Until your in that tight spot or attic at 100 degrees out and your asking yourself why you do this. Been there.

Lmao I was just in the attic last week and was laying flat in 20 inches of blown insulation. The difference was I knew I had to do it to get the job done and I increased my estimate to make it worth wile.. God I love being my own boss..

Ps.. Attic work still sucks though.

The tools themselves are justifying tool purchases.

What a cycle.

I think it looks beauitiful, but because this is the internet, and I'm an asshole, I gotta be picky about one thing.

...I don't dig the "handyman and low voltage" It comes off like your selling chinese food and truck tires. I would have gone with something a little more generic like "Construction & Communications" or just "general contracting"

Hey thanks for the constructive criticism. Yeah we will see how it goes. I have had a few people say that they don't even know what "low Voltage" means.. Though a few have come up to me and asked if I could do other jobs because they assume I'm an electrician.

I can always remove and replace that line if I want to. Just stickers after all.

I've had that my entire life. Never know whether to say electrical work just so I can evade a list of stupid questions I've answered a thousand times.

How about "Handyman Specializing In Low Voltage Services"?
