Outsourcing Housework Freed Up Precious Time For This Busy Homeowner

Busy homeowner Michelle holds down parenting, full-time work and studying towards her PhD. She shares with us how she used Builderscrack to outsource her housework so she could focus on the important stuff... How It Started To say Michelle is a driven person is an understatement. Sitting across from a woman that packs so much into her days is inspiring, not only because of that drive but the clever way she has arranged her life to make it possible. She tells me "I’m doing a full-time PhD and I’m doing full-time work, so for me, I have lots to do and absolutely no time. I also have a teenager who’s almost 16, who is extremely social. Every weekend there are at least five to seven friends invited, and they are having a sleepover. I come home, and I'm like, “I left it nice and tidy, what happened?”.  Michelle and her son moved into their home three years ago, and with a laugh explains “how things were starting to fall apart and in need of repair”. It wasn't only hard finding the tim

Regular weed eating of lawn

Posted 1 day ago

We have a three terraced property with not particularly easy access for a lawn-mower - which we understand. We're seeking someone to weed-eat (or mow if they'd prefer) the lawns and trim some hedges occasionally on request (or not if that isn't part of their service offering). There isn't a huge area to do as on one of the terraces there's a studio. It's also not a lawn that we're super careful about as it's mainly made up of weeds like dandelion not grass. Ideally, we'd like someone...
