No, I'm looking for a handyman with basic knowledge and abilities in most trades. I listed one or two jobs that I need doing. The significant majority is decorating and finishing, which is why this is in the painting and decorating section.

OI you lot why so unfriendly ???

"Some" Handymen (or Women) are more than capable of producing a decent decorating finish


@ OP, If I were near you I'd be happy to quote. Sadly I don't know anyone in your area who could help.

I don't think anyones having a dig at handymen mate, but "basic skills" says to me that the OP has a lower expectation of a handyman, which he probably extends to price too.

I agree fitzy. Plus it's the whole house,not just a room(not saying a handyman ain't capable)
It does sound as if he wants it done "on the cheap"

Well if your a handyman with basic skills I'm sure you'd be delighted at this opportunity and quite possibly a cost effective option for the home owner.

I am, but my bid last night for the job was rejected by the mods. I think I was too cheap.

Oh dear, mine too. And mine was with sympathy for the HO. Guess they read it differently. At least I've had my cherry popped now.

This post reminds me of a few conversations I've had with customers when I've been really busy.

"You could do with a cheap labourer to strip wallpaper, do prep and emulsion" . . . Like none of these require any level of skill.

Just keep em away from the glossing and it'll be fine eh?
