Introduction: I have been a bridge inspector, a mega yacht engineer, a structural engineer, a theme park attraction project manager, a mechanic and a landscaper. I have been told I am a jack of all trades so I started my own business. I believe in a gentleman’s handshake and am a hard worker. I now work alongside my wife, who owns Happee Helper. Together we help clients who need extra hands. We have amazing references and work hard to obtain those! My rates can vary from $65/hr to $90 per hr, and some rates are project-based. It depends upon the depth of the project and its intricacies. If your project does not fall within the specifications of Thumbtack, that's ok! Let's set up a time to talk about your needs and your expectations. We will work together to find the perfect solution!

Doug replied to my initial request very promptly. I was impressed with how he wanted to execute the project and his pricing is quite fair. I ended up proceeding with Doug to install some security cameras and fix a problematic wall switch receptacle and I'm very happy with all the work he did. I'll happily use Doug for more work around the house in the future!

It's a real challenge to find someone who effortlessly delivers professional and quality work—consistently. Add in a great attitude and excitement to problem solve—that's even tougher to come by. Doug is absolutely the real deal. My family and I are extremely grateful that he is now a steady resource in our lives and we're excited for all the upcoming projects we'll have him on!

Hubbee Helper remodeled my 3-bedroom condo, helping us get ready for our first baby. Douglas replaced our carpet floors with laminate wood flooring, removed the bathroom flooring and put down new tile, replaced the toilet, replaced the bathroom vanity, installed ceiling fans in the bedrooms and kitchen, repaired some holes in the drywall, hung shelves and deep cleaned the whole place. He has all the tools needed to get the job done, and it feels like we have a completely new home. Douglas got all the work done on time and we are happy with his work and feel we got a great value. Highly recommend.

Very grateful for Doug's excellent work ethic & personable manner! His great troubleshooting skills traversed the wiring of this old townhouse to figure out a quirky situation. He also replaced a faulty breaker switch, so all circuits are back ON! It gives me great comfort knowing I now have someone very trustworthy & multi-skilled to call on when the need arises. Gigantic KUDOS to Hubbee Helper & Happee Helper! The Perfect Pairing for solving whatever home challenges one might be facing.
