We are a homeschooling family of 5 people and 3 cats who live in suburban Queens in 75-year old house and we could use help with the general maintenance/repairs.
The structure is sound, but it needs lots of cosmetic work and repairs.
There is no dearth of work that needs to be done.

We do *NOT* need help with daily household assistance, child care, or cooking. We prefer HelpXers in their 30s or older or couples. If you are still in your 20s and interested, please discuss your work ethic and work knowledge/experience in your request.

**** Please note that we are don't have any availability between now and mid May 2020 ******

We have an old farmhouse about 1.5 hours from Philadelphia, in the southeast corner of Pennsylvania - please note that map just shows our general location. Our minimum stay is usually a week, however we do occasionally welcome helpers for a day or a weekend for the sort of projects where many hands make light work. And people who have helpxed with us before are always welcome to return - there is always a place for you to stay if you are passing through our area and if you want to stay longer that's great too. We do occasionally host helpers with canine companions, however we do have a cat, so this only works with cat-friendly dogs. We do expect doggie helpers to be on groundhog and deer patrol!

Jeff has a background in land preservation, and in his spare time is a photographer, plays guitar, volunteers for a new farmer development program and for our local environmental advisory counc... more inside

My husband and I bought a 130 year old house, and there`s a lot to be done.

Here are some projects we could use a helper or two (if you can share a Queen sized bed) for:

Currently: We have holes in some ceilings downstairs from when squirrels chewed through some pipes (was not fun).
After That: We would love to pull up the carpets and see what can be done about the hardwood floors underneath. If you have skills in this area too, please stay longer to head up this project!

We offer a private bedroom with a queen size bed, linens, a private bathroom, drawer space, a TV, and kitchen access in exchange for 6 hours of work a day (M-F). You`ll be working on your own for the most part, as Keith and I both have full time jobs, so you must be self-sufficient. We will provide the tools and materials you`ll need to get the job done!

If you have the skills to help us with the aforementioned items, shoot us an email! :)

We are long-time urban homesteaders committed to revitalizing our neighborhood, which is nestled along the west bank of Genesee River in southwest Rochester. We have rejuvenated over 30 homes, nurtured fruits, vegetables, flowers and bees on unused land, and have tried to breathe new life into an area in need of re-investment and community-building. Nearly every week we host a potluck dinner for friends and renters. In addition to hosting HelpX and other volunteers, we've had renters from over 40 countries, and presently (Feb.2018) we have tenants from Cameroon, China, Colombia, Germany, Ghana, Honduras, Nigeria, Pakistan, Senegal, Somalia and Uruguay, and of course throughout the United States.

HelpXers would assist us with tasks ranging from

Both of my kids have moved out on their own/college. I am working full-time as well as spending 30 hours a week working on a degree online. I have two extra bedrooms and could use some help.

My primary need is yard work. I could also use some help with some patch and paint touchups in the house, simple ongoing kitchen tidying, simple cleaning.

If someone is handy/DIY, I could use help finishing a currently-unfinished closed-in garage.

You would be able to pick and choose the tasks that matched your interests and skills. Careful work and high attention to detail is more important to me than fast work.

At this time I'm not able to host someone who needs direction and supervision on a daily basis. The help I need is essentially a roomate who with basic introductions, is able to just jump in and help out, taking initiative on their own.

I am on a keto, organic, from-scratch diet that isn't everyone's cup of tea. I will provide plenty of food and sn... more inside
