Help Us Fit Out a Monk's Hut

As many of you may know, my friends Yogamaya and Hamsavatar have kindly offered me space at their farm near Rutherfordton, North Carolina as a base for my teaching and writing. I have been staying in their guest room, but they have a plan to turn a storage shed behind their garage into a bhajan kutir (monk’s hut). This will include gutting the shed, putting in a proper floor, wall studs, insulation, wallboard, and a closet, as well as sealing the windows and installing a heating/air-conditioning unit and a small sink (which will also require some plumbing). When we’re able, we would also like to convert another small out building into a little bath house, so I’ll be even more self sufficient. We have a contractor ready to go, but we can’t book him until we have some money get him started. Please help however you can, so we can get this old monk out of the house. Thank you.
