Young Couple Seeking Housing - Creative and Flexible: My partner, Tim Manney, and I are seeking housing come May 1st. We are responsible renters, and extremely flexible, open to work trade (extensive vegetable gardening, carpentry, landscaping and childcare experience), and do not need much space. Ideally we are looking for a 1-2 bedroom small place (cabins, tents, yurts possible during warm months) with nearby space for Tim's chairmaking woodshop. We are hoping to rent a place near Merriconeag, or closer to/in Portland, and would be delighted to find a spot on or near a farm. If you are interested in renting, know of some housing leads, or a space for a woodshop, we would love to hear from you! My contact is: email@example.com, or you can find me in Early Childhood, or the After-Aftercare Program. Thanks! (02/07)
Wanted: Two free standing lamps for After-Aftercare so we can create a space conducive to quiet reading time.
