Country Living - We live in a log home on 10 acres in a forest setting. Winter is here. We'd like some help with this beautiful forest retreat. We have lawn care on hold but we can use some general help with a variety of home owner tasks like house cleaning, yard work and some projects we hope to accomplish. This time of the year is mainly focused on house cleaning and organizing. Cooking, laundry and bringing in wood are at the top of the list.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
Learn about american country living in a relaxed environment. Spokane is about 30 minutes away with everything from the finest dining and entertainment to normal affordable activities, but so are mountains, meadows, hills, lakes, fishing as well as skiing. We are less than an hour from Idaho and about two hours from the Canada border. We live in the country but someone is usually going to town regularly.
This property is a forest paradise so we need help doing some things in the main house but some of the help will be outside, weather permitting. We built the new chicken house but there are a few details yet to be completed. There are beautiful trails through the forest and some secluded natural garden spots. We want to convert our regular seed lawn into a clover lawn that is more eco-friendly and some of it is done. Now we wait for spring to see the results.
We are looking for someone who sees that something needs to done and will take the initiative to ask how and do it is great! A willing attitude and a great work ethic, is a winner here........oh, and a bit of a sense of humor too!
Some project ideas:
Maintaining forest trails
Improving and developing "Secret Garden" areas throughout the property
Keeping the house organized
Helping with meals
Anything that has to do with chickens or cats and dogs
Building a chicken coop
Japanese style garden
English, very little Spanish and French
You can have your own room in the house but we also have a travel trailer and many tent pitching areas as well for when the weather allows. WiFi is available. Semi-private bathroom and full run of the house and kitchen area. You will of course eat meals with us, but are welcome to use what is in the refrigerator anytime. We are animal lovers, so there are plenty of dogs, cats and chickens so if you have allergies to them, then this is probably not the place for you.
Peaceful walking trails through the forest and deer and wildlife are here. We have a ladder leading high into the trees for wildlife viewing that also makes for a great book reading area. Plenty of yoga quiet areas.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
