Who's the handy man of your house?

When we buy build it yourself furniture, I build it. If Dh tries, he always breaks something or does something wrong and gets upset, then I finish it. When something breaks, I generally fix it.. unless it's computer related, then it's all up to him :)

How about your house?

  • We both are.....but I know he feels like it should be his job because he's the "man", so I let him have his fun and sometimes just do things when he's gone.

  • Both. We're both handy with fixing things. We don't buy the pressed wood furniture so we never have to worry about putting it togehter and we can both fix leaky pipes, etc. The only thing I really don't like doing is electric but I will if I need to. I just shut off the power to the entire house. I don't trust myself to have the right circut breaker turned off. To this I owe a big THANK YOU MR DEVOLD! He was my Vo Ag teacher in HIgh School and taught me alot about fixing things.

  • This is easy M-E! I have the tools, if something breaks I fix it.. Dh would just rather throw everything away and buy a new one than fix the old "broken" one. drives me nuts!

  • Both really.. When he's away working I take care of the vehicles, house,yard. With the vehicles I put on my bluetooth and he talks me through it, and with the house I can usually figure it out. When hubby's home he takes care of everything except the yard, and I help him out with the rest. Unless of course he's welding, etc... I stay away from that.

  • LOL it is definitely not my husband either. I can put a few things together and am handy with a few tools, but most handy work we hire someone to do or my dad helps us out.

  • We both do although when it comes to some of the more difficult things he just will do them.
