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”.

Regular cut & weed to keep 1 acre of sloping ground under control

Posted 2 weeks ago

While we are away for some months we need someone to keep our section from getting out of hand and healthy. This means regular strim/brush cutter work along with pulling some weeds and preventing Kikuyu from reclaiming the trees. This will require some labour and fitness, the section is sloping, so no motor mower. It has a lot of trees and you will need to take care to avoid irrigation pipes and cutting young trees. Either regular weekly work or a monthly binge. Tools can be provided.
