Hello Travelers! We need help with a cleaning, gardening, painting & organization at my house in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Help in the house
Raleigh, North Carolina is a beautiful city with many green spaces and natural beauty. The ocean is 134 miles away, and the mountains of Asheville are 248 miles away. However, there are wonderful parks and forests close by to hike and swim. If it is a positive experience, I am also happy to act as a work/personal reference for you.
FLUENT ENGLISH INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS OVER THE AGE OF 21 ONLY, priority given for experienced workaway volunteers with good reviews, and especially those with handyman or house improvement skills.
We need help with general house care: cleaning, light painting, organizing garage & general maintenance. I have a small garden that could always use some love and care. Typical volunteer day is 8 am to 12 noon then the rest of the day is your free time to sight see and enjoy the area. I am happy to provide you with tips about the city, and we might occasionally share a meal, but I also have a busy job and also need some private time as well :)
HOUSE RULES: NO smoking, NO drugs, NO drama and NO outside guests permitted. Quiet time is after 10 pm. A passport or ID and outgoing plane/bus ticket or plans will need to be provided upon arrival or an explanation of travel plans. This is my home, not a hostel, so please be a good guest!
Due to the number of applicants, please include your dates of availability, whether you have been to Chicago before or have friends here, your present location and what you consider your strongest skills so that I can find the tasks that best fit your personality and ability.

My house is a peaceful, quiet, and kind home. It is not a party hostel. It is a typical house located 7 miles from the city center. Sleeping arrangements depend on the number of volunteers that are staying in the house. Bedrooms are separated by sex, expect for male/female couples traveling together, who will have a separate bedroom. The volunteers will have a shared bathroom with shower, toilet, sinks and bathtub. All towels & bed linens provided, free laundry.
There is a large kitchen for you to prepare meals and keep your food. Food for breakfast will be provided for volunteers to prepare on their own - eggs, fruit, cereal, bread, rice, peanut butter, jam, milk, coffee and tea. If you have special dietary needs (gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, etc.) it is your responsibility. There are many grocery stores and cafes nearby to purchase food for the rest of your meals. We usually have a weekly lunch or dinner together as a group and enjoy sharing recipes with the volunteers.
Raleigh offers many opportunities for architecture, cultural activities, restaurants, lake & park activities, festivals, concerts and universities. There is an abundance of free and low-cost things to do. Volunteer responsible for transportation - buses, trains and bicycle rentals. Everything you need is within walking distance.
