  • Description


    We would like to host a Work-awyer who home design and construction experience. We have a 12x 10 foot guest house in our yard. We want to design a small kitchen and living area inside. We would like someone who is an architect , or who can design and possibly help build a kitchen and living space.

    My husband and I are retired from the fitness business. Our family is three children ages 27, 26, and 19. My 27 year old daughter and son are away at school and my 19 year old daughter is in college and lives at home. We also have two young family members, 15 and 16 living with us while they attend high school. You would have your own room in our beautiful house and would share a bathroom with the two boys. We are very casual, open minded and like to have fun.

  • Help


    Visit Los Angeles and help build our tiny guest house.
    We may want to do a few things around the house, which is shared by everyone living here but mainly we need design help and the rest of the time you can travel and relax.

    If you have experience in music and can teach piano, that would be fun but is not necessary.
