 My job is a little like a "Homeowner 101" class, except there is no teacher! We'll be learning together while we maintain my home. 

More about the job and its general requirements are below, but there are some absolute "must haves". I'm so sorry I am unable to consider candidates without these. Please -


  • Have your own car. (If I get hurt, you become an ambulance.)


  • Live locally - Berkeley or Oakland. I never want to hear "Sorry I'm late - I was stuck in traffic."

  • Be able to commit to the Saturday HWH schedule one week in advance.

  • Be available long-term. Summer only employment is not an option.

  • Be reasonably fit (I won't lie - being a home owner is HARD work!)

For the past five years, I have had the honor of working with several helpers who have helped me attack my never-ending list.  I provide the tools, materials, expertise (ha!), and brainstorms, and they provided the brawn, agility, sounding board, and extra set of hands.

I initially intended to blog about our projects at www.pinktoolbelted.com, but regrettably don't have time.

Here's more about this position:


  • NO EXPERTISE and absolutely NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE preferred. We'll learn together.

  • Have a brain and not be afraid to use it. 

  • No TOOLS required.

  • An appreciation that women can do anything and everything is an absolute MUST!

  • Willingness to help with a wide range of tasks including (but not limited to) planting plants, hanging things, painting prep, correcting past handy-person horrors, etc. 

  • Ability to lift 50 pounds or more. 

  • No fear of 10’ (SECURED!) ladder (my ladder safely holds a 200# person).

  • Agility to easily tackle floor level tasks.

  • Dexterity to occasionally fit into tight spaces.  

  • Desire to overcome any phobias of spiders and other bugs. (You won't be allowed to kill them at my house.) 

Several past successful HWHs have been students from one of the local colleges. If you are one, you will ideally be able to work throughout the school year. Sumer only employment is not an option.
