Looking for volunteers to come help me build a round wood timber frame cabin in the mountains of Western Montana on Wheaton Labs. I'll be accepting help from now until October 18th 2019. Right now I'm putting up posts and beams. This is my first cabin I've attempted to build, so don't expect me to be an expert, haha! I'm mostly just experimenting and learning as I go. Hand carved mortise and tenon joinery is being used. The roof will be a green roof. I'll be experimenting with different types of insulative walls (wool and light clay straw for sure. Maybe something with wood chips/saw dust and possibly straw bale). Check out this YouTube playlist on my channel to see what I've done so far:

I can pick you up from the airport or bus station in Missoula. I have a tent and a hammock you can use to camp out. There might also be the option to rent one of the other structures while you are here. I can supply staple foods while you are here. Maybe we can work out something where we cook together and share meals. I'd also be willing to give you a tour of the stuff here at Wheaton Labs. There's a good amount of cool stuff to see! I'm charging $100 to come. That covers rides to/from the airport and staple foods for a week. You are welcome to stay and help longer than a week, but you'd be responsible for your own food after that. Please note that Wheaton Labs does not allow the use of tobacco, cannabis, or other hard drugs.
Can you really tell me that we aren't dealing with suspicious baked goods? And then there is this tiny ad:
