I notice that Handymen get a lot of stick on DFUK, so I’d like to own up and say I’m a handyman!! I’m ready for the stick I’m about to get on this post 🙋♂️
As a handyman, I can do lots of other things and have many different skills (without blowing my own trumpet too much). For example, I worked as an electricians’ mate for a number of years after leaving my job as a painter and decorator. So, the skills I have include being able to do minor electrical alterations, putting up TV’s etc etc.
I even laid a patio last week and have extended my skills into plumbing within the last few years too.
So, my point is this; Who else can say they have other skills? I’m interested to know if there are many other multi trades on the group?
I carry out all aspects of decorating too by the way. Everything from wallpapering to airless spraying. I have all the kit, including dust free sanders and a van full of different brushes. No one can say that I’m not a skilled decorator. I can hold my own with the best of you.
Also, I have a question. Apparently, any handyman can do painting, right? But can any painter do handyman stuff? I think that makes the handyman more skilled than any painter 😉
I don’t understand why handymen get so much stick, because it’s completely unjust.
I’ve attached some pictures of my work to show I’m not a dosser.
Ready for the stick I’m going to get 😂. I thought this might be interesting to discuss
