I'm a retired math and science teacher. I've done most of the work on the original part of my house myself. That area will be my woodworking shop. I'm finishing the addition which is now the house. I have 2 acres of light woodland that needs maintaining with one corner that needs to be a garden. My dog Inika, loves people!
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Fairbanks, Alaska, is a beautiful place every season. Summers, with the long days are almost magical. Autumn is gorgeous with the changing of the vegetation. Winter is also magical with the aurora, stars upon stars, and a literally sparkling landscape.
I need help getting my personal workshop and home areas updated. I've started the construction, but need help finishing. In the winter, I'll need help with the above and with general firewood and outdoor maintenance. In spring, summer, and autumn, I'll need help in the yard and around the property, building rock barriers, gardening, and putting in a rainwater catchment system. Eventually, I'd like to build a guest cabin.

There is a loft bedroom with a full size bed and room for your personal stuff. There is also a single bed in the more public shop area. I will provide meals for the days you are here working. I am considered a good cook and will serve locally produced, or harvested food as often as possible.
There are trails nearby useable summer, autumn, and winter. You can snowshoe and ski in the neighborhood as well. We can work out a flexible schedule to take advantage of events and any long road trips. You will have to rent a car for those long road trips, however. There really is so much to see and do!
