Historic inn transitioning to monthly rental studios, in small town on the Mendocino Coast, 3 hours north of San Francisco. We need help with maintenance and buiding projects. Day-to-day operations may include any of the following: cleaning, painting, gardening. Special projects may include construction, plumbing, electrical, and painting. Special consideration will be given to helpers who have construction skills. I am also designing tiny houses, and plan to start building this winter.

No TV, but we have WIFI. We have organic kitchen gardens as well as ornamental grounds.

No pets, drugs or smoking. Non-drinkers, or moderate drinkers welcome. Most important, NON-SMOKERS ONLY -we have guests who are very sensitive to smoke. It is not enough to smoke away from the premises, smoke clings to clothing and hair, and lingers in common areas even if smokers were just rushing through.

In exchange for 20 hrs/week (with at least 2 days off each week) we provide lodging and vegetarian kitchen staples. If you like meat, there is a phenomenal butcher shop a block away. Kitchen privileges available, on the condition clean-up is immediate and immaculate.

We speak English, French, some German, Danish, Spanish, and can help you with your English.

Local bus available (goes around town and to Mendocino). Bus from Santa Rosa/Ukiah/Willits is MTA Mendocino Transit Authority CC Rider # 65, only runs a couple times a day so check schedule when making travel plans using public transportation. From SFO or OAK airports to Santa Rosa, the Sonoma County Airporter Express takes any amount of luggage; the Golden Gate Transit bus from San Francisco to Santa Rosa does not permit large luggage or backpacks.
