    We are a family of masters level artists, a circus professional and writer, seeking two work-away helpers to come stay at our beachside island house in Rhode Island, about 4.5 hrs north of New York City, by car or bus ...

    It's a really interesting house, the interior was built with a spirit of architectural collage. It's a 3BR house, overlooking the ocean. The house is off-grid solar, in a great community of weekend getaway cottages. You would have your own bedroom, shared bath.

    Keep in mind that given that the house is a simple off-grid solar setup, you would only be able to expect to charge a phone. The artists who would do potentially really well here in a rustic setting, would be painters, writers, an acoustic musician, theatrical actors, spiritual seekers etc. We are artists, and that's why I mention this. If you're an artist looking for a rustic self guided retreat / work-away, then it could be great for you. The views here of the water are amazing.

    Animals are ok! No candles or smoking in the house, but outside is ok. A small family would be workable too, in one bedroom.

    The house needs some help with painting the exterior, cleaning, and improving the solar. Food will be provided, and you can always fish or go out and get your own clams. We'll make fresh clam chowder for sure on a few nights, from our own clam catch the same day. You would probably need your own fishing pole, but we do have the clam rakes.

    Help expectation is 5 hrs/day, 5 days per week = 25 hrs. Let me know if you have any questions, we're getting photos together. We'll be picking a handful of interested workawayers and then interviewing over the phone.

    A plus : Being an artist, enjoying cooking a plus, easy going, used to being in a rustic setting and enjoying it, handyman repair skills a plus - solar and all around.

    Have a blessed day, and may the Light and the Truth shine upon you in these challenging times.
