Work we’ve completed;
7th May 2021:
Busy day today, had three jobs, which is great! Job 1, was repair/ glue a kitchen draw, fix a shower outlet cover, build some shelves and change a few light bulbs.
Job 2, fitted a couple of blinds and fixed a TV to the wall.
Job 3, some Ikea flat pack assembly.
26th April 2021:
Another busy day, nice, job one was to fit a spice rack, hang a mirror and hang some pictures in a hard to access above stairs wall. Unfortunately my photo skills were weak today and messed the ‘after’ photo up.
Just imagine three nice pictures on this wall!
Job 2 of the day was a DIwhY save, the customer had tried to fit the rail themselves, and needed some one to come a fit them properly for them so they were not loose and fall downey. Forgot the after pictures but these were all sorted when I left.
Then finally onto job 3 of the day, fitted a Roman Blind, Hung a bathroom mirror, installed a retractable clothes line, and removed some curtain rails and pelmets.
23rd April 2021:
Lots of jobs for my first call of the day, Mounting a TV bracket, fitting a radiator cover, a nice undercounted draw bin, removal of some shelves, and the hardest kept for last, mounting a bathroom mirror easy enough in itself but had to drill a tiled wall. No cracks yay!.
2nd job of the day was the fitting of 5 roller blinds in a bedroom, fitting a bathroom cabinet and removal of some curtain rails and pelmets.
19th April 2021:
A curtain emergency today, the blackout curtains had fallen down and needed the curtain rail and curtains re-hanging.
16th April 2021:
Fitted a roman blind in a kitchen and completely forgot to take a picture :(.
9th April 2021:
A very busy day, with lots and lots and lots of pictures to hang, and to make it tricky lots were aligned and levelled with other pictures. Lots of measuring and the laser level came out to ensure a perfect finish.
Just when I finished, the customer appolgised and handed me a Ring Door Bell, Gate Bolt and Smoke Alarm to fit too. Never apologise for giving me work, keep it coming!
Moved on to my 2nd customer of the day a little later than anticipated, kept them notified on my change in ETA of course. Fixed a falling down curtain for them, but forgot to take an after shot, doh!
4th April 2021:
Quick and simple job today, building up a table.
31st March 2021:
A busy morning doing all sorts of picture, mirror and ‘stuff’. Quite possibly the hardest handyman job, evenly spaced and aligned pictures, careful measuring and prediction fixing of the hangers.
22nd March 2021:
Fixed a blind and hung a couple of pairs of curtains.
5th March 2021:
Another TV Mount today, the customer had a go themselves, but got the bolts stuck half way in.
4th March 2021:
A very heavy mirror, couple of coach bolts later and that is hung nice and sturdy.
1st March 2021:
A fairly easy one today, a landlord asked me to repair a curtain rail. Removed the light weights fixings and put some heavy duty ones in, that’ll keep it on the wall.
19th February 2021:
Out handymanning today, set up a wi-fi wireless mess system.
And fitted this hefty TV mount, but it can swivel left right and in and out!
8th February 2021:
Started the day with a flat pack build, easy enough but they can be a time consuming faff. In the rush to get to the next job, forgot to take a finished picture despite having a big ‘photo’ sticker on the top of my tool box to remind me, doh!
An artful job next, see what I did there?, hanging and moving pictures around a elderly gentleman’s flat. The one over the door was fairly trick due to the weight and hight, but we got it done.
8th February 2021:
Frost outside, but still out removing and replacing another TV mount.
4th February 2021:
First job was to fix the blinds that the previous handyman failed to install correctly. Customer couldn’t pull the blind fully open, do people not check their work?!
The installed a lovely roman blind and a large bedroom mirror.
3rd February 2021:
A toilet door emergency today, the door fell off and the family wanted their private bathroom moments back! From first call to completed job in less than an hour for this one!
29th January 2021:
TV mount today..
25th January 2021:
Replacing and fitting TV mounts are fairly run of the mill jobs, but this one a bit more tricky as it was on a swivel arm. The bracket needs to extra secure to support the large weight multiplied by the leverage effect. Still, job done and happy clients!
7th January 2021:
Distressed client called me up to mouse proof her home, some sealant and wire wool did the trick. The key with mice though is finding how they get in, and after a little investigation I found this air brick with a big hole in it, classic entry point.
Cold winter days always always leads to draft-roofing jobs, fitting an external draft excluder around this client’s front door.
21th December 2020:
Mounting a customer supplied TV bracket/ mount, this time we were hiding the wires in the stud wall. Not sure what was going on with my camera angles that day!
Third visit to this customer’s house, which is really nice that not only is it plenty of work for me but the customer is so impressed with my work they keep getting me back in.
These client’s clearly love their cats very much with this astonishing catopia they had me install.
The rest of the jobs were a bit more pedestrian, with coat hooks, pictures and light fittings.
18th December 2020:
A very busy day at this customer’s house with lots of varied jobs, and extra nice when it is a return visit as it shows the client is really happy with your work.
Double set of blinds on this window.
Another blind fitter in the guest room.
