I found a handyman that doesn't charge an arm and a leg for his work. It's very hard to find a handyman that will work with me as my budget allows. Most want to do everything at once instead of in small sections. All done at once means lots of money but in sections means smaller amounts to come up with in my budget. It only took me several years to find him. This is what he did today. The corner of the house before.

He ran out of wood so he'll be back another day to do more repairs. His truck is in the shop which meant he couldn't go to the hardware store. He walked here from his house. My house looks like it's ready for a coat of paint doesn't it? Well he's going to do that for me too but in the spring when the weather is getting warmer not colder like now. When he comes back in a few days he'll be working on other places on the outside that are rotting away. What he is doing is closing up any outside areas that might let rain get into the walls which would cause even more damage.
It almost feels like Christmas. Hmm.... he sorta looks like Santa. Almost white hair and beard but he's quite thin. Having the repairs done looks so much better..... even without the paint. 100% better!
