Engineering student and laser mom seeking long term house rental

Hello Rossland

My wife and I are moving out your way in May. We're seeking a detached home for rent, with three bedrooms ideally, and a shop/garage/workspace would be a huge plus. I'm finishing out my final semester of a mechanical engineering degree at Teck Trail operations in an 8-month co-op position, ending December '18. After my co-op term has ended, I'm hoping to secure long-term employment either with Teck or another firm in the area, so it's likely that the rental term will extend until we're due to buy our first place.

About us:

My wife is a soon-to-be mother, with our first due in August. She is a self-made lady who has put me through school by selling custom-made rubber stamps which she fabricates on our laser cutter; you can find her work at She's an aspiring writer and likes cooking and canning (lucky me).

I'm a drummer and a tinkerer. I like to make things and fix things. I have grand plans of building my own nanobrewing setup someday and potentially starting a 1970's-era canterbury scene progressive rock cover band (yes! hahahaha).

Kibs, Juniper, and Terry fox-mulder are our cats. They're mostly good cats.

Thanks for reading this far; please give me a shout if you have something presently or opening up soon that you think would be a good fit for us. We'd like to live in Rossland but anywhere within reasonable commuting distance of the smelter is fine if the house is a good fit.
