Trust HandyMike with all of your projects — large and small.


HandyMike has been doing carpentry for over 40 years. His first job (besides being a paperboy) was an apprentice to a cabinet maker. He went through two years of formal technical school to become an apprentice carpenter. His military and police career lead him away from full-time carpentry, but he has had his fingers in wood, electrical, and plumbing, since 1978. After retiring and growing the company, he has only hired skilled carpenters and building maintenance technicians to work in his customers’ homes. 


HandyMike is a professional, that says what he means and means what he says. He can be counted on. He will return your calls, show up when he says he will, and perform the work with no shortcuts. Life does throws us curves, and when it does Mike will notify you and work respectfully to schedule, repair or build, whatever glitch comes up.


HandyMike is worthy of your trust. He is moral and ethical, this is one of his character traits that led him into a 27 year career in law-enforcement. Not only can Mike and his men be trusted in your house and with your belongings, but he accepts a fiduciary responsibility with his clients, to not waste time and money and to use both time and materials wisely; he will treat your project as if you were family.

HandyMike loves to remodel homes, especially basements. We can do it all from designing the layout, building the bathrooms, including adding the ejector pump, installing egress windows, running the electric, everything from studs to painting, we can remodel your space perfectly!

Light Painting

HandyMike is not a painting company… but we do paint as part of whatever project we do, and we will paint a room here or there, or the spots you can’t get to. If you need your whole house painted we can recommend several painters for you to pick from.


HandyMike will build your full blown addition. Whether it is a simple room, or several, whether it is a kitchen, a dining room, or a Master Bedroom Suite, we can do it exactly as you want it. In fact, in the city this is a great idea for our older and smaller homes.


HandyMike loves these! Is your kitchen too small? Dining room too tight? Do you wish you had 3-6 foot extra in one room? A micro addition is like a bump out that expands a room a tad, and often that does wonders to make a lot more room.

Power Washing

HandyMike will power wash your deck, your house, your sidewalk, your furniture or whatever needs washing! We have the right chemicals—the ones that respect your plants.

Wet Basement / Grading

HandyMike has learned that 99% of the water getting in a basement is either grading at the foundation or downspout drains overflowing?leaking near the foundation. We can access and repair either situation hopefully saving you ten of thousands of dollars in foundation work.

Tile Work

HandyMike installs and repairs tile! We cab reaffix or replace broken tiles, tile showers and tubs, floors or walls, especially kitchen backsplashes. We give you the straight scoop so if the job is too complex or large we can recommend a great tile company!
