Well, the idea of all this actually this came around when I was trying to choose some stuff for my house (it was a leather recliner). So the information was so spread and reading tons and tons of reviews and comparison and testimonials for different models was really a challenge for making any decision. Bring it all into one simple way was quite a joy. Hope you guys will take advantage of all this and really save some time.
We live in a world where furniture and house keeping technologies replace each other so rapidly that no one could run as fast after as they do replace each other. So don’t judge hard.
Began as basic maintenance worker. In 6 months I turned job into Remodeling job. Complete remodel of apartments one by one. Originally kitchen remodels then changed again to bath remodels. Replacing cabinets. Modifying plumbing and electrical service. Job morphed further into old window replacement. I was responsible for the largest share of the maintenance budget. I designed cabinet layout and picked the materials. Peformed weekly inventory and planned orders and deliveriess based on budget concerns and known time schedules for suppliers.
I have had managerial experience in my 20s. My objective was to reinvent myself as a craftsman but always gravitated toward managing. I intentionally took varied temporary jobs doing everything from working for Service Master in the Hyvee store in Marion. Along the way I always strived to make the experience for me and my co-workers more productive. I changed the job at The Little Shop from just furniture repair adding Lighting Design and Repair to the Services Offered. The maintenance job I turned into the remodeling of kitchens, bathrooms, and window replacement.
