We are genuinely committed to providing great service and meeting and helping new folks with their various projects. We try our best to be friendly, adaptable, fun and clever. We enjoy working on projects in homes and business around the beautiful Bay Area. We have learned so much practical and theoretical knowledge doing this work, and we are committed to increasing that knowledge. Give us a challenge and we bring our years of experience to doing your job in cost effective, efficient manner. If it is something new to us, we will let you know, then if you chose to move forward we will research and figure out how best to get the job best completed. As far as equipment, we own a 2005 Toyota Tundra Pickup Truck. Full size bed, with a full back seat area in the cab. If you need a bigger truck for your move or project then please let us know. We will be happy to help you rent a big truck - and we can drive it with confidence.

Some of our special talents include home electronics, smart technology systems, fine art hanging (we worked for SFMoMA), interior design & practical aesthetic advice, woodworking (we have our own outfitted shop), restoration with attention to historical detail, holiday lighting and decor instillation of all types, irrigation systems, indoor lighting, outdoor lighting and, lastly - providing brute muscle necessary for heavy lifting & moving jobs.

Shane & Craig are friendly and had already studied the task list I had sent. They did some of the easiest jobs and then visited a hardware store to pick up supplies. They put together multiple loung spots for the two cats and the dog. They fell in love with the pets and were very careful to keep them in the house! They will be returning to finish the list when our schedules allow it. Talented and versatile; professional and friendly!

Local Moving (under 50 miles)

It was really a pleasure working with Shane & Craig! They were flexible with timing when my truck guy was late. If moving can be fun... I highly recommend them!

We hired them for our wedding. We needed someone to pickup all of our decor and leftover food/drinks and bring it back to our house. They did everything we asked, showed up on time, and even took the extra step of trying to "decorate" the house with the flowers. Thank you!!

I can’t recommend these two enough, very kind, courteous and great attention to detail. They have a can-do attitude and think through everything carefully before taking action which I appreciate. A great asset to have when you need some help.

Home Theater System Installation or Replacement

Shane and Craig were great to work with! Communicated about arrival time as well as they bill for work. Very pleased with the hanging of our TV and installation of some Light fixtures. I will ask them to do more work in the future.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We usually charge 40-50 per man per hour. We often have the two of us come together for gigs - we can get twice as much done (or more!) in the same amount of time.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1) Write a response and loose bid based on the available info. 2) Discuss schedule and specifics if they respond. 3) Adjust bid, if necessary. Communicate with client. 4) Do research on the project and gather any required materials and/or tools. 5) Arrive at worksite on schedule. 6) Preform task as outlined. Communicate and unforeseen issues that may affect cost or schedule, then get client approval, before they impact our progress. 7) Finish the job to client satisfaction. 8) Invoice client and collect payment. We always like cash, but will accept PayPal, Venmo and Square (this includes Visa, MasterCard and Amex. 9) Be responsive to any followup or required maintenance needed, per client feedback, on the given project.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    We started out as free-lance workers in production, set design and grip and electrical in Bay Area filmmaking. I also recently got my MFA degree in the graduate program at SFAI in sculpture and technology. My partner has been a building/tech/DYI hobbyist since his early teens.
