Our home

We offer a large farmhouse type home, in a quiet neighborhood. The back door leads into a large backyard with a garden, hammock bed, terrace and barbeque area. In the very back, we have a compost area, bunny(2) and chicken coop with 3 ducks, a rooster and a chicken (the neighbor can care for them if you don't want to feed them), a sandbox and a children's playhouse. We have a trampoline and many bicycles. Very friendly neighbors. Almost everything is situated on one floor, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large living room and open kitchen (with pull out sofa sleeps 2), equipped with modern appliances). One small room upstairs that we use for an office (sleeps 1) and the laundry room and saunas (both wood-burning and electric) are situated downstairs. Downstairs also has a small gym-area, craft space and tool shop.

Who we are

  1. We are Lori and Markku, early 50's, with a large family made up of 3 biological and 4 foster children(and 4 grandkids). I am an OT and my husband is the principal of the Deaf School. Last year, the whole family (10 people!)travelled to Tansania and we had a wonderful time!! In July 2010, we hope to attend my family reunioun in Saskatchewan(6 of 8 my siblings live in B.C., though). We are looking at all options, either one house for the entire group or, 2 separate houses. Let's talk about it!
