New homesteaders in Portland, OR

Hello everyone!

We’ve just started our foray into THS with opening up our home. Joshua is an architect and Jess is a chemistry professor. From a cursory scroll, it doesn’t appear there are any Portlanders here. We live in the St. Johns neighborhood in Portland and are looking forward to more travel. However, we also have 6 animals—cat, dog, and four chickens—and an extensive garden. That means a lot of planning if we travel. We’re hoping this brings us some freedom. Looking forward to connecting and exploring.

Hi @Monkfish a very warm welcome to our Community Forum, thank you for joining us from the wonderful city of Portland, Oregon we have many TrustedHousesitters members in Portland and across OR and hopefully we will have more join us here on the forum.

A family of cat, dog and chickens … many sitters love sitting chickens, the first time I looked after a flock of rescued chickens I was completely won over, they are absolutely fascinating, especially when they decide to come and supervise the cooking.

Enjoy being here, we’d love to see some pictures of the family and look forward to sharing in your TrustedHousesitters journey.

Angela and the Team

Hi Monkfish!
I’m just up the road in Seattle. I have stayed in Airbnbs in St. Johns and really loved the neighborhood.
