    Description

    We are currently looking for general help around the house and outside. We have two houses across the street from each other. There’s lots of outside work to do at either house. Clearing some dead branches, working on the watering system, sorting stuff in the carport, planting small bushes and trees, sorting a storage space full of tools and electronics, and lots of other stuff. 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 and brushing my horse or care of 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, apricots, apples, almonds, pistachios, pomegranates, 6 kinds of grapes, We also have a garden and grow lots of different vegetables. Unfortunately, the drought Has killed a lot, and we had to replace 17 trees. We’d like to plant more.
    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. We’re also turning the barn into a guest cottage. 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. We could really use your help.

    (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. How about small solar setups? 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.

    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.
    Nearby, within an hour or so drive is the Tecopa Hot Springs, Death Valley National Park, China Ranch, The Ski Lodge on Mount Charleston, The Amargosa Opera House, Zabriskie Point, Dante's View, Red Rock Canyon National Park, Calico Basin, Hoover Dam,and of course Fabulous Las Vegas.
    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.
