Library only Exchange

Healthy Cooking, Cleaning &/or Office Work in exchange for Free Rent & Utilities!

I do this exchange because I am a workaholic and need lots of help with my businesses and I don't take the time to eat (properly)

I have been doing this for many years and it works great for people who need flexibility in their schedule for auditions or any other reason but is not suitable for someone with a full time job.

I currently have three exchange people living here doing the exchange, helping in computer programing, editing, journalism, and cleaning so your work could be shared depending on your skills.

If you love to prepare healthy foods and don't mind house work


If you have skills as an office/personal assistant, journalist, editor, selling products on eBay, computer programing, or organization (lots and lots of organization needed)


If you Love the idea of living in nature but only 3 minutes to Hollywood...

Then you can have your rent and utilities paid and live for free in exchange for 25 flexible hours of work per week if you are a single person or 40 hours per week if you are two.

You can earn a salary for hours you work above your exchange hours and I prefer that you do work the additional hours if possible.

The home is Drug and Smoker free (both in and out of the home.)

Great location in Laurel Canyon, 3 minutes to Sunset, 5 minutes to Ventura Blvd but a feeling that you are in the middle of the country. All you see from the windows are trees.

The home was built in 1912 as a hunting lodge.

The rooms are now very cluttered with things that need to be organized.

The home is decorated with antiques and has hardwood floors and a wood burning fireplace.
The first floor has the living room, dining room,


and breakfast room.

There are 5 acres of land & lots of gardens & hiking trails.

There is one  room currently available for this exchange:

  The room is actually a library, and has a large picture window looking out at beautiful trees and is 12'x12'. It can be furnished or unfurnished. There is a bathroom outside off the kitchen that is used for this room.

The exchange covers the cost of:

and laundry
a phone is not included & would be up to you to pay for if you want one.

The home is less than 5 minutes from the dog park & there are lots of hiking trails, if you want to hike on our trails you can go up the mountain and down in about 15-30 minutes depending on how far & fast you want to go.

Plenty of parking on private property. Many of the duties listed would be shared with others.

Here is a list of the domestic duties which would be shared with the others currently doing this exchange:

  • The food preparation is for me and my girlfriend and includes feeding us as many times a week as possible I prefer 3 meals & 2 snacks or 6 small meals and the majority of the food to be healthy i.e. raw, veggie, etc..
