Hi All,
I am wondering if there are any mobile natural builders/plasters out there who would like some work doing lime rendering. I have 40 acres in NE Arizona, about 10 miles from Snowflake, and I am currently doing some natural plastering with NHL lime on my home and well house. Pay depends on experience, and can increase if you are a good worker. If you have no experience with rendering with NHL lime, but want to learn, the pay will be $10-$15/hour, and with experience it will be $20-25/hr.

There are two 'catches'. One is that the person would need to be self-sufficient in their food and accommodation, and we do get heavy rain and wind here in the summer at times, so a camper van or trailer would be better than a tent. Food stores are only about 10 miles away. There is plenty of well water for washing, rainwater for drinking, and room to camp. And secondly, my desire is to develop this property into a learning center based on the Way God would have us live. The basis of that Way is love and truth. I ask that people who come have a desire to grow in love and truth, and neither bring nor use: guns, alcohol, drugs, pot, cigarettes, and anything else that is against the principles of love and life. Please no pets. And I also ask that people do not bring or consume animals products of any kind while on the property.

For more information about me and the learning center I wish to develop, you can visit my website at:

I am looking for someone (or a couple) who can come for a few days to two weeks, with possibilities for continued work. The schedule would be pretty relaxed, working generally two days on, two days off, or every other day.

If it feels like a good fit, there is additional work in: interior finish work, tiling, plumbing, interior clay plasters, slip straw detailing, designing and building a shop, garden creation, earthen greenhouse, swale and earthworks creation, etc, etc.

If you are interested, please email me at: with some information about your qualifications, interests, desires, and any questions.

Thank you.
