I have to hire everything done. It's expensive most times but if it is going to get done, I have to hire it out to be done. There used to be a business in the area called Rent a Husband. I never had occasion to call for repairs etc as things were alright at the time more or less, and who had time anyway? However, they seem to have gone out of business so it's to the local classified ads I go on occasion. So far, no clunkers. I have been fortunate. Also, several folks who do on-going jobs such as pest control try to look out for me and recommend trusted or vetted handymen etc. I employed one of those recommended ones yesterday.
I think I have a winner with this guy, more than usual. He took down the old fall outta the wall towel rack in the bathroom and installed a block of spruce wood with a new brass towel bar on it, to the wall using studs which the former person a few years back, didn't bother to do. No more falling off the wall towel bars. My son while here got the fluorescent light bulbs I needed (again..flickering probs) and took down that cloud of a cover and installed new bulbs and reinstalled that huge cover for me..and did it right. Not crooked one little bit like it was.
But the main reason the guy was here was to caulk around all of the windows. I have new windows yes, but the area around all of them needed caulking on the inside due to the wooden frames that had been created and put up. NINE tubes of caulk for a one tube should have been, job. The person who installed the decorative frames years ago did a bad job.Now, it is air tight. So, that's what I paid for. he's coming back some time this week to do fresh and needed weather stripping around the doors. The current stuff is about dead.
This is the umpteenth day without rain. We are 8 inches below normal if not more whereas last two years we were a foot above normal and more. BUT I got my first tomato picked as I showed on the other blog and FB.
Time to get cracking and get a face on and get out of here. ♥
