My Handyman

My husband Carlos is rolling his eyes at me again when I said I wanted to write to HGTV so they can send me the handsome handyman Carter Oosterhouse to finish up his projects. This guy is hot and he has a new show called 'Carter Can'. Do check his show out.

Actually I should not complaint too much because Carlos can be really handy if he wants too :) He paint, he repairs, he built, he fixed leaks and he even came to my rescue when I see worms eating my tomato plants. As for me I am never handy with anything not even changing a light bulb. When I was living on my own I will just give a call to my brother office and he will send a guy over to fix everything.

Just look is these windows. These is the windows that attract me to this house when we first walk in. Then after moving in for a week I found out that the windows create a lot of heat and is not good at all during the day. We can't even sit at our living room to watch TV so finally we decided to cover it up with blinds. We have to rent a 20 foot ladder from Home Depot just to fix it. It served us well for over a year and just look at it now. It need fixing again :( :(

He made this little table for Diana's apartment.
Sweetie, we have to go to your "Toy Store' Home Depot this weekend to buy some new blinds and rent a ladder again. By the way, when can I have my new bed??

That is one great looking table, good detailing!

I didn't know that you can rent a ladder from HD. How much do they charge, Gert? David does not believe in renting, semua mesti beli which I don't always agree. Sigh.

Rita, you can rent anything from ladder to heavy equipment from Home Depot. We need a long ladder for the windows as ours can't reach at all. Ask David to go to HD and check it out :) :)

I think Carlos is more kacak than Carterlah, especially when he do the Argentina Tango dance while holding the hammer on the ladder. Can I borrow him for a day???

I Cook4Fun said...

Cat, thank you. Yeah he is really good if he wants to :) :) and the only problem with him is he is too 'yim chim' that is why he take so long to do something.

Envy, you also like Carter. He is handsomeee.

Choy, ha haaaa... you think he is more kacak than Carter. How lah to do Argentinian Tango on a ladder. Jatuhlah. Want to borrow him..can can :) :)

Hi Gert,

I am ebian from MyB.net
We have the same problem as yours in our living room. After using the Gila film (available in Lowes or Home depot), it cut down the heat coming into our living room. Check it out at www.gilafilms.com. A cheaper alternative than replacing all the windows. For your tall windows, you might need to hire the "Diet-Coke" guy to install the film ;)

PJ, memang susah nak cuci the windows. Need tangga yang tinggi and I am scare of heights so Carlos kena buat :)

ebien, thanks for stopping by. Actually the blinds is not too expensive. We just replaced all of them this morning.

Amelia, Carter very handsome hor :)

Beachover, you also like Carter. Yeah you can rent the tall ladder from HomeDepot. No point buying it as you will use it only once a while and is not cheap. We rent for 4 hours and it cost us around $20.00. Not bad at all.

aiyah nonya said...

Ha, ha .. Just like my H. He can fix most things if he wants to do it. Otherwie nothing can move him !

The white table is very nicely made. Thunbs up for your hubby .

I Cook4Fun said...

Nonya, thanks. Men sometimes need to be push hor :) :)

That is a superb table for Diana. Like Cath said, it looks better than the one sell at the store. Maybe Carlos is thinking of special bed for you. With lots of extra feature built in. Like built in Tv, radio, heat, wave, canopy etc...That is why he is taking more time to finish.

I Cook4Fun said...

Zue, mana lah ada..just some alteration to the bed saja :):) Kasihan dia jugak. Kena kerja, kena pergi night classes and buat homework mana ada masa. Weekend need to rest :):)
