Laura asked me to post this for her:
Beautiful daylight basement studio (about 450 square feet) available now. I am looking to barter for the usage of our MIL studio. New kitchen, bathroom, western view of mountains. Located in lovely Phinney Ridge neighborhood and close to everything: bus line, grocery store, restaurants and cafes. Barter for 12 hours/week of work.
Combination of housecleaning, laundry, organizing, tutoring and homework management of 2 children (12 and 16) and gardening. We are a very busy, mellow family. Looking for someone who is fairly quiet, reliable and likes pre-teen and teenage children and likes housework. Hours are fairly flexible but must have some weekday evening availability during the school year for homework management. In exchange, you get a bright, beautiful studio with separate entrance, kitchen, gas stove. Bathroom has stone floor and bathtub surround.
Please send me an email with a little about yourself and why this would be a good arrangement for both of us and for what length. I do rental references, work references (if they apply), criminal background check.
