Put up an ad or lawn sign for general repair work.  I havent actually advertised but my neighbors keep me pretty busy fixing cars, small engines, guns, saws, quads, welding jobs etc etc. Typically with a "whenever you can get to it" timeline. Sometimes i tell em im covered up for the next 2 weeks and its no problem.  Not much money but it buys those milk sandwiches,fills the gascans and propane bottles when im not otherwise able to do the stuff i want to.  And if you can be home doin it the savings/convenience is pretty good. My days revolve around school busses.

One guy from church has brought me another job with every single one he has picked up for like 2 months now. Then his neighbor started.

Just a few ideas for your build you may want to use solid metal on the roof to provide shade and cover from rain. You also may want to consider a log arch to provide lift on the trees so the don't dig into the ground.
