Burnt cedar siding project install help (shou sugi ban 焼杉板)
About We are an Indigenous, inspired, sustainable design company. We promote decolonization of housing, medicine, and food. We make creative use of recycled materials in art and building re-construction. Decolonization is the opposite of gentrification. Check out our digital punk feels and learn more at ecosteader.com a ZERO PROFIT B Corp for Public Benefit Co.
One way to promote sustainability is to use as many locally-sourced and recycled materials as possible. We have many "reclaimed" and quality pieces left over from the deconstruction phase of our HQ build we have cleaned up and want to install to the exterior. Job is about a 6 hour day installing furring and this siding. Bring your own tools.
Covid-19 Precautionary Statement. Masks required to be worn while at the site, at all times
When: Work is weather-specific days/ times
Pay: Options for your day of "contract" pay. Let us know which you want in the reply.
(A) Earn $150 of colonist cash for 6 hours of work; you must clean up your work area before receiving payment. This breaks down to approximately $27.27/hour (6 hours of pay, including a 30 minute break). If you choose colonist cash as payment, no bartering options are available to you for your work/time.
(B) Earn $250 of myrtlewood or unfinished upcycled construction materials for the day of ~6 hours of work. Reclaimed wood projects are very trendy and can go for big bucks on Etsy, especially the "well weathered" wood look that many people desire. Skilled craftsmen will be happy to take this option. Several large and small pieces are available to be reclaimed: clean em up, make art, resell... We can be flexible on the quantity you take, within reason.
(C) Earn some myrtlewood (myrtlewood is still recognized as legal currency in Oregon) , a bonsai tree, and an Ecosteader decal, (one of ONLY 450 in the world). Take this option if you'd simply like to work with some beautiful ancestor wood, learn and practice the Shou soughi ban technique, and to support Ecosteader and its digital mission to honor the native soil relationships of this area which indigenous people call "occupied" territory of the Kalapuya / Clatskanie / Atfalati people.
(D) Very cool BRAND NEW ASSEMBLED five-panel tempered glass door (see picture, costs $349 unassembled); could easily be resold for at least $375.
Important! If you were stoked to celebrate Columbus Day because you thought Columbus "discovered" America a few hundred years ago, this job is not for you. If you weren't taught the true 13,900+ year-long humanitarian history of the continent on which you live (it's far less romantic than the one you were probably told) as it involved the brutal murders, exploitation, and displacement of indigenous peoples in order to steal their land ... is probably a good idea to start schooling yourself on the facts. Modern people can't change the past, but we can educate the youth correctly.
Requirement for permission to enter and work at the Ecostead is not being offended (preferably being in solidarity with) the local Indigenous Land Acknowledgement we have posted.
