Shed be gone

Spent tonite tearing down the crappy, rusted shed that plagued the side of my house. I’m having Student Painters come tomorrow morning to ‘power wash’ the en...

After having trouble getting the first lockset, rushing the second one, only to find out it was DOA, getting a replacement sent out, I’m happy to say I...

Job Well Done

I’m having my front door replaced this Friday (assuming the sun shows up). This was planned about a month ago, since it’s a custom door. Over two weeks ago w...

Fixit Man
