This is a fantastical house renovation project in progress. It's a magical and open space that has been created and shaped by the occupants over the last four years. The house is close to finished and has regular amenities: kitchen and bathrooms, internet and a washer. Our work continues on the interior and exterior of the house. Check out our facebook page for some more images of the process (and us)!

Tiny Circus, a collaborative project that creates stop-motion animations with community groups is also based out of the house, and there may be some opportunity to get involved.

Helpers work 16 hours per week in exchange for a comfy bed in a shared room and use of the house and kitchen. Internet too! Several bikes are available. Food is not included, but there is a grocery store nearby. There are several helper rooms, some are private, some shared. We are looking for folks with a range of skills. Any kind of finish carpentry or carpentry in general is a plus, but no experience is necessary (except a willingness to work and be thoughtful about your housemates).

Jobs include:
Trim carpentry
Yard work

Contact us for more information! We like to do a skype meetup first if possible so we can see if it's a good fit for you and us.

Holy Cross is a great neighborhood in the lower 9th of New Orleans. We are 2 blocks from a park-like levee on the Mississippi river and a 10-15 minute bike ride from the Bywater neighborhood with bars and restaurants. We have some loaner bikes and there is a bus nearby.
