Painting and Odd Jobs

Unfortunately, we still have to make money to support our adventures, so we do odd jobs when we return to Cabbagetown every summer.

During the summer of 2014, Greg teamed up with Paul, another odd job guy/painter in Cabbagetown. Together they specialize in painting the old mill houses of Cabbagetown, hand brushing 100-year-old boards with premium paint, letting the color soak in for a long-lasting finish. They also do interiors, porches, picket fences, and furniture.

Duwan does some of the odder jobs that come their way. One of the oddest being canceling a client’s cable, returning her cable box, buying and setting up four new digital TVs (3 small TVs and one smart TV) to replace four analog TVs, buying and installing a converter box for her remaining analog TV and configuring her new smart TV. Duwan has also helped a client organize and run an estate sale, helped another client ready her mother’s house to put on the market. Duwan also does web development and has helped clients set up and implement their own WordPress blogs and has helped clients problem solve and improve their existing websites.

And, of course, when Duwan and Greg are not available for house sitting, they are still available for pet visits.
