    Description

    We are currently looking for general help around the house and outside. We have a lot that we'd like to work on, but no matter what your skills are....or are not, there is always something to do around here. General feeding of my horse or the chickens, watering the garden, light house cleaning, or whatever you can do will help us.

Our experience has shown that people who request far in advance, rarely show up. Last minute requests are ok, if we have space. *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️

    We have a small ranch in the Mojave Desert. We have a horse, 60 chickens, and a bunch of cats, and a dog named Mugsy, that loves to play ball. We have 8 kids, but none living at home. They're all grown and gone.
    We grow peaches, plums, apricots, apples, nectarines, almonds, pistachios, mulberries, pomegranates, 6 kinds of grapes, and blackberries. We also have a very large garden and grow lots of different vegetables,
    We live about an hour from Death Valley, about an hour from Las Vegas, 5 hours from los Angeles. There is no transportation to or from Pahrump.You either need your own car, or perhaps hitch a ride.
    My husband built our home, and barn, but has had several major operations and can no longer do the lifting and other tasks needed to finish the house. We would be so thankful if someone could help us with that. It's mostly inside help, like flooring, sheet rock, taping, painting, and a little finish carpentry, like shelves.
    There is always something to do here.

    (If you have these skills, that would be terrific, but don't worry if you don't. There's always stuff that needs doing) We are looking for someone with good carpentry skills who can do flooring, sheetrock, taping, painting, finish carpentry, wall papering...any or all of these skills. Tasks would be done early in the day, because it can get quite warm here in the desert... and the rest of the day and weekend are yours to do whatever you like.
    An auto mechanic or auto body person is a skill we could certainly always use, as long as you are willing to help with other general chores too.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I have to admit, there is not a lot to do around here in the way of nightlife. There is a museum, a few casinos, bars, a bowling alley, and plenty of restaurants. If you come with your own transportation, there are lots of places to explore, hike, relax. Our home is very quiet. It's very peaceful here.

    We don't smoke, drink, or take drugs, and don't allow them on our property.
    We have cats and a dog in our home. If you don't like animals, or if you have allergies, this is NOT the place for you.
