Introduction: Former engineer, focused on inexpensive solutions. Omaha-based, English-born and educated, artistic and logical thinker. I’m able to apply a very evenly analytical and creative mind to a project, to bring ideas, detail, and love for the work to many different disciplines. I get excited by overcoming challenges. And I want you to love the space you’re in! Consequently, I have often been asked to prepare a home by fixing 20 or so issues at once, or simply hang arrangements of art, apply railings, put up trim, mount TVs, and straighten doors ... These are a very few examples of the hundreds of projects I have the pleasure of working on. [*Covid-19 Update* Fully vaccinated, I am taking precautions and am able to continue to assist you with your home projects, in whatever capacity we find mutually effective.] Top Pro 2018 and 2020.

Ryan R.

Handyman

Simon responded quickly and came 100% prepared to tackle the jobs. We our listing our house soon and needed a handful of different things repaired/touched up. Simon moved through a variety of small projects with great attention to detail and quality including repairing drywall, re-texturing and painting the ceiling and walls, caulked counters and stairway and repaired a can light all in one visit. He even noticed some things I missed and took care of them for me. He was willing to help with a variety of small jobs which is not always easy to find in a handyman/contractor. Also just a genuinely kind and enjoyable person to work with. I highly recommend him and will use him exclusively for any home repairs in the future.

I felt so trusted and empowered to help, to be effective, to give your home the shine that it needs for the imminent listing. I believe that you both may take a large portion of the credit for the great results!

Not only did he do a fabulous job, he was a pleasure to meet. Now I have a new go to handyman, AND a new friend!

You made it a very enjoyable environment in which to work and focus most effectively on your TV hanging project, Jerry. And now I’m more educated on the value of the Container Store!

We had Simon install our Nest Hello door bell and Nest thermostat. He installed both with no issues with the actually units or installation. The chime was not work so Simon troubleshooted and realized that our transformer wasn’t working. He changed that out for us. Unfortunately, our chime itself was found to be not in working condition so I had order a new one which I plan on having him install also. Thank you again Simon for all your amazing work.

FAQs

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

    The minimum Charge is $100. If more than 1.25 hours I charge per hour, unless we agree on a flat fee. If transit is an hour or more roundtrip I ask for a $50 supplement. Thank you for your understanding!

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

    It's no different than repeat business, and with just as much gratitude for your trust and confidence in my abilities in my eyes and handshake!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was a design engineer for 20 years, and have that analytical mindset. I'm also a creative and you can use me as an idea generator! Further, I've had 7 properties over 20 years and 3 rentals, and have almost all the tools one would ever need. (smile.) Other than carpet, concrete, and roofing, I've done all the work myself.
