Responsibilities — which amount to approximately 12 hours per week — include a weekly cleaning of the building, regular maintenance of garbage, recycling and compost, and regular cleaning of the kitchen and dining area. House managers will also coordinate community living, including leading a weekly or bi-weekly meeting about shared chores and events in the house.
