Introduction
I'm a product development technology professional employed by a Fortune 500 company by day and Do-It-Yourself Handyman / homeowner on the weekend.

Over the past 20 years I’ve owned and extensively remodeled five homes, including:

  • interior and exterior painting
  • building room additions
  • remodeling baths
  • residing – removing Masonite and installing Hardiplank
  • electrical wiring – light switches, receptacles, ceiling fans
  • converting a gas clothes dryer to electric
  • whole-house standby generator
  • plumbing
  • skylights
  • paver brick walkways and patios
  • laying tile and plank wood floors
  • replacing kitchen appliances
  • fixing and replacing water heaters
  • replacing central air conditioning systems
  • installing storm water drainage swales
  • cement work
  • landscaping and yard cleanup
  • framing interior walls
  • hanging sheet rock and drywall finishing
  • installed alarm and video surveillance systems
  • obtaining building permits and inspections
  • and much more

Some jobs you can do yourself. Some jobs require licensed professionals, heavy equipment or are just too big or difficult for a single person. The wise handyman will call in the professionals when necessary, though you can save money and get superior results by being educated, doing some of the prep work yourself and acting as project manager. The best way to learn is to see how other projects are done. I hope you will benefit from the knowledge and experiences I’ve written about at www.handymanhowto.com. You may decide to hire a handyman or licensed professional. If so, you’ll have a better idea of what needs to be done.
