The Experience

We are building an eco-retreat center and are looking for skilled help in exchange for lodging, all meals, and experiencing this beautiful slice of nature. We are building cabinets, mostly our of bamboo and wood. We also need help making furniture, fixtures... basically everything, lol. For this position we are looking for someone who is skilled enough to work independently, designing and building. We appreciate sharing ideas and being creative.
