Eco-building, tropical landscaping, healthy lifestyle...come join the international creative team at the House. Originally from Canada, we are building a house and retreat centre outside of Chiang Mai, Thailand where we plan to host workshops in yoga, massage, Acroyoga, dance, art, natural building...
The building materials included mud, grass, soap, salt, bottles, rocks, mosaic (adobe, bamboo, aircrete blocks, bottle bricks) to construct domes, arches, and various round, curvy shapes and a salt water pool - all in original architectural design.

UN sustainablity goals this host is trying to achieve
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
Living in rural Thailand yet still 20 minutes from Chiang Mai's 800 yr old city. Chiang Mai is a dynamic, multicultural city with something for everyone. In the countryside you can watch the cycle of rice farming, visit the local temple and market, learn to speak some Thai with the locals, visit nearby attractions. Also learning about the natural building process, design, and making mosaic.
I HAVE SOME TILING WORK TO DO (AS OF MARCH 2020) AND AM LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WITH EXPERIENCE AS A TILER - ESPECIALLY CUTTING CURVES WITH AN ANGLE GRINDER.
We are looking for helpers with some building, carpentry or stone work experience and artistic flair. There will be a lot of landscaping, gardening, irrigation/drainage layout to take advantage of the rainy season and there are also many other jobs such as building shelving, surfacing outdoor pathways (stone), mosaic and other artistic contributions, lighting design, photography, video editing, website design, building a covered parking space for motorcycles with attached shed....

It is located 15km SW from Chiang Mai, on the edge of a rural village and surrounded by rice paddy. There is one spare bedroom in the house with 3 comfortable foam mattresses, a sofa bed on the back deck, option to sleep under the stars (and a mosquito net) on the upper terrace, a bamboo hut with a double bed and several tents also available. There is a full indoor kitchen and bathroom. We mostly cook vegetarian meals (but you could cook meat outside on the small bbq if you wanted). We can share responsibilities for cooking, cleaning and shopping for meals at the house and we usually go out to a local restaurant for lunch. Food will be provided on site and if we go to the local restaurant for lunch, but you are responsible to pay for yourself if you go out to other restaurants to eat.
What else ...
Chiang Mai is only 20 minutes away and has lots to offer including temples, Thai Massage, Acroyoga, great food, yoga, dance, hiking... We are 1km away from the Grand Canyon where you can swim, kayak and jump from cliffs and also close to Ob Khan National Park to hike, swim or camp. Many people come to Chiang Mai for motorcycle and bicycle tours in the surrounding mountains....and did I mention coffee?...hundreds of coffee shops around the city to choose from.
There are 4 bicycles on the property to use for exploring the local area and transport to Chiang Mai (30 minutes) or Hang Dong (10 minutes) can be arranged amongst ourselves (usually by motorbike) or by Grab taxi (like Uber) or by red truck (public shared taxi).
We have a salt water swimming pool on site to help cool off on a hot day and we enjoy hanging out, listening to & playing music, doing Acroyoga, slacklining, yoga, massage, cooking good food, playing games....

Luke is a friendly, considerate guy who was willing to take on any task and lend a helping hand. While designing a logo for us he asked all the right questions to understand what we were looking for, and could easily manipulate things on the screen to show options and narrow down the choices - we were very happy

Jenny's house is unique in so many ways, it is hard to describe because it is so unconventional but it is without doubt worth seeing
