We are a mature, hard working married couple who have owned homes, two of which my husband has built, solo. Our most recent home was a labor of love, renovating a house that was built in 1889. 

Stephanie is an artist and art educator/environmental club advisor on sabbatical and Brett holds a degree in Wildlife Biology but makes a living working for himself, building and designing small residential projects. We both are very interested in wildlife and it's preservation. Even though we both have traveled extensively we are excited to live in other countries, seeing other lifestyles up close and personal, and witness the culture and political structures. Brett is great at navigating new languages, while I struggle a bit more, I make an effort. Currently we are both studying Spanish. We also want to step back from our present life and figure out our next house location. 

We can bring many skills to the care of your home and property. Brett can build, repair, problem solve, and maintain.  We are both seasoned gardeners, all living creatures lovers, who enjoy being active. Stephanie is also hoping to work on her own art in a new inspiring location. 

We are interested in house sitting because we want to get away from consumer culture, close mindedness, and environmental apathy to name a few. We know how to run a home. We are neat, clean, quiet, and handy! We don't smoke or party, however, we enjoy being social and meeting new people and seeing new places. 

Let us show you how competent we are.
