I am so thankful that I have a handy hubby in Minnesota, but i don’t know how women get by with men that aren’t nice with tools.
My hubby and I rented for two years and our rental was consistently falling to pieces, then at first I tried calling the building owner to get him to fix things, and the guy was horrible at it though… He would never come and wouldn’t take our calls.
My hubby did a lot of fixes on his own. He fixed the outdoor lights that never seemed to work. He stopped the dishwasher from leaking, got to the stove to turn on and fixed our dryer multiple times. The worst was the a/c. Even the building owner mentioned the AC system is a bit tricky. He told us not to call for Minnesota AC repairs though. He said the system got tested and is fine, well it was coated with dust and hair when my nice friend and I moved in. My hubby cleaned the inside of the AC device and changed the air filter. He also found out what the issue was with the cooling system. The house could never get cold enough. My hubby found that the outdoor air compressor was lopsided. The angle meant all the coolant leaned to one end and wasn’t providing cold air. He took brick blocks and righted them. Suddenly my nice friend and I had icy cold a/c. The house was perfectly comfortable. I am so cheerful that he was around to fix that. I would have lived in a boiling house for those two years if not for him.
