The German Handyman did a great job with two projects. 1st, he was able to fix one lamp in a set of spiral cascading pendant lights, where a bulb had burned into the lamp's socket. This was tricky, because not only was the socket shot, it had melted onto the lamp's glass. He was able to save the glass by delicately chiseling the melted part. Also, because he was concerned that the bulb should hang at just the right height (remaining inside the lamp), he did a time-consuming search for just the right replacement socket and found it (this was an old fixture)! Yea! Next, we told him of a trellis system we saw in Europe and that we needed two very tall trellises attached to a wall. Well, using much creativity, and being resourceful in use of materials, he designed trellises that look fantastic and installed these for a great effect at half the cost of a "designer" trellis. We were impressed by his critical thinking, his creativity, his hard work and his cheerful and lovely manner. We found his rate to be reasonable (especially for the time he invested) and it was true to his quote. We recommend him for anything! ..., with his smarts, he can do anything. We understand tiling is a particular specialty of his, and we intend to call him back for this, once we're ready to begin this kind of project. A Five-Star job!
