    Description

    I'm looking for a single person or couple to help me in beautiful Boulder Utah. I am located inside the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument between bryce canyon and capitol reef national parks. I need help building an outdoor kitchen/storage building. You will be staying in a very cool converted school bus that has running water (including hot shower), bed, stove and music powered by a small solar system. I have all the materials (which I salvaged) and have the site work completed for the project. I like to build creative, inspired structures. You will gain construction skills and knowledge on salvaging materials as well as knowledge on homesteading and off-grid living.
    The ideal person(s) is not afraid to learn new things, physically fit , does not thrive on drama, speaks reasonable English, and has a sense of humor and adventure. There's amazing hiking and exploring right from the property. I have lived off-grid on this 26 acres for 20 years and have learned many skills that I like to share. The community of boulder is small (200 people), remote (90 miles to closest stoplight) but vibrant and full of colorful, talented characters.
    Please check out our previous workawayers comments to get a better idea of what to expect.

    Help

    You will be primarily helping me with the construction of a 16'X16' shed that will serve as an 'outdoor' kitchen , workshop and storage. You do not need previous construction experience but just be interested in learning
    Also, I will be working on moving and converting a small grain silo into an art workspace. Depending on the season, we will need help in the garden.
    The ideal workawayers needn't have experience, just a willingness to learn new skills. They are strong and healthy with a good attitude. They are interested in learning about the off-grid lifestyle and ideally aspire to live a simpler life.
