The Best Way to Decorate is By Taking a Design Audit of Your Whole Home | Apartment Therapy

“We spent a few hours going through each and every space and making a detailed, itemized list of what we wanted to change. Everything from a new silverware organizer to a bigger couch to fixing a scratch on the wall got listed, room by room. When we finished the entire audit, we were left with dozens and dozens of to-do items, but none of the tasks felt like the jumbled, overwhelming mess that existed in my brain before. Instead, it felt like a game plan—something actionable and concrete that we could make progress on slowly but surely. Instead of feeling rushed to make a room feel perfect, I felt like we had a plan. Sure, it would take a while to get through all of it, but for the first time, I was looking at a physical list of everything we wanted to get done. And at least I knew that if we went item by item, we’d get through it.”

“… the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) hosts Postcommodity’s newest piece, The Point of Final Collapse, an audio installation based on Millennium Tower’s gradual sinking and leaning, which will aurally simulate the movements of the skyscraper using data collected between 2008 and 2017.”

Stay Safe, Everyone!

While we endeavor to honor the city’s “shelter-in-place” orders, we understand that some jobs just can’t wait. In that spirit, we’re keeping the the workshop open to service your homes, offices and retail/restaurant spaces.

More importantly than anything else, we’re washing our hands a heck-of-a-lot more than we used to, and we’re used to washing our hands more often than anyone outside the culinary or medical fields.

We also value the importance of communication at a time like this, and we’re placing an even higher premium on talking to customers in order to understand their priorities, their concerns, their schedules, and their budgets. Whether we end up working for someone during the “shelter-in-place” order or just making scheduling arrangements for a time when things get back to normal, we are eager to listen to your needs and respond with a variety of options to meet them.

Please stay healthy San Francisco. Please wash your hands and stay at home until we’re through this thing.

Jury Duty – Week of June 24th

No appointments available this week – June 24-28 – due to a Jury Duty.

We’ll reply to service requests as they arrive, but we’ll be backlogged by a full week as a result of the summons.

Please feel free to send us your service requests and project descriptions, and we will let you know how quickly we can get you onto the schedule.

Gone Skiing!

Hi, Folks! It’s been one of the snowiest winters in memory, and none of us have been up to the mountains yet this season, therefore the workshop is closed until April 22nd – so we can go make some tracks before it all melts!

New Site Coming Soon!

I’m growing bored with the appearance of our current website — please let us know if you have suggestions for how to improve upon our presence online!

Bike Racks! Wall Mirrors! Pendant Lighting! *Things We Did Today!

Great day of work down in Mission Bay this morning — hanging wall objects in pristine sheetrock on metal studs in the land of awkwardly mis-matched condo towers. We kid, but that really is a bizarre neighborhood.

We’re currently open for business and booking new customer appointments, but there’s a bit of a wait for a time slot — nothing severe, but if you’re in search of same- or next-day-help, unfortunately we can’t accommodate you.

That said, please don’t hesitate to contact us and see how far out in advance we need to book your appointment, either via the Contact Us page or just Ask a Handyman!.
