We are developing gardens and buildings on approx 100 ACRES an hour west of Ottawa. We have built a straw bale home that is still in need of finishing items plus some out-buildings. We have planted 15 fruit trees that require some care and have about 1/2 acre of vegetable gardens that we would like help in.

We have a few projects this year which would require dedicated hard working people. We will be working towards completing our straw bale home and will be building decks, stairs and trim. We also have a sailboat to complete and intend to start work on a root cellar. This along with the usual animal care, fencing, firewood and gardening!

For the right person this could be a great opportunity to learn and have some fun. Dave is a highly experienced builder and needs help to finish the projects at hand. You do not require extensive building experience, but should have some exposure and comfort around tools, hand and power. While our focus will be on completing the work, we will take time to help people learn and take pleasure in the tasks. We will be working full days, 5 days a week in exchange for room and board and ensuring you are learning building skills that will serve you for the rest of your life.

There will be time for various other activities including, swimming, canoeing, hiking, fishing, perhaps sailing....

We are friendly, hardworking people who like to laugh and play. We are looking for someone who is hard working and eager to learn. Stay could be a week or longer.
