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 huge initiatives taking place, however I’m relatively understaffed by myself challenge 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 on the lookout for a number of folks (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, plenty 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 record so folks perceive the final day-to-day expectation (and I feel it enjoyable to see different folks’s todo lists): obtain bins, break down bins, determine easy methods to recycle bins, take away bins, replant crops into giant pots, cement glue giant damaged pot again collectively, plaster the pots? paint pots? energy wash again deck, e book painters, decide up paint, put collectively furnishings, assist me transfer a lot furnishings, cling artwork, e book useful particular person, decide 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 transport or in-store, water crops, assist handle subs, preserve styled room styled properly… the record actually goes on and on. It is a place that doesn’t want plenty of fancy design abilities, simply nice problem-solving and self-starting abilities, a really optimistic angle, honesty, the power to learn the room, and plenty of willingness to do something. The hours are versatile – however principally Monday-Thursday, in the course of the daytime. That is $20-25 an hour and can begin as an unbiased 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 easy methods to filter and manage the opposite buildings on the property to get them prepared for initiatives subsequent yr). I feel this can be a nice job for a musician, artist, or maker on the lookout for some consistency in the course of the day or just somebody who likes to maneuver their physique, make some extra cash, and take delight in conserving this girl’s home intact and arranged throughout plenty of disruptive and chaotic manufacturing. May this result in styling assist? Certain, however proper now I would like bodily assist.
- A video and social media inventive manufacturing particular person 1-3 days every week, freelance – with charges TBD. Emily M. has been taking pictures our social after which sending it right down to Mal to edit and put up. Many days it really works, however all of us agree that for large reveals or actually fascinating initiatives (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 in relation to video manufacturing (and subsequently social video) can be simply pretty (and much much less clunky). I don’t want or desire 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 unbiased contractor/freelance. We’d shoot two days every week (9 am-3 pm ideally) then edit outdoors of that.
- A fantastic useful particular person. It is a common gap we’re lacking on the planet. I’m on the lookout for somebody with expertise that has their very own instruments to assist me with all issues house restore. For instance, I would like somebody to vary out our hanging porch couch from chains to rope, cling 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, change out sconces, cling string lights, cling an excellent heavy mirror, energy wash all of the issues, and so forth. This could fluctuate 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 would possibly fluctuate as nicely).
We’re additionally on the lookout for a few houses for initiatives:
- A no demo-reno kitchen to function a brand new kitchen island. The brand new island doesn’t have any plumbing, fuel, or electrical (nevertheless it’s a VERY fairly piece of furnishings with plenty 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, figuring out that you just’d get plenty of product and my providers totally free. We even have a funds as nicely – nevertheless it’s not limitless. In case you have this kitchen please e mail submissions to [email protected] with many many many images and the placement. We will likely be scouting areas Monday and Tuesday (so ship over the weekend – at present and tomorrow – sorry for the push!!!!) 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 youngsters 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 challenge for the summer season and the children received SO excited to assist design and do a shock. I’m hoping to have the ability to do one late this summer season. Ideally, you’ll nominate a household in Portland that might 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 members of the family to assist paint, and so forth). It doesn’t have to 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 could be simply furnishings/paint/decor (i.e. not a transform) and sure 1-2 rooms (just like what we’ve finished earlier than). Ship by way of their story/images in case you can and know that we’ll take submissions for some time and sure not begin till early summer season, and sure execute in August (so in case you don’t hear from us asap don’t be shocked).
I simply wish to pre-thank anybody who submits! It’s going to be an thrilling yr. xx
