Ok, thanks. If there are no options for my wife and child to cook and eat, I'll come to another workshop at a later date by myself.

Ok, I've paid my registration fee. I'm not sure if my wife will also attend unless the baby can also come. Can you email me directly for logistics and to arrange cabins, etc.? ryanbahl5@gmail.com

wheaton labs is within an hour (one way) of Missoula.

$30-$60 per night, rustic, simple accommodations at wheaton labs.



Sorry no childcare options.

Maybe rent a structure or a bunk here - and your fam can hang out while you play with the natural building stuff?


You'd book something. First step is to register for the event, then I will send more info on what rentals are available.

As you may or may not know, wheaton labs is two pieces of property, base camp, and the lab, separated by two miles (down a paved, then gravel, then dirt some times mud adventure road where high clearance vehicles are recommended). base camp is on-grid, has full utilities and wifi. the lab is off-grid, has limited cell phone reception, has two willow feeders (dry toilets), and pretty much all water for drinking, washing, or bathing, needs to be brought in (from our good well water at base camp).

Allerton Abbey, the site of this workshop, is located on the lab, though meals and showers will be available at base camp. Your wife and child would be on their own for their food, though workshop attendees are invited to dine at Paul's table.

It looks like there will be some limited off-grid cabin availability on the lab. We would have carpooling in our van available between the two properties for event attendees.

Alternatively, at base camp, there will be space in the shared bunk bedroom in the Fisher Price House, and there might even be a private cabin available (bedroom only, no bathroom or kitchen - you could use the bathroom in the Fisher Price House, but the kitchen will be too busy to be available for separate cooking) - I'm still confirming that one.

I've given kind of a thorough reply because traveling with little ones often means knowing these kind of things in advance!
