Help offered

  • I am an apprentice 3rd year carpenter.
  • I am very interested in getting into log home building.
  • I love the up north work (in Ontario) and I am very willing and eager to travel around Canada working.
  • I am 25 years old and a very reliable, smart, strong worker who often excels when I'm interested and enjoy what I'm doing.
  • I have been doing mostly concrete formwork and enjoy that a lot but just think I want to get into something a little more unique and interesting.
  • I've always thought that log home and log structures are beautiful and can see myself making a home in one of the buildings down the road.

Student Wood technology at HoGent in Belgium since September 2013. From February 8th till April 22nd, 2016 I had the opportunity to follow a 3 months internship abroad. I'm looking for a company interested in supporting me in further development of my design and/or construction skills, insight in wood frame / log home construction and language improvement. I'm very eager to learn everything there is to know about the business your company operates in. With the knowledge I will gain from this internship, I want to establish a solid base for my professional future. Hopefully you will be able to provide me with an internship position at your log home company. If any other information is required, or an interview is necessary, I am always available. Your consideration is greatly appreciated.
