Re: How handy around the house are you?
I do all right. Maybe not quite #1 but close to it. I won't build an addition onto the house but I can do most everything else. I do it myself mostly because I'm cheap.
I've done my share of ripping out old bathrooms and redoing them, laying ceramic floor tiles, new cabinets and counters, wiring rooms (I leave working at the breaker box to pros though), light fixtures/switches/outlets, basic plumbing (know the difference between copper and PVC), painting/wallpapering/"wall effects", hang drywall (have learned to hire out the finishing, I can do it but they are lot better at it), basic concrete (worked for a concrete company in college), wield my chainsaw with a flourish, new flowerbeds, put in a pond with a waterfall, etc etc.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
