Hey all! I'm one of a crew of four young natural builders looking for land to work on and people to work with. We have diverse backgrounds - carpentry, farming, art, trail work, designing - and work well together (and with others!) We all recently completed a long-term building intensive program in Oregon together and are excited to put our skills to good use. We want to build infrastructure on a piece of land, ideally one we could live on as we build, and are open to leasing, work trading, purchasing, or any arrangement that gives us some freedom to experiment and use natural techniques as we build.
We're particularly interested in land that doesn't have a lot of infrastructure already in place, and are committed to living on the property for at least a few years if it's the right fit. We're open to any region, including outside of the States, though we're generally focusing on the West Coast. Really looking for a place with a solid & supportive community - either on the land or in the surrounding area. We have some capital, many ideas, and tons of energy to devote to the right place!
Looking to land somewhere as early as next spring, and could come visit serious possibilities over the winter.
I may have some opportunity here in Grants Pass. I have my PDC and took a natural building course last year from cob cottage folks in Bandon OR. Bought some land in June with a small house and barn, but we would like to add structures. I am interested in building/designing a greenhouse using recycled materials and natural building concepts. We would like to build an outdoor cooking area with a wood oven/smoker grill sort of thing going on, and some walls and seating. We may also have the need for a toilet and guest house. There are 8 acres- half open, half wooded, and a river runs through it. Its horrible here ... hehe
get in touch with me here first and we can go from there... see if its a fit.
