Kilo Cabin

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionI live in a rural log cabin 45 minutes from Atlanta with my one-year-old son. I'm working on turning the three-acre property (and a neighboring ten-acre-property) into a retreat space. Since I have a day job and a toddler, I need help!
  • LocationUnited States, Georgia, Newton County, Covington

  • Work
  • Type of work I need help renovating a fiberglass camper (like an Airstream but smaller), installing raised garden beds and possibly an enclosure for small livestock, turning a tool shed into a tiny house, eventually renovating two indoor bathrooms.
  • Hours per day Flexible timing, would like 4-5 hours of work per day, mostly outdoors.
  • Work requirements: Guests should have basic tool skills, comfort with power tools, comfort working outside in heat and moderate cold, ideally a driver's license. Farming, plumbing, and electrical experience are bonuses, but definitely not a requirement. I'm just looking for detail-oriented people who like learning on the fly and love the outdoors! It’s important that you’re able to follow instructions when not supervised, and that you’re comfortable with large dogs.

  • Has pets? I have two large outdoor dogs, who may or may not be present during your stay.
  • Smokes at home? No
  • Accommodation: Check out Kilo Cabin here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/17652113 . You would have full access to the house -- kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi, Netflix, etc, as I would most likely take the baby and dogs and stay nearby at night.
  • Additional info
  • If you want me to provide meals for you, that can be arranged. Otherwise, you are welcome to cook using our groceries. Phone available for domestic calls or with a phone card. You can swim in the lake!
