I'm looking for a laborer person...
« on: July 21, 2006, 08:19:39 PM »
...to help me with a variety of house issues.  First and foremost is installing an irrigation system.  Yes, this job is landscaping (as in, yes, digging).  I'd pay a good hourly ($15-20), flexible hours, and if it goes well, I've got other jobs.   I'm remodeling my house and I am having trouble doing all the work solo.  Other projects are both skilled and unskilled: demolition, framing, door hanging, painting, cabinet installation, concrete countertop fabrication and install, plumbing, electrical... I could go on.

If this is something that interests you or a friend, give me a call.

Thanks guys.

My dad is an interior carpenter and some of the things like hanging doors and cabinet installation are right up his alley.  Let me know if you're interested and I can pass on his info.  I can't really give you an idea about his prices because they vary depending on the job.

What type of hours are we talking here and where in town are you needing the help? I have about 5 years general contracting experience, however, I do have a day job as well. If the schedule is right, I would be wiling to help out.

Feel free to e-mail me or IM if you want to discuss.

For the landscaping (ditch digging)... you suppling the shovels?  I could be down depending on where in town you are and what hours you are looking for.

I'm pretty good with manual labor.  And as far as other stuff, I'm generally handy with house stuff.. plus I love doing it.

Sorry, but I am trying to accomplish most of that at my place too.  

when I have been in a pinch I have always found good contractors from:

TurboDub:  I'm sorry I have the wrong parts.  But, there are two really cute female blondes that live with me, and they are constantly walking around the house almost completely naked. .  .   Unfortunately (or fortunately), they are golden retrievers.

As for hours, I work out of a home office quite a bit, and I'd prefer to do some of this work during weekdays.  Weekends are for camping and biking.

Spicoli:  Yes, I've got basic tools for landscaping.  I'd like to hand dig the trenches if the digging goes well (that is, somewhat easily).  If not, I'd rent a trencher and deal with the subsequent mess.  The lawn is incredibly small, maybe 500 - 1000 square feet.

Service Magic:  I could try this.  I'm sure it's a good service.  But, I'm really looking for a personal recommendation for a specific person.

My current boss started helped found Service Magic and then left a while back. It is a great way to find reliable contractors. Unfortunatly my current schedule doesn't alow me the time to help. Hope something works out.

(edit) It's possible I am mistaken about my boss being involved, however, the company is still a great resource. (edit)
