Description
When you're a homeowner, there's always something to fix. If it's not a leaky faucet or a squeaky step, it's stucco that falls off the ceiling every time someone slams the door or a washing machine that works only when it feels like it. And Brian Harris -- a mostly retired, self-proclaimed jack-of-all-trades with a penchant for money-saving schemes -- knows exactly what it's like to hit a few snags when tackling a project. Try as he might, simple chores invariably become costly comedies of errors. In The Cheap Handyman, Brian anthologizes his hard-won wisdom, teaching us how (not) to cut down a tree, what to do if a stray cat has kittens in your HVAC system, three very incorrect uses for duct tape, the manifold hazards of pool maintenance, why not to change your oil over a brick driveway, and more. His wryly straightforward voice paints a picture of everyday life that is as relatable as it is hilarious. If you (or someone you love) has ever thought "Sure, I can do that!" this book is for you."-- back cover
