      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Job Announcement:: Passive House Carpentry Crew

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to round out a crew of carpenters for a Passive House project this spring/summer in Yakima. A Passive House is a high performance, super energy efficient way of building. Passive House buildings consume 60%-80% less energy than buildings built to code, and are the most sure fire way of achieving net zero status. Learn more about them here: What is a Passive House?


This will be a full time position with an average of 40 hrs per week for 7-10 months beginning in late March/early April and continuing thru to the end of construction. Housing can be arranged if necessary, for a deduction in wage. All levels of experience will be considered, from laborer to apprentice to journeyman. If desired, the position could potentially lead to a permanent carpenter position in Seattle.


Duties to include assisting with:

-Fastfoot monopour with icf stem wall foundation

-Double stud wall construction

-Air sealing to less than .6 ACH at 50 Pa

-Rain screen siding

-Clay plaster finishes

-General carpentry related to single family residential construction.


Job Requirements:

- Ability to communicate well and to ask questions

-Desire and willingness to learn about building science and green building


-A strong work ethic

-Ability to thrive when the path forward is unclear

-Personal tools commensurate with experience

-A personal vehicle



Pay will depend upon experience and will fall within the $12-$25 range. Paid vacation (3 hrs 40 hrs worked) along with full health and dental benefits after 3 months. Pay is weekly.


I'm posting here because (1) climbers generally make for good carpenters; (2) climbers (that I’ve known) tend to exhibit the character requirements listed above; and (3) I want partners for after work sessions in Tieton.


If you’re interested, know of someone who might be, or have questions, please email:
