  • Description


    Hello, I'm a busy veterinarian that has a small practice in Bend, Oregon. Between running a business and trying to unwind a bit on my time off, I don't have much time to get around to house projects much.

    I am hoping to meet someone that enjoys athletic adventures and doesn't mind helping me with some projectrs around the house in exchange for a place to stay. I have a bunch of yard work and organization of my household to do. I am also doing a bit of a remodel, so any carpentry, drywall or other buidling experience would be super helpful. AK

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    While not super culturally diverse, Bend is an outdoors paradise. I'm happy to share any of my experiences with them. I have lived in Many different environments around the US and internationally, so I am very accepting of different cultures. I have had a Turkish roommate in college who was wonderful to live with.

    The projects I would like to complete are:
    Painting interior
    Starting a garden in the backyard (just a planter box)
    Organizing storage areas and putting items up for sale that no are no longer needed
    Sorting family mementos & collectibles for either projects to display, or sale/disposal
    Pet Sitting while I'm out of town

  • Accommodation


    I own a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom cottage near downtown Bend. The location is excellent for taking advantage of all Bend has to offer. I am walking or biking distance to most of the popular attractions such a famous breweries, restaurants, Drake park, downtown, the river trail, surf wave and old Mill area.

    The available bedroom is small but fit's a full size bed w/brand new memory foam mattress. The home is entirely furnished and all cooking/eating utensils are available for use. There is a deck out back with firepit and grille. I also have an apple and pear tree that produce fruit in the fall. Dishwasher/washer/dryer and stove/microwave are all here. It's a great cozy spot.

    I do have 2 indoor only cats that I live with so being cat friendly and aware that they are not to go outside is very important.

    House Rules -
    Cleanliness at all times is expected from house guests - no dishes left in sink or messes left around and such. Bathroom is shared so cleanliness here is very important as well.
    Considerate of working schedule - I work 5 days a week, so being considerate of sleep schedule is important.
    Considerate of Pets - 2 cats must not be let out through door or windows left open.

    I enjoy social interactions with guests, but everyone needs down time as well so someone that understands a good balance of those things would be great as well.

    I have a mobile hotspot.
