I'm a country boy at heart and I'm stuck here in mlps mn I need to get back out to the contry before I go crazy. I'm a carpenter and welder. I also do all forms of remodleing and labor work. I know that this sounds crazy but itis me. I don't have any money but I love to work in the outdoors. If you think that you can help and you live in mn please write and lets talk. I will barrder for shelter and food.I would some day like to have my own homestad and woodworking shop.

Keep an in the papers for "farm help". I see ads every so often offering room and board for work. Not all farmers do their own work. I have been doing carpentry work for 6 years in the country after moving from the city. I do a lot of work for farmers who don't have time or the know-how to do it themselfs. Things can get slow in the winter months but that is when I get caught up on the my own work. I would rather work my tail off to make ends meet than live someplace I was unhappy with doing a job I am unhappy with. Good luck and know things will be tough as you get started but if it is your dream you must follow it.

I don't want to dissapoint you, but out here in the country, carpenters and welders are about a dime a dozen, and most of them are without work.
If you need to earn a living, you need to stay in the city.

yep Sven is right, most farmers do their own welding and carpenter work. It sorta comes with the job.

wish I could help you    Posted 08-31-2003 at 10:53:02       [Reply]  [No Email]
