We love visiting Camlann, which is located in Carnation, Wa (north and east of Seattle). It's a reenactment of what life in medieval England in 1376 was like.  

They are currently looking to hire a carpenter/timberframer, both to build historical buildings for the village, as well as to act as a medieval carpenter during the festivals and Village Days. Here's a quote from their site (http://camlann.org/employment.htm):

Carpenter / Timber Framer:  Part time (3 days per week to start.  Experience required.  Starts at $25 per hour.  Call Roger at 425-788-1945.



I don't know if there's any local people with the building skills, and desire to do medieval reenactment, but I thought I'd let people know!

I would give my eye teeth to be able to visit this! If anyone else likes this kind of thing, take a look at Tales from the Green Valley, and Life on a Monastery Farm, both on YouTube or from Amazon.  Archiologists spend a year living the life, learning the crafts, farming the land. Fascinating stuff.

It really is an amazing place, and it gets better every year! I would love to see a permie be their carpenter--they'd get to hone their natural building skills, learn historical techniques, and teach a ton of people about natural building, all in a fun and immersive way!
