When we are not sailing or traveling in our van, we house sit. Mostly we house sit in one small 18 block neighborhood in Atlanta called Cabbagetown. Because this is where the majority if our odd jobs come from, where the majority of our Atlanta friends live, and because we love Cabbagetown so much, we do our house sitting in this community usually (but not always) as a straight trade. We walk, feed, poop, and entertain your pets, get in your mail, water your plants, and generally keep an eye on your house in exchange for a home base and a real house to live in for a little bit while we earn money for our adventures.
We do house sit out side of Cabbagetown from time to time, but as we get further away from our home base we ask for some compensation. The amount is totally negotiable.
Here is a list of a few of the homes we have house sat at in Cabbagetown. We can get you in touch with any of these references on request.
