We are remodeling our home and designing our farm land.

Here is a list of work we need done to the house and land:

-Someone who can do home remodeling. We need to have the bathroom remodeled, as well as the kitchen. We have to extend a wall, (which used to be a door), and create a space for a door on another part of the wall.
-Experts in organic farming
-Irrigation system set up
-Help transplanting plants and trees
-help planting new trees
-Help with the overall layout of the land
-help choosing which healthy foods, herbs, and spices we should plant
-a yoga teacher
-a meditation teacher
-We need three tiki huts built
-we need someone to make hammocks
-someone who could teach us and help us build an outdoor sauna
-someone who can build a chicken coop
-someone experienced in training dogs

In exchange for work done, you will be our guest at the house. We will prepare your meals daily. We can also bring you into town. We would only ask for $20 a day to cover expenses (food, utilities). We would also show you around the island for a small fee for gas and time. If you are interested please feel free to contact me. This work will begin in several weeks.

The house is rustic. To shower you will have to fill a bucket with water. The water will be either cold or warm depending on how hot it is outside. That is where the water tank is located. We can also bath in a near by river which is extremely refreshing after a hard day of work. There are shops close by, but the town is a 30 minute drive away. I would be available to take you into town as needed. You can also rent one of our cars. I along with one of my relatives will be there at the house. We are young, and generally relaxed people. We are extremely respectful people as well, and we would like any of our guests to be the same.

Places of interest that are about a 40 minute drive away are Dunns River Falls, Mystic Mountain, Bamboo Beach, James Bond Beach, Runaway Bay, Scotchies, The Jerk Center Restaurant. The house is in a mountain/country area. Nearest to the house are beautiful rivers, mountain views, nature, exotic birds such as humming birds, and hawks.

Due to the house being in the mountains, there is not always a phone signal. The only way to access the internet is using your phone, which is quiet slow.

In conclusion, please be aware that this house is in an agricultural area. Many of the people in this area are farmers. So if you have any skill with the above listed tasks, please contact me. Serious inquiries only.
