Hi- We are ready to start the next phase of farm income diversification.  You can see a bunch of pictures etc of our 1/4 acre city farm at Food Forest Farms Fb Page

We own a duplex in Federal Way WA and a 10 acre property on the Key Peninsula.  We have well established hueggel beds, Muscovy ducks, aquaponic true wasabi, fig and lemon trees.  Now we want to get the place ready for Air B&B / workshop visitors.  Last year we stripped down a 25' RV frame, and had power run out to our upper driveway.  That will be the stand alone tiny house, that needs to be built from the ground up.  The other 1 bed/1bath is 90% done.  Just needs an exterior door, interior door, and a window.  Both spaces will then be rentable - hopefully to permaculture type people.

As a BONUS - my friend has jobs at his roofing company OPEN and if you are part of this project you will get first consideration.  If roofing is not your thing there are 100 manufactures within 10 miles all looking for machine ops, forklift drivers, etc....  You will need a real job/income to come here.  If you can pass a piss test you can get a $15/20 job in a day or 2.  Shit, even go work in the Amazon warehouse picking orders.  Full healthcare from day 1.  Mindnumbing, but solid.

In the begining you will need to be a self contained living unit.  Meaning you have a van camper, truck camper, or something to keep yourself in while the first space gets completed.  There is 30a 22v power inplace you can tap into.  Oncethe first space is  complete, you need to decide, move into that space and pay rent or we put it up on Air B&B and you start collecting cash for the labor you have into the build. (we split net income on the rental 50/50 until you are paid). Then we start building the Tiny House on the frame.  I pay for and source materials, you do the build.  Same deal on the tiny house.  Once its renting we split 50/50 until you are paid off.

If you are still loving the deal, we plan to build about 4 more Tiny's out on the 10 acre property.  Out there we will be using more rocketmass heating, water catchment, etc...

Federal Way WA is about 7 miles south of the Airport and directly in between Seattle and Tacoma.  We are 4 blocks to a major transit hub and a block and a half from the Rapid Ride.  A very well positioned property to rent.  Close to I-5 but also 2 miles to the boat ramp and 5 -7 miles to all the businesses in the valley.  If you would like to make the leap to the coast and come help on a fun project, do some research on us, then get in touch.  All of our contact info is on facebook, or on our website.

UPDATE-
We found 2 folks for the city farm tiny house build.  1 from craigslist.  Local.  Doesnt need a place to live, just wants to helpon the build.  One from the TSP community.  He's moving up from Texas to help on the project and test drive Seattle.  

NEXT PHASE-
Start building out farm ops on our 10 acres out on the Key Penninsula.  If you have any ideas for a permaculture venture you need space to set up, hit us up with a proposal.  Bee Keeping, Black Smithing, Tiny House Campground.... We are open to creating stuff collaberativly.

Brian,  your tiny house building project and development tiny house campground is of interest and I'd like to work in exchange this spring/summer. We have common plans, last names and I'm wanting to do the same type of place in the future. I've done industrial roofing in Alaska,  5 years experience several years ago.  I'm seeking a tiny house or natural build project to join and assist individuals doing this type of construction for living,  lifestyle alternatives. I'm looking to work 3-4 months this summer on a project like yours as I live in Las Vegas and may either restart consulting business or decide some thing permanent in your area as you recommended.  In the event you are needing laborer for your project email me nortonderek@aol.com or text 7022000180. I'm not needing income from the rentals. Interested in building these structures and working on your project this summer and possibly next few summers until I get some land purchased. All the best Derek
