Hi all - I'll be moving north (from Olympia area) for a job soon. I have two properties in Thurston County that I have extensive plans for, but need a bit of capital for infrastructure projects, and the best paying jobs in my industry tend to be north. Long story short, I'll be living and working up there for at least a year, probably a bit longer, and I would love to find a house share or mother in law apartment (or anything along those lines) on a farm, or even a few acres, shared with fellow permies. I will probably be too busy to chip in much with work, but I can pay well, and reliably, for the space. Would love to make some new friends and at least be around some cool projects while I slave away for the machine. Looking for anything in the area from basically Edmonds up to Mount Vernon area. Can be East or west of I5 but ideally not too terribly far out. Needs to be an on-grid situation with reliable high speed internet, as a great deal of my job will be from a home office. I just need to be close enough to travel to various jobsites when needed, and Olympia is a tad too far. Anyway, feel free to shoot me a message if you know of anything.

Oh, and I'm a 37yo male, very quiet healthy lifestyle, non smoker, drink only very lightly on occasion, predominantly introverted but with a healthy extrovert side, regular meditator, practiced in Buddhism but with no serious affiliation, and very, very passionate about all things regenerative and wild. Thanks for reading!

Hi Brandon, I wish I knew of a place for you!

This property and developing community, https://www.rootednw.org/, doesn't have living spaces built there yet, but I wonder if the community members might know of a place in that Edmonds to Mount Vernon corridor for you.

Good luck!

Thank you! I will definitely check out RootedNW. I think I've seen their ads recently on Facebook actually. Would be interesting to find out what they have going on up there.

Dave Boehnlein is one of the founders of RootedNW and a very cool guy. I've met him and even worked with him from coordinating some events where he taught or spoke on permaculture topics. He was/is the education director at Bulloch Brothers Permaculture Homestead (there's a thread about that here somewhere...) on Orcas Island in Puget Sound outside of Seattle.

Dave used to be active on the forums, might still occasionally pop in, and there might be a RootedNW thread here, too, but I couldn't find it when I replied.

 
This tiny ad has a self esteem problem. Too much self esteem.
