Hey all, as issues ramp up once more over right here after a little bit of a inventive sabbatical. I’m excited that there are some large tasks occurring, however I’m somewhat understaffed by myself undertaking and whereas I’ve been doing a ton of home stuff on the weekends to attempt to keep on prime of all of it, I’m searching for a couple of individuals (in addition to a few homes for makeovers) to assist. These are all Portland-based (ideally near SW). Right here’s what I’m hoping to search out:
- A home supervisor/private assistant. Half-time (10-15 hours on slower weeks, as much as 25 on busier weeks). There may be a lot to do over right here, quite a lot of it very bodily that I can’t do alone or it doesn’t make sense for me to spend my time. I made a to-do listing so individuals perceive the final day-to-day expectation (and I feel it enjoyable to see different individuals’s todo lists): obtain bins, break down bins, determine recycle bins, take away bins, replant vegetation into massive pots, cement glue massive damaged pot again collectively, plaster the pots? paint pots? energy wash again deck, guide painters, choose up paint, put collectively furnishings, assist me transfer a lot furnishings, dangle artwork, guide helpful particular person, choose up groceries, put groceries away, manage prop closet, transfer extra furnishings, prep for shoots (which can embody cleansing that room), promote furnishings on Fb, coordinate furnishings with upholstery firm, manage all props, taking out trash when full, clear up after lunches on shoot days, stroll canine if wanted, assist execute some extra DIY concepts, run errands, return issues through delivery or in-store, water vegetation, assist handle subs, preserve styled room styled properly… the listing actually goes on and on. It is a place that doesn’t want quite a lot of fancy design abilities, simply nice problem-solving and self-starting abilities, a really optimistic angle, honesty, the power to learn the room, and quite a lot of willingness to do something. The hours are versatile – however largely Monday-Thursday, through the daytime. That is $20-25 an hour and can begin as an impartial contractor. Clearly, something can occur from there, however this isn’t a styling or design place – it’s an enormous ole helper that’s a lot wanted round our home as we gear up for increasingly shoots (and beginning to consider filter and manage the opposite buildings on the property to get them prepared for tasks subsequent 12 months). I feel it is a nice job for a musician, artist, or maker searching for some consistency through the day or just somebody who likes to maneuver their physique, make some more money, and take pleasure in maintaining this girl’s home intact and arranged throughout quite a lot of disruptive and chaotic manufacturing. May this result in styling assist? Certain, however proper now I want bodily assist.
- A video and social media inventive manufacturing particular person 1-3 days every week, freelance – with charges TBD. Emily M. has been capturing our social after which sending it all the way down to Mal to edit and publish. Many days it really works, however all of us agree that for large reveals or actually attention-grabbing tasks (like hanging an epic gallery wall or a day of rearranging furnishings in a room) having somebody who’s tapped into the inventive right here relating to video manufacturing (and due to this fact social video) could be simply pretty (and much much less clunky). I don’t want or need a full manufacturing crew – as an alternative, a enjoyable particular person to assist direct our video content material to be higher, inform me what to do, and assist with consistency, particularly round partnership, and reveal content material. Probably hourly pay or day price, and work as an impartial contractor/freelance. We’d shoot two days every week (9 am-3 pm ideally) then edit exterior of that.
- An important helpful particular person. It is a common gap we’re lacking on this planet. I’m searching for somebody with expertise that has their very own instruments to assist me with all issues residence restore. For instance, I want somebody to alter out our hanging porch couch from chains to rope, dangle some tremendous heavy artwork, re-caulk some areas after settling, paint small dry partitions areas, assist my brother body out our greenhouse, change out sink water filters, swap out sconces, dangle string lights, dangle an excellent heavy mirror, energy wash all of the issues, and so forth. This may differ per week, however I’d actually love somebody constant who is aware of the home (and relying on the place we land with #1, the wants may differ as nicely).
We’re additionally searching for a few properties for tasks:
- A no demo-reno kitchen to function a brand new kitchen island. The brand new island doesn’t have any plumbing, fuel, or electrical (however it’s a VERY fairly piece of furnishings with quite a lot of storage). The kitchen would get a beauty improve (paint cupboards, new lighting, new tile if wanted, up to date home equipment if wanted) however no partitions or plumbing moved (ideally). Nice pure mild is a large plus and the power to shoot an island from many angles (ideally not a galley kitchen). Timing is ASAP for a June shoot (so that you’d get an up to date kitchen in 3 months!!). You would want to contribute a development funds, realizing that you simply’d get quite a lot of product and my companies without spending a dime. We even have a funds as nicely – however it’s not countless. If in case you have this kitchen please e mail submissions to email@example.com with many many many images and the situation. We might be scouting places Monday and Tuesday (so ship over the weekend – right this moment and tomorrow – sorry for the frenzy!!!!) The deadline is that this coming Monday 3/6!
- A feel-good household makeover room/s. I used to be watching a few of our older makeover movies with our children the opposite day for the primary time (Sylvia’s and our first flash makeover) and y’all they’re so enjoyable and simply extremely rewarding. We determined it’s the right household undertaking for the summer time and the youngsters acquired SO excited to assist design and do a shock. I’m hoping to have the ability to do one late this summer time. Ideally, you’ll nominate a household in Portland that would use this of their life and also you’d be concerned in serving to and garnering assist from others relying on what it requires (i.e. different relations to assist paint, and so forth). It doesn’t should be somebody in whole dire straights – simply somebody who’s possibly in a difficult place in life and unable to do that for themselves. This may be simply furnishings/paint/decor (i.e. not a rework) and certain 1-2 rooms (much like what we’ve performed earlier than). Ship by way of their story/images for those who can and know that we’ll take submissions for some time and certain not begin till early summer time, and certain execute in August (so for those who don’t hear from us asap don’t be shocked).
I simply need to pre-thank anybody who submits! It’s going to be an thrilling 12 months. xx
