Living at Ampersand

We are looking for a short-term resident!

Want to spend the winter at Ampersand?  Here is an opportunity to get a taste of off-grid desert living during Ampersand's down time. 

Warm and comfortable, off-grid, with earthen plaster and rain catchment, the cottage's design is intended for conscious use of resources. The interior is rustic earthen with charming handmade touches. It's a 250 sq ft passive solar strawbale cottage with a sleeping loft. Wood stove for backup heat. Bathroom with solar hot water is attached. Composting toilet.

Perfect for those interested in low tech, sustainable living. A small photovoltaic system powers the cottage. Wi-fi is available. Water supply is from rain catchment. Filtration for drinking provided. Small kitchen set-up. 1.5 miles out a dirt road.  High clearance or 4wd vehicle recommended. Some experience with camping or primitive living preferred. 

Available October 1. We are looking for a commitment through April.
$350/month plus work-trade: work with us two days per month, it's a chance to learn some skills too.  I promise, we are good neighbors!
