We're a family of four, interested in renting our home while we're off on adventures. We love to ski, hike, sail and climb -enjoying most outdoor pursuits with our children. We enjoy green living, building sustainable structures, and focus on living a simple life in a small arts town in British Columbia. We are most inspired by our children, innovative art, good friends, family and the natural environment.
