The SpaceOld Purple Thumb Works is the creatively renovated Humboldt Pulpworkers union hall. A large barn door separates the apartment from my art studio - it is NOT sound proof. I work in the art studio Monday through Friday, from around 8:30 am to around 5:30 pm, guests are requested be be quiet during these times - other than that you'll have the place to yourselves and can make noise.
There is a full kitchen, radiant heat floors, a VERY comfortable sofa-bed, and a beautifully tiled bathroom and walk-in shower. The ceiling is blue, the walls are white and there is lots of artwork hanging - including figure drawings (tasteful nudes).
Electricity is supplied by a net-zero grid-tied solar PV system. Hot water for your use and for the radiant floor is heated by an air-source heat pump.
Outside there is a picnic table, off street parking, bird feeders and some funny looking plants. Guest AccessThe apartment is self contained, but we encourage you to take a tour of the art studio! If interested, please let us know when you arrive and we'll set a time. I make art rubber stamps, animated films, photographs, life drawings, bird houses, homebrew, pyrography, buttons, and various other things as the muses come and go. I work full time in the studio. Interaction with GuestsWhenever possible, we like to personally greet our guests and show them around the place. I love to show people my art studio, so if you are interested please ask about that. We welcome interaction and want to be helpful; we also understand your need to be left alone sometimes. The NeighborhoodManila is an unincorporated community with a mixed socioeconomic population in Humboldt County. It has hidden gems, and some not-so-hidden messy areas. There are no services at all, no stores, no gas, no laundry, nothing. But the beach and dunes are an easy walk away, less than ten minutes, and there is a near-by park with a disc golf course and access to Humboldt Bay.
Getting AroundThe bus stop is a five minute walk. Arcata is a few miles north, and Eureka is a few miles south. The airport is about a 20 minute drive. Other Things to NoteI don't live here, I just work here, so the kitchen is not fully stocked with food stuff. There is coffee and tea, and few basics which you are welcome to.
