With our “Have Workshop Will Travel” business model we work with the owner/builders and wait until they have the construction site prepped and ready to go.   
For 2020 we are negotiating with owner/builders in Central Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin. 
There is also the potential for a workshop near Manitowoc, Wisconsin at English Lake.  It will be the cordwood infill of a timber-framed cabin. This link will give you a taste of the project. https://cordwoodconstruction.org/cordwood-tool-shed
