Currently restoring an old house in Maine. 30-ish hours.

Housework including dishes and laundry? Maybe 4–8.

Not enough. Mostly I concentrate on keeping the floor swept, dishes washed and cleaning up after our 3 cats.

I forgot about dishes and laundry. Probably 5 or 6 hours each week.

I’m the cook in my house, and my partner does the dishes, so I’m not including that in the time.

Does yard work count too? Mowing the lawn, edging, trimming bushes, etc? How about cooking meals? If I count strictly vacuuming, dusting, dishes, laundry, and cleaning the bathroom it’s probably 4–6. Throw in yard work and it shoots up another 8 hours or so.

@seawulf575 Yes. All included.

It’s hard to say because some of the things I do as the need arises. So I load the dishwasher with my dishes after a meal and wash any pots or pans that I have dirtied. I don’t have a designated day for laundry but I just throw one in when I’m running short of whatever category of clothing. And even on days when I have more time to devote to cleaning, I tend to mix up my chores with reading or doing a craft so that I’m not constantly doing housework for x number of hours. I like my apartment to be orderly, although some days you might not know it to look at it, but I’m also not one of these clean freaks like my sister who tells me that she vacuums everyday.

Are we including cooking and cleaning up afterwards? Laundry?

If you include all of that and all other cleaning I’d say 10–12 hours. If it’s just cleaning like bathrooms, floors, tidying up, then maybe three hours.

Lawn and landscaping is about 1 hour per month for 9 months a year.

A few. A little more when I’m not alone.

Around 20 hours a week after my FT job. My husband is very messy though.
