Who does most of the home repairs in your household?

I am finding that I am the handy gal of our family. Who is the handy person in your house?

  • My Dad, honestly. My dad was a phone/electric repair guy for upteen years, he also has grand experience in computers, and learned an uncounted amount of knowledge from his dad/Granddad who were both contractors/builders. They built a few cottages around the Gary, Indiana area. So when it comes to something more then changing a lightbulb we call on him. My husband would like to be, but there's a lot he still has to learn. He knows something things, so if he thinks he can handle it he'll attempt. But generally we give my dad first crack at it.
