I've offered this up the past three years and I guess I'll offer it up again this year too.  Doing a little giving back to those who are land poor and willingness rich.
I've spent many many hours in emails and on the phone with "tire kickers" Only a few ever showed up and even fewer stayed any length of time.  But not to sound discouraging though.  Alabama's weather is either hot and humid or cold and raining.  With about a good month of "fall" type weather starting anywhere from October to December.  The trend the past few years is our winter arrives later and later.

I have the materials on site to build your own tiny cabin.
8x12. 12x16 
I can throw up a shell of an 8x12 cabin with a single pitched roof in a weekend.


What I'll provide you with:
municipal water and plenty of wood to cut for firewood.
Materials to build a tiny cabin and a bulk of the labor in the building of a cabin.
Occasional work that pays cash.  This will not be a full time job and will be dependent on your abilities as a worker.
Types of work I'll have
I have 800+ trees arriving in March to plant. I'll plant most but a little help is always nice.
Many trees to graft and propagate
Tending animals and the gardens


What you will need to provide for yourself: 
your own lighting solar or whatnot. 
some form of wood heater 
Your own transportation   (A gas station is 3 miles away,  town is 15 miles away, and a Walmart is about 18 miles away)
The majority of your own food.



I have 61 acres in Nauvoo, AL.  1/4 mile of river frontage on the Blackwater River.   40acres was clear cut in 2014 the rest is still wooded.
I work a lot and for the most part would only be able to assist you occasionally until next fall when I plan on transitioning to working from home and for myself again.


The terms are as such.
Don't trash my place.
No drugs.
No cigarette butts on the ground.
Respect of any other guests.
Do not trespass or bother neighbors property.
Along Paul Wheatons lines, this agreement can continue indefinitely as long as both parties are happy.  I have the final say in any disputes.

Anymore questions feel free to post them here, pm, or text me @ two 0 five 53o four six two four

Finished the structure of an 8x12 tiny house.
Cleared about 20acres of the back part of the land for pasture.

I have some personal and legal issue to take care otherwise I would be all over this.  Best of luck and I hope you find the type of person you are looking for and that a good partnership in working is found.
