Im a painter and have used a saw so I guess I am a carpenter. I am available for $8 an hour. I show up late and leave early, sometimes I don't show up at all, but hey I'm only $8 an hour. On the last job I did you should have seen the customers face when I dropped a gallon of paint off my ladder onto their new rugs, I don't have insurance so they are screwed. I have a number of a professional company you can call and fix what I screwed up or can't do.

You get what you pay for in home improvements ............
