I am 36 years old and my primary job is as a fairly highly trained maintenance engineer. I am still working full time as a shift worker but looking for a little extra flexible work to fit into my rest days. My academic training involves a Bachelors Degree in engineering and 5 years of college in various subjects across a range of subjects; so basically I am very good with my hands and there's not much I can't build/fix/create. My base trade is electrical/electronics so I am confident on electrical systems and appliances; however I am not 'Part P' registered at this time so cannot sign off works - so basic electrical works only for now (e.g. minor circuit alterations, sockets, lights, repairs etc).
I like to keep physically active so I am more than happy to labouring, garden work, landscaping etc. Even if there is a task that I am not familiar with (e.g. pond making), I am happy to do research and work it out, and reflect my inexperience in the price.
Due to my upbringing of lego and similar construction toys, I am a bit of a fan of flat pack (sad I know). I find it quite theraputic. I can either do flatpack one-off items or a whole job lot - prices would be dependant on hot big an item and discount for multiple items.
As a hobby I make custom items of furniture and similar. I do a lot of work with resins and I enjoy upscaling furniture. I also create custom items for situations where things off-the-shelf might not be a perfect fit.
Like I said before, there's not really much I can't build/fix/create so if you have a task and it's not included in my list then just ask. Typically my prices will be lower than most as I don't rely on this as my primary income; I just enjoy being helpful.
We run a family owned business that can provide electrical and plumbing works as well as landscape requirements. Due to COVID we are struggling to find work so we are currently very competitivly priced
I'm an experienced and hardworking DIY-er who started out DIYing as a hobbie to pass time. It quickly matured into a passion that I became good at over time. I am confident & competent in an extensive range of DIY tasks; from erecting flat-packed furniture to fitting my own kitchen, including plumbing & basic electrics. Other DIY tasks include; building stud walls, fixing door frames & doors, bathroom fitting, external door & window fitting and landscaping (including artificial grass). Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you.
