Hello and let me introduce myself
My name is Dave and I am a local handyman and builder ,Im keeping this blog as a sort of personal diary about my work and life around the Blackpool area,
I’ve been working as a tradesman now for over 10 years and I definitely think that I have found my niche !
We had a quiet time a few years ago when business dropped off due to the recession but things have picked up a lot lately and I have just launched my own online website to help my business grow. You can see it here .
I love my job and enjoy working in the Blackpool area as a handyman /builder there isn’t much that I haven’t tackled in the last 10 years and personally I think that I’m good at my job,I have that sort of ability where I can turn my hand to just about anything whether its making some shelves , fitting new windows or simply putting together some flat pack furniture .
The Blackpool area is quite large but densly populated with a lot of properties and therefore a lot of work for me and my little team , because everywhere is packed in quite close together it makes it easier for me to get from job to job which I like .
There are also a tremendous amount of business premises which again means more work for me to keep on top of and sometimes I get over run with jobs especially from local business owners who need there work completing quickly so that they can get on going about their business.
The week we launched our website was also the local schools prom week and me and the lads had decided to hire a limousine from a local limousine company so that we could go round town from venue to venue without the hassle of taxis or anyone having to drive and not drink . Because our big night clashed with the schools prom we really struggled but eventually we found a local company who could provide us with a limo and the night was awesome . We started out with a meal at a local Italian restaurant and then moved on to Revolution Bar and the Beach House . After that it all got a bit messy and some of the lads went AWOL.
All in all it was a great night and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves !
Back to the job ! This week we are working on a massive old bingo hall that isn’t even in Blackpool, its being turned into flats and our job is to fit all the windows and put up all the new stud walls . Im guessing the owners are going to ask us to do more once we finish this part of the job and it looks like we have work mostly guaranteed for the next 4 to 5 weeks fro what I can tell.
It will be good to get back to the usual rounds in Blackpool once this work is finished but until then at least we have plenty to be going on with. in some ways I prefer being based in one place because I don’t have the hassle of driving around all the time but I reckon that it will get boring before long and I’ll want to get back to the usual rounds that I do in my beloved Blackpool !
Until next time take it easy out there
