Small farm upkeep and home renovation

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionJust across the water from the bustling city of Seattle lies Kitsap county, a small, somewhat rural community. Our 7-acre farm is a little gem of quietness surrounded by fields, woods, deer, and other animals. We have a main house, which is currently unoccupied, that we are remodeling, painting, and fixing up so that we can move back into it. There is a guest cottage on the property that we are currently living in. Our traveler/helper would stay in one of the furnished bedrooms in the main house, while we work on getting the place ready. It needs painting, mostly. There are other tasks to do on the farm as well that include some landscaping, as we're preparing the place to host weddings.

While the kitchen is also being renovated, it is still usable. We would provide food for the travelers to prepare on their own, and also provide some meals as well. We would make sure people are fed.
