  • Descrição


    Our Pack (an older couple with some rather large rambunctious dogs) is currently in the midst of several renovation projects (husband a cabinet maker/wood sculptor/log home builder) on fifteen forested acres with a log home and portable sawmill.

    Our location is amazing in that, though the property feels like living in the forest, it is located 10 kilometers away from the great small town of Invermere BC and numerous golf courses, hot springs, hiking trails and lakes. In the winter there are two ski hills, skating lake and skinny ski opportunities as well. The Banff/Lake Louise Alberta area is approximately a two hour drive away with more fantastic activities. The city of Calgary offers lots of urban activities as well three hours from us.

    We are very interested in longer term stays. As public transportation doesn’t reach us, you will need to have your own transportation (four wheel drive ideal for winter months).

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    An interest in learning new skills or honing existing ones with respect to a rural renovation. A desire to learn and share knowledge regarding doing any kind of home renovation, landscaping and also working with different types of wood, carving and woodworking. As well as our accommodation listed above we also have a back country basic cabin (no electricity, no running water, no internet or cell phone service) about half an hour away available for a getaway for a real wilderness experience with amazing hiking/cross country ski/snowshoe and gorgeous vistas! And balancing that with a love of the outdoors, and meeting new typically Canadian EH! folks would make this a great stay.

  • Ajuda


    The property needs brush clearing and landscape love. Work on wooden decking/carport and rock work; wood staining, basic carpentry, fencing and firewood. We are a great place for someone interested in learning about working with wood/wood slabs/logwork as in structural or project driven. We have a portable sawmill for milling our own logs from our property and hoping to continue milling into the late Fall. Experience with handyman type tools required and some experience with chainsaws, basic electrical /plumbing knowledge would be extremely helpful.

    Helping out with the dogs (three very large Newfoundland/Great Pyrenees mixes) possible grooming, play yard maintenance, occasional dog sitting.

    Algo mais...

    We work hard and are pretty chill. Low key lifestyle, generally early evenings. We try to be very respectful of other folks space and hope for the same. Prior to our return to Canada we hosted many work exchange individuals (often found through word of mouth) a positive experience with new found friends and family along the way. We are hoping that Workaway will help us with the same now we are home. We have both been fully vaxed/boosted with respect to Covid.
