  • Descrição


    Here is a little about us and our beautiful but crazy mountain life and family.
    These last 2 years have brought a lot of change and adjustments and we are now continuing the legacy and love of our Dad, Ulric "The Mountain Man" who passed away suddenly on Jan 31, 2022. We would love some helping hands to come to join us next summer from Mai to October to keep his property alive and filled with laughter, joy, and new memories.

    We have a rustic but beautiful 480-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.

    Our property is unique and one of a kind. There is still a lot of open construction, unfinished projects, and houses that need to be worked on.
    My dad held his hammer in his hand right till the day he passed at 80. But the property and the number of open projects he had going were too much for him to finish. So we are now trying to pick up where he left off. We are trying to finish the construction of the huge lodge that was left completely unfinished and abandoned as well as clean up what is getting old and needs help.
    So 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, light construction, wire meshing, and putting paper on the exterior of the lodge to get it prepped for stucco, garbage runs, burn piles etc...
    It is an eclectic, eccentric property that is away from it all, one thing we know is you will feel free and alive when you are with us, it's peaceful and vast. Please reach out if spending a month in mountain paradise suits you.
