I live in Georgetown, Texas, a smaller community north of Austin, with a beautiful town square with shops and restaurants that gives it the small town feel and also has lots of shopping and entertainment nearby. San Gabriel river runs through the town and there are parks and trails available for enjoying the great outdoors. Many interesting sites and venues in Austin are only a 20-30 minute drive. Visitors will need their own transportation to enjoy the area.
My home is 1600 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, built in the 80's. I currently work from home.
The projects with which I need help are: whitewash an interior wood wall, re-stain an outside wood deck, some painting of window trim, help me install interior doorway transitions and quarter-round trim (new flooring has been installed). If anyone has landscape experience I could certainly use some suggestions on what to do with my backyard :-)
Be aware I am not vaccinated for covid. I am a friendly, positive, active individual. I enjoy interesting conversation and a glass of wine or a cold beer at the end of the day. I do not cook much, it's just not my thing, I provide a food allowance and would be happy for someone to cook evening meals occasionally. I will prepare an evening meal but not daily. If you tell me what you like to eat for breakfast and lunch, we can go together and purchase those items. You can prepare those meals for yourself. For accommodations I offer a private bedroom with queen bed. Guests use the hall/common bathroom. The common areas consist of an open living/kitchen/dining area, a screened in back porch and a wood deck plus the backyard. We have full rapid household internet and TV in the living room.

There are numerous opportunities to explore this area of Texas, which is the Live Music Capitol of the US. Georgetown has the San Gabriel river meandering through the community and there are numerous parks and trails developed for walking, hiking, biking or lingering on the river to enjoy swimming or fishing. There are many locally owned shops and restaurants, as well as larger merchants.
Nearby Austin boasts the largest Mexican free-tail bat colony, which lives under a bridge downtown and delights viewers with their nightly flight to catch insects. It's also the capitol of Texas, and the capitol building is the largest in the US, with a beautiful rotunda. Spend a few nights in Austin's entertainment district, where you can hear all genres of music 7 nights of the week.

I provide all tools and materials needed.
Accommodations include a private bedroom with a queen bed. A full bathroom is in the hall. I do not prepare meals every day. We can shop for food or I can provide a food allowance. Workawayer will be responsible for preparing his/her own meals for most days.
Absolutely no smoking of any kind is allowed inside the house or on the screened porch; must be outside, on the deck or yard.
We can decide on your work schedule together, which days, hours, and times to work. If you prefer to work several long days then take several days off, that's okay, too. I am not a micro-manager so it is important to be a "self-starter" with initiative. We set out a plan together and you work the plan. Also it's important to see the daily tasks that need to be done and do them.
I am a dog person, at the moment I do not have a dog, my golden-doodle of 15 years recently passed. I do dog-sit for friends occasionally.
If you have a dog, it must be completely house-broken and be friendly to other dogs. No other types of pets are allowed.
