We are currently relocating from Portland to our new home and will be living in a small town an hour north of the Spokane airport called Newport, WA My name is Julie and my husband's name is Patrick. We have four daughters ages 1, 5, 9, 16, and 3 sons ages 11, 14 and 18. We are currently relocating from Portland to our new home and will be living in a small town an hour north of the Spokane airport. The other residents currently include rabbits, cats and multiplying chicken flock family. We are life learners / wild schoolers / TJed homeschoolers and engage with our local community as much as we can. My husband works full time and then some from home.
We live on a beautiful 18 acre property including a picturesque creek running though it. . We especially love hosting Workawayers and gleaning from your experiences and interests! We learn so much from meeting people from all walks of life and benefit so much from the cultural exchange!
We are especially excited about all the benefits that come from learning all about you, and your home. It's like traveling without going anywhere!
We also welcome opportunities to learn about the Pacific Northwest together when possible and are located in a great location with many wonderful places to explore nearby.

We would love to have your help with our homestead, especially growing food, remodeling our home, landscaping and building. Some current projects include building a bunk house in our forest, butchering chickens, building an outdoor shower, working on our outdoor kitchen, working on building a cob oven, adding steps down our hill, installing swales on contour, setting up animal paddocks, remolding our home, finishing our basement and expanding the garden area. There are also some cleaning tasks, random tasks that relate to having a big family, cooking, wildcrafting, gardening, farm work and sharing what you love with our children.
When you introduce yourself, I would love to know what kind of work you prefer and what you want to learn more about. We are flexible and will love designing your experience so that it compliments your particular interests while also helping our household's various goals most of the time.

There are a couple of options. If it is available, we have a master bedroom that is not yet furnished, a large daylight basement that is sufficient but needs to be finished. There is also a small 1978 camper trailer and an option for tent for camping using our tents, compost toilet, outdoor shower and outdoor kitchen in our forest just a short walk from the creek that is best enjoyed from Late Spring to Early Fall! There is a communal fire pit also.
We are willing to host those who have concerns about Covid and are willing to offer outdoor work and experiences, although the cultural exchange is more difficult. We as a family rely heavily on natural immunity and are not concerned about socializing and close interaction, especially with those staying on our property. If you choose the shot, please take it several weeks before coming.
Our location is ideal for travelers who want easy access to outdoor recreation opportunities. We live 1 mile from a beautiful lake and 4 minutes from the Pend Orielle River! We are close to nature areas, trails and tourist locations.
We live along a highway 17 minutes outside of town along a beautiful country road. Take a day trip to Spokane or Sandpoint, ID by bus or car. Unless you are looking to use Uber or Lyft while in town we recommend renting a vehicle in order to take advantage of your stay out here. I can also drive you to the bus stop on occasion and take you on errands when we go.
This is a perfect opportunity for friends traveling together, couples, and we especially welcome families! Our daily life includes the children and attempting to keep things in order and feed people. We eat primarily organic, whole, local food in season that is fairly simple. We love eating food and herbs grown in our garden and eggs from our hens when they are not molting or too hot or cold. Our garden is a "learning garden" so it only supplements our diet, but some things are plentiful at times! Patrick is vegetarian aside from eggs and fish and the rest of us are omnivores who eat locally, raised humanely raised meat sparingly.
I am often heading out for homeschool related activities, schooling, working around the property in the or spending time at the creek in the afternoon during the summer. Patrick has a very heavy workload but tries to join us in the evening and on the weekend when possible. When at home we are playing, learning, cleaning, and cooking for the most part. We often go camping when the weather is right and would love to have you join us if you are interested.
We expect our guests to not smoke and drink anywhere near the house or take drugs. We personally abstain from alcohol and cigarettes and don't have them in our home but if you bring your own trailer or it remains at your campsite it is your choice. We are striving to create a wholesome environment for our kids. We live a busy, often crazy and fun life. Still, having 7 dynamic and primarily extroverted children can be dramatic and wild at times! Come join the fun!
