Having a coffee with friends this morning & our casual conversion turned towards home renovations especially with the labour costs involved in them. My friend was complaining about the quote she got for a bathroom tiling job. She was astounded that the actual cost of material for a tiling job was minimal compared to the labour cost in laying the tiles. This is when I could proudly say how handy my husband is & how much money he has saved us in labour costs. We have save thousands of dollars in labour. My husband is a crash repairer by trade so he’s comfortable in using tools & measuring things up. He’s installed our kitchen, laundry, replastered, retiled, painted, & sanded our floor boards.You name it-he’s done it. Last week he was climbing our trees & lopping them. While my other friends husbands struggle to unpackaged an IKEA flat pack, my hubby’s already put it together with one hand tied behind his back & blindfolded. Obviously anything related to cars he’s also very good at. Not bad for a guy who is semi illiterate & left school in yr 10. So proud of him.
