Fixing up a historic four-bedroom house from 1912.
This is a live-in fixer-upper--i.e., it has all the basics (plumbing, electricity, doors, roof) in place, and I'm gradually fixing/restoring all aspects of it, including gut renovations of some sections, and cosmetic improvements all around. I'm occasionally renting one bedroom on airbnb. Need help painting, cleaning, stripping old paint with a heat gun, plastering, electrical, tiling/grouting...you name it, it's needed!

Also interested in establishing a raised-bed garden in back yard. While i have some gardening experience from my youth, I have never worked with raised beds, and would be glad for both physical assistance and advice in this regard.

If you're interested in such projects--and especially if you have any particular skills that could be applied here--I'd be glad to discuss further with you. Detroit is an amazing place--a vibrant city that's a once and future king among world cities!
