I know that this is downright bald self interest, but does anyone have a good handyman/carpenter that they can recommend? I was referred to J&J Trading Post, which is a full service hardware store on Glendale and Temple, but their handyman’s quote for putting in a couple of wood floor thresholds and fixing a closet ceiling seemed pretty high. I’d like to compare oranges, and given the somewhat unreliable nature of contractor types I’d prefer a personal recommendation. And the first person that tells me how easy it is and that I should just do it myself gets my virtual foot in their virtual ass.
On the flip side, if you’re near 213 and you’d like to support a locally owned business instead of the hardware death star known as Home Depot, the people at J&J were really nice. They’re at 354 N. Glendale in a bright yellow building. Phone is 213.250.9961.
