We have a dome home and two hospitality businesses in Berkeley Springs, WV. This very small tourist town is an hour and a half's drive from Washington DC. To service our restaurants, we have a garden & orchard that we cannot keep up with adequately. In addition, the dome and our businesses always need attention! We are seeking someone who WORKS WELL INDEPENDENTLY, feels personally satisfied with a job well-done, and who would enjoy knowing that your efforts support a small-town community.
We are Paul & Trey, a couple in our 50s, living with a practically-perfect dog and ruled by a Sovereign cat.
You would have your own room and bath and at least a minimum wage for work performed. In the US, the federal minimum wage is $7.25/hour. Our "free accomodation" is equivalent to $500/month. At the federal minimum wage, this figures to almost 16 hours per week. In addition to your room, you will receive the US minimum wage for the first 15 hours per week you work... a total of $108.75 per week.
Work performed beyond the minimum 15 hours per week will be paid at a rate commensurate to your skills, anywhere between $10 to $20 per hour. If we agree to host a new learner, we know we will be doing a lot of training, and the work will take longer. A skilled hand will always do a better job, require very little oversight, and also perform the work more quickly. This seems like a fair proposal to us. We are open to hearing another perspective if you have one.
Heimwerker- und Bauarbeiten
We run a coffee house and a biergarten in the center of this small tourist town in West Virginia. Berkeley Springs is a town that emanates from its natural warm springs. Many come here for these healing waters. The water is the ancestral and modern Source of the culture here. The community here is a very unique blending of the Traditional with the Post-Modern, the small-town with the worldwide perspectives.
Paul is a master gardener, a specialist in communications through the lens of Core Values and Integral philosophy, and a builder/engineer. Trey is an entrepreneur at heart, a baker & cook, rock climber, and lover of people and their stories. If you are seeking to learn from the kind of experience we have, please contact us.
