Help redecorate our Hostel built in the 70's

Our Hostel in Leadville is located in Colorful Colorado. It is the highest hostel
in the USA right in the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountain wonderland. My husband and I and our 3 year old son live on site and just became the new owners of this property back in June 2018. Since then, we have done quite a bit of work on the place but there are many more projects that need to be done.

There are many projects from remodeling/redecorating our rooms to socializing with our guests while making sure the common areas are always spotless.
The redecorating/remodeling includes but not limited to painting the walls, pulling off old wall paper, moving furniture, and amateur building skills like building shelves, hanging pictures, etc.

Food is not included for our work-for-stay guests but we have a commercial sized all access kitchen including a large guest fridge, 3 sinks and large stove along with any utensil, pots, and pans to cook anything to your hearts content.
Our work-for-stay guests sleep in one of our 4 dorm rooms (we have a ladies dorm, mens dorm and a co-ed dorm room) with gender specific bathrooms down the hall.

Ski Cooper is a fun and inexpensive place to ski right here in Leadville. Also, we are only 20 - 25 minutes away from Ski Copper (not to be confused with Cooper). There are public shuttles that run every day from our downtown area to Ski Copper and to Frisco for only $5. If skiing isn't your thing, we have tons of other outdoor activities in the winter time like sledding, tubing, cross country skiing, ice skating, snow mobiling or just sitting by our wood stove downstairs drinking hot cocoa!
