Seattle Handy (Wo)man Service


A few weeks ago at the Phinney Neighborhood Home Fair, we met Amy, of “AmyWorks“. Amy is a licensed contractor in Seattle and she and her crew offer a variety of home maintenance/repair services – bathroom & kitchen remodels, painting, decks, tiling, and on and on.

Two services Amy offers we thought were extra helpful:

  • She will fix something AND teach you how to fix something.
  • She offers workshops on a variety of topics. Amy said that if you have a group of 5 or so, she would lead a workshop in any topic you choose. Cool!

So much to learn, so little time.

  1. What a great idea. Too bad I don’t live in Seattle. I’d be rounding up friends right and left. Amy sounds talent and very generous with her skills and knowledge. We need more people like her.

  2. We need an Amy in Edmonton. What a cool business model. It’s awesome she’s generous to share her expertise and empower others to do a job she’d normally get paid to do. I think that’s the most fantastic thing I’ve heard in a while. BRAVO Amy!

      • Oh boy, well there’s the use of power tools like a miter saw and router. I’ve seen cute cupboards on Pinterest made from Salvaged doors and windows and what not blended together. Or making and installing Crown Mouldings. I always think that looks nice and probably would be a handy skill. Once I knew that trick, I’d also buy cheapo Ikea bookshelf and crown it on top. No need to start from scratch all the time, just shuz up things….you guys could teach courses yourself!! hey?
