    Description

    Hello, I am an artist and professor at a local college in Nashville. I love meeting people visit from all over. I recently bought a home that needs some development and am looking for people with experience in construction and/or gardening/landscape design. I'd love for people who want a cultural exchange to be important to them. Sometimes, I would like someone here who can function as an artist assistant who is skilled in visual arts. :) I am also looking for someone who knows a lot about health and fitness.

    I should say however that Nashville is not a walking city. You need a car to get around if you want to explore.

    If you love classic American country music, Nashville (aka Music City) is a great place to be. The city offers a bounty of delicious southern comfort food and has a great nightlife/bar scene. Staying in Nashville is incredibly expensive, so you can crash with me free for a little work exchange. We can't offer meals but you can do your own cooking.

    I'll take you around as well and hope to make friends with my guests.

    Update May 2019:

    Going to get started on an eco project outside. The aim is to convert a baron landscape into a no-mow yard that support edibles and wildlife habitat. I'm currently working on a design and will be ready to go the first week of June. There will be one workaway here and Would love to host another!

    Starting this Fall I will beed an artist assistant. Skills in painting, taping, cutting, scaling and sewing are needed.

    Here are additional projects in the queue:

    1. Assist on art projects
    2. Frame up hole in loft floor.
    3. Build staircase to loft
    4. Clean and seal front and back decks.
    5. Small home improvement projects, in and outside.
    6. Help build out plant beds and terracing
    7. Build a base for a raincatcher and make an ad hoc irrigation system
    8. Cast cement tile design and help with landscaping projects.
    9. Catio? Cat things
    10. Other stuff.

    We follow a daily schedule and prepare all meals on site. Workaway hours are 25 per week, about 5 hours per day, 5 days a week. Outside of workaway time there are daily household chores and communal cooking requirements like baking bread or grilling chicken. We eat homemade pasta for instance so the food is delicious but it takes time to make it and clean up. Everything is written down on a daily calendar for workaway guests to refer too.

    The house is located just outside the center of the city. You do need a car or you can take lyft/uber. The transportation system in Nashville is predominately by car. You will sleep in the loft, which you will be working on to make more private. :) There is a inflate-able bed on the floor with fresh linens. There is a washer and dryer in the house as well. I will do the laundry. Two cats and a dog live here too. Sometimes I dog sit/board at the house to make extra money.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a lot to do here is you love food and music! There is always good music being performed. Nashville is unpretentious too with a good mix of people young and old. It's very cool to go to the honkey tonks (traditional country music bar) and here people ages 18 or 80 know the lyrics to the same song.

    Also, the core values of this household lean to the left. We respect and support the disabled, people of color, women, the LGBTQ community, veterans, animals and the environment.
