  • Description


    Hello. I have returned from a year of travel with my teen daughter. We were volunteers, now we want to host. We rented our home out while exploring some of our beautiful world. Unfortunately, upon our return, we have found that the conditions of the space are quite poor. We live in a region that is full of year around outdoor activities. Mt hood national forest as well as the Columbia gorge and Oregon beaches are popular destinations. Sandy is a town 45 minutes from the fun city of Portland.

    The project is really quite simple. Restore this land and its dwelings. Out doors we need to clean and organize, winterize gardens, clean out utility structures, ready fire wood, and weatherize. Indoors needs a good scrubbing, painting, resealing, a bit of remoldeling of bathrooms, instalation of a kitchenette and maybe some artistic touches.

    Plenty of space here. Shared bathroom, kitchen, great relaxing room with wood stove. Dependent on number of volunteers , preferences, length of stay,sleeping rooms are shared, or private. Basic healthy food will be supplied. I love to cook. We have a nice kitchen space to use if you like to cook as well. Dietary differences are easily accommodated.
