stay here while I am off adventuring.

    Looking forward to meeting you!

    I am happy to help you with your English language skills, and teach you all about Burning Man. Also, even if you have only basic renovation skills, let's learn how to do things together! 😆

    There are gorgeous walking trails close to my home. I have a couple of kayaks you can use in the lakes that surround where I live. Plus, there is Halifax only 25 minutes away, which is a fantastic city to explore.
