For over 30 years I have been involved in all aspects of the building trades from carpentry to excavation as well as providing garden and farm help for residential applications or larger installations like market gardens and permaculture. My services include carpentry, woodworking, furniture building and repair, light electrical, plumbing, property maintenance, field mowing, large rototilling for market gardens and organic farming. I also offer consulting services to help you sort out priorities for repairs and changes to your property. If you have an older home or building sometimes there are many problems associated with the building or grounds and it can be difficult to sort out just where to start. I can help you set priorities and budgets and identify areas of concern that need to be addressed immediately for safety or security purposes.
In addition to carpentry and home repair I offer my customers information services that go well beyond phone calls and regular mail.
If you have a second home or property, manage property for others from a distance or have to be away from your own place for long periods of time but still need work done when you're not there, my unique skill set derived from having an online internet business for ten years selling organic gardening products can keep you fully informed and you can feel confident that the work is proceeding in an orderly and timely manner.
When you first contact me by phone or email we will discuss the type and scope of the work you need done. We will set up a time for me to go an view the site. You don't have to be there. If there are tenants or informed family members I'll ask for their contact information or makes rue you contact them to make sure they know I'm coming and aren't surpassed by some one they don;t know poking around with a tape measure and a camera! I will visit the property and take pictures, measure the work concerned and take notes as you might expect. At that time I will create a customized, unsearchable page on my web site just for your project and post all the images with notes on that page for you to review. These pictures will be of the work you requested but also usually, things I've discovered that I think need attention that maybe you didn't know were issues needing your attention. The pictures will be in a slide show gallery you can view anytime after I send you the link to your page. Once the work commences I will take works in progress photos akin special notes of anything unusual or special going on you need to know about. Every time pictures are posted i will contact you by email to let you know they are up and then you can call or write with any questions or helpful insights you may have. Once the work is completed your page can remain up for up to 90 days or longer if there's more work to do and you intend to remain a long term customer with more projects going forward. If a single project is going to be done in stages over a period of months or years having the page up for the term of the project helps a great deal. The age is specifically designed not be be searchable by search engines Only we will have the link to it and you are free to share it with anyone you choose.
I use this same procedure for projects like furniture repair and restoration or new wood working items I may build for you. in the shop. You can finance your work using PayPal Credit which offers you no interest and no payments for six months if you pay in full within six months or pay with a credit card using PayPal.
