About Us


I’m Bob Jackson – a technology product development professional by day and Do-It-Yourself Handyman / homeowner on the weekends.

Bob Jackson

Over the past 25 years I’ve owned and extensively remodeled five homes, including:

Some jobs you can do yourself. Some jobs require licensed professionals, heavy equipment or are just too big or difficult for a single person. The wise handyman will call in the professionals when necessary, though you can save money and get superior results by being educated, doing some of the prep work yourself and acting as project manager. The best way to learn is to see how other projects are done. I hope you will benefit from the knowledge and experiences I’ve written about here at www.HandymanHowTo.com. You may decide to hire a handyman or licensed professional. If so, you’ll have a better idea of what needs to be done through the information provided here.

My Philosophy

What you’re willing to do yourself depends on what you enjoy, available time, dedication and budget. I like doing home improvement and repairs, teaching myself new skills, being in control and don’t mind getting dirty. I look at a project as an excuse to buy more tools (whoo-hoo!).

I do the following when before starting a new project:

It’s not as difficult as you might think. The smaller the job, the less planning required. On the big jobs, study and planning will result in big savings $$$ and add value to your home.

Good luck!
