Husband and wife team looking to exchange room and board for help with painting and improving the tiny guest cottage, fencing, foot bridges, gardening, odd carpentry, saw milling, mowing, and shared cooking. Equipment now ready to begin making stabilized compressed earth blocks (CEB) for small outbuildings, first, then next summer begin building a CEB home/workshop. We are on 88 acres of rough terrain, mostly woods with creeks, springs and rock ledges. *Rugged living conditions* (off grid, outdoor showers etc.). This is a remote location: five miles to the post office, another five miles to the nearest gas station, and another ten miles to stores in Lewisburg WV. Nearest cell phone signal is three miles down the road. Satellite Internet available for email and Skype telephone calls. We have a small fruit and nut orchard, large garden, beginning some trout farming. Must love and respect dogs, cats and wildlife. We participate in local community events and help neighbors as needed.
