Round House

The roundhouse is an open-concept 28′ diameter octagonal shaped home. It was originally built in Whaletown in the 1970’s by a group of hippies, lived in by almost everyone, and then abandoned. Henry took the roundhouse apart and reassembled it at BlueJay Lake Farm, fixing it up in the process.

The roundhouse has a kitchen, open living space, bathroom, and an upper loft for sleeping/living. It also has an open porch, woodshed, and a large fenced-in garden with a winter creek running behind it. There are propane lights, a propane fridge on the porch, a propane stove in the kitchen, and a woodstove for heating and cooking. The water is heated by a solar heater and through the wood stove. During the dry summer months electricity is limited. From October-ish to around June electricity is available to the roundhouse through the off-grid hydro system.

We are looking to live with others who enjoy the rural lifestyle, are eager to participate in farm projects, want to live in community and are interested in living a simple life without many modern conveniences. Sharing in the milking livestock would be an expectation for those living on the farm.
