    1 week a month, 9-5. Handyman, gutters, and gardening jobs make up the rest.

    Inherited a round from my old crew manager last September with just over fifty properties, clean them on a six week cycle and takes about seven days. Do this as well as Wholetime firefighter (42 hours a week) and retained firefighter jobs (80 hours on call). Would like to build the round a bit more as I make more doing that than anything else but need to keep everyone happy (especially my better half) and she doesn't like me to do anything but seems to enjoy giving my earnings away.

    The shift pattern is the same and gives you time to do something else, a few do window cleaning, some carry on with a trade they already had, I believe black cab driving is popular in London. I used to be a carpenter and did that occasionally but I reckon the window cleanings better (ongoing work, no materials to cost, order, pick up etc) and tools are relatively cheap (had van broken into twice and power tools stolen twice) doing the carpentry.
