Where we want to take the Art of War next



We are working on taking the Art of War to the next level. Brian has purchased a piece of property in the mountains of Washington state he wants to use as a retreat for war veterans. It is truly peace on earth. The perfect place for people to just loose the stresses of life and relax. 


A work in progress

There is main house on the property as well as a small shop, a small cottage, and a teepee. It is our dream to make the shop larger and add a tree house so we can offer more space and places to sleep. When the shop is done at the cabin veterans will be able to work in the cabin shop, as well as work at the Woodinville shop. Days will be spent making various projects and evening spent around the camp fire sharing stories of our travels.


When complete

We  will be able to run a 2-3 day retreat for up to 3 couples not just for the war veteran but their significant others as well. Veterans with issues are not easy to live with and partners need to know that they are not alone. So for every war veteran dealing with PTSD there is another life also affected. Veterans have quite a few avenues of support. Unfortunately not the case for the person living with that veteran. It will be an all inclusive kind of thing. The veteran will never pay a dime for anything we do here. Meals, lodging, art supplies, are all taken care of. Hopefully at some point we can also afford to bring veterans here from different parts of the US.

Help us make the retreat a reality

Your support and contributions will help us have the ability to fund this project and expand to even reach more veterans that would benefit.  

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

To also help fund this endeavor we will rent out the cabin and teepee starting summer of 2019 and when complete the tree house.

Who can rent

The property, all or part can be rented by anyone any time that we are not using for veterans events or family events as it is Brian's vacation house.

The main house

The main house is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath 2000 plus square foot home with 2 queen beds and ample room for kids to sleep, full kitchen, and, 2 large TV's. 


The TeePee is located right on the bank of the South Stilliquamish river with a queen bed. There is a bathroom and kitchen available ( just not located in the teepee). The teepee will be available to rent late summer of 2019.
