  • Description


    Come experience the season change in one of the most remote and beautiful places in the lower 48. Our family has been building an off-grid cabin in the Beartooth mountains of Montana this summer, and we have a lot of general clean-up to do before things get buried by the snow.

    Fall season in the mountains is magical, but also requires a lot of work as we put up firewood and do a general 'buttoning up" of the property. Tasks include cutting and moving scrap wood to firewood piles, raking up and moving scrap tree branches to burn piles. Moving equipment and tools inside so they are out of the weather. Walking around with garbage bags doing litter detail.

    The length of work availability will depend on how soon the snow pushes us out. We are located at 9,200 feet, and winter hits us a lot sooner than it does down in the valleys. It could hit anytime in the next few weeks.

    If you are in the area please get in touch. We would love to talk to you and discuss things further!
