I run a few Craigslist ads to get work, where Gina found me. She had quite the list for what she wanted done, and had to narrow it all down to what was most important. But my 1st job was for her sister who needed an exterior blind hung, some curtains hung, and a large painting.
My 1st job for Gina was a fireplace surround using white shiplap (see in pics), that I did in September, 2020. But her foremost project was to replace the countertops, and she would be painting her laminate cabinets. Gina was taken aback with the prices she got from Lowes and Home Depot: they wanted upwards of $3000 for Formica countertops. I supplied them for $500 (see in pics) plus laminate cost.
I also did her subway-style tile backsplash, hung a few lights, replaced a fan, some drywall repair, and framed a mirror wall.
