Oh heck to the yes! Before my partner came along -- it was a nightmare. He's so, so, so handy! I'm telling you, he can fix anything. I've become incredibly handy too, but shooot! I still can't fix a leaky faucet or give my closet a total makeover with new shelves and all that. Like I said, this guy is handy! I take advantage of that skill. My closet's never been so full of shelves! Lol.
We NEVER have to hire people to do anything around here. We've always been that way though. My grandfather was super handy, so growing up him and my dad done all our housework and stuff. Built a kick-butt new porch all on their own, done our floors, cabinets, etc. And now my partner is super handy, so we're never in need of a pro!
My partner owns rental property and has to take care of it, so he's like a professional in every department. It's beautiful really. Lol. He can do it all.
