Greetings! My husband and I are both semi-retired (we have our own businesses). We love our home, pets, and garden, but we also like to travel, so it's important that we have trustworthy people to look out for them. We have used a local family for years to come in and feed the animals, but for longer trips, we like to have someone stay in our home.
Our Home & Location
We live in a Deck House, which is a post-and-beam kit house that was very fashionable in the 70s. It's a split-level. The upstairs has an open plan living/dining/kitchen area, and the master bedroom, full bath, and Chris' office. Downstairs includes Chris' mancave with the big TV, guest room, my home office, exercise room, full bath, and utility room. There is a deck facing the back yard. There is a screened-in porch, but we use that mostly for storage.
We live on 6 acres of mostly wooded land. The backyard has a fire pit and garden. The house is set back quite a ways from the street, so it's very private.
Responsibilities & Pets
Your primary responsibilities are to take care of the cats and fish, water the house plants (and outdoors, as required), and bring in the mail.
