Who is Home Repair Tutor
Hi everyone, I’m Jeff Patterson-a dad and husband from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers) who spends my not so spare time doing home renovations. Over the last 10 years I’ve conducted some pretty cool home repair projects on my own house and the rental houses we own. I’ve done plenty of work to be classified as a seasoned DIYer and a true geek when it comes to this stuff.
By reading Home Repair Tutor you’ll discover how to avoid costly mistakes and learn new home remodeling techniques. Your house’s value will improve and you’ll be less frustrated with surprise repairs. Plus, all my projects can be done over the weekend.
If you’re a Facebook fan please feel free to Like the HRT page. I post quick and funny tips as well as interesting links on home remodeling there. So don’t miss out
10 years ago my wife and I were anticipating the birth of our daughter. We were fortunate to find an affordable house that was in good shape. We learned how to do different projects over time like installing hardwood floors, vanities, shower doors, lights, fans, etc.
With the birth of our second daughter and my wife staying home full time to care for our children I decided to take on more DIY projects to save money. I’m sure this sounds like a familiar story for many people.
At this same time, don’t ask me why, we purchased our first rental property. Since then, we’ve acquired several rentals and learned quite a bit about home repair projects after having trouble finding qualified contractors to do small to moderate projects.
Our goal was to use these rental properties as a means of saving for retirement. Things have gone well, although we’ve had our share of bumps in the road.
So Why the Home Repair Tutor Online Magazine
I really enjoy working on houses because the process gives me artistic freedom to create something not only functional but beautiful. This in turns creates value in the home and thus improves the community. Many of the houses I’ve revamped have been eyesores to say the least!
I’ve learned that I like home repair projects and find myself talking to family, friends, and neighbors about questions they have in regard to similar projects I’ve done. With this blog I want to share my tips on saving time and money when doing home repairs.
Most people I know don’t have time to waste and prefer to save money rather than flush it down the toilet. I’m not trying to show off my humble handyman skills-there are tons of talented trades people who can put me to shame. I hope that my experiences, both good and bad, can help you with what sometimes seems like overwhelming home repair projects.
