A Handyman, That Remodels?

If you are thinking of remodeling your bathroom, kitchen or even your
closets, instead of hiring a new contractor, talk to your local
handyman. Generally, these people have other skills and backgrounds in
crafts like plumbing, carpentry and welding. They create the all-purpose
handyperson position for themselves because it is easy to find work
when you appeal to a large audience.

If you are considering renovating your bathroom, an odd jobs guy may be
the perfect person for the job. Especially ideal for someone that
doesn?t want to go through the trouble of interviewing and hiring new
contractors. Ask your friend that does the occasional small jobs
projects around your home to see if they would be comfortable taking on
your bathroom project.

You may find that they have extensive plumbing skills and even have
their construction license. Because they are able to get more work as an
odd job doer, they let the contracting work go. Since this person knows
your home and your style, they could easily help remodel your bathroom.
Refitting the plumbing, setting you up with new fixtures, a shower or
bath and new cabinets won?t be a problem for someone with basic
woodcraft and plumbing skills.

Asking if they would be willing to take on your bathroom may get you
thinking about the other projects that you have been putting off in your
home. Once you realize that your handyman has more skills then just
fixing the toilet or putting up cabinets, your horizon will be expanded.
Ask them if they would be interested in taking on building that new
pantry for the kitchen or creating a hutch for the dining room.

If your odd jobs person is comfortable remodeling the bathroom, they may
be willing to help remodel your kitchen. This is definitely a bigger
job than the bathroom, but for the right person it isn?t impossible.
Talk to your handyperson about whether they would feel comfortable with a
larger project and if you were to find helpers if they would take it
on. You may be surprised to find that this isn?t the first time the odd
jobs guy takes on a kitchen renovation.

One of the best ways to utilize the skills of a handyman, though, is by
employing them to remodel your closets. Getting your closets organized
is a great way to clean up your life and give yourself a positive
outlook. Adding shelves or finding inventive ways to use closet space is
a perfect job for your odd jobs person. They already have the skills
and tools; just point them in the right direction.

If you think that the project you have in mind is too big for your
handyman, talk to them to find out. You may be surprised that the person
that you have been employing for simple things like unclogging the sink
or hanging paintings may be able to take on your major renovation
