About Us

Man About Tools Ltd., was created to document our journey creating a small homestead in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We like to garden and strive to become more self sufficient. We are passionate about many aspects of homesteading and sustainability. We are excited about reshaping our small space into beautiful and functional property.

Kent is a graduate of Engineering Technology and has design and product development experience and is a life student in many creative disciplines. These include art, music, woodworking, and general construction and carpentry. Marilyn is an eager and hardworking gardener and (most of the time) goes along with Kent’s creative endeavours.

On our website we have detailed the many projects we have constructed to support those of you who have purchased project plans from us. There’s links on each plan’s page to an associated blog post. And there’s also a link to the corresponding Youtube video.

Thank you for your continued support,

Kent & Marilyn Gravelle
