Thanks for your reply. Sincerely, Dottie Porter Hi Dottie, We run a networking email group called Willing Workers in Appropriate Technology at <http://greenbuilder.com/mailman/listinfo/wwat/>. The idea is that those who have projects that need workers connect with workers who are looking for projects to work on. Generally there's an exchange of things like food, lodging/camping, knowledge, work and/or sometimes some money, but the details of all that are up to you to work out between you. Now is a great time to post to the group, as there are a lot of students available during the summer and the smart ones are planning ahead now. Best of luck with your house! -- Bill Christensen <http://greenbuilder.com/contact/> Green Building Professionals Directory: <http://directory.greenbuilder.com> Sustainable Building Calendar: <http://www.greenbuilder.com/calendar/> Green Real Estate: <http://www.greenbuilder.com/realestate/> Straw Bale Registry: <http://sbregistry.greenbuilder.com/> Books/videos/software: <http://bookstore.greenbuilder.com/>
