Recently updated list of services below.


Hello everyone.  Thank you for visiting my website.  

While you're here....did you know my wife and I are the owners of 

Cruise Holidays and Travel of NW Austin

This is a full service travel agency that not only plans cruise vacations...

but the agency also plans complete European River Cruise trips as well as other trips with a boutique approach to service and custom itineraries.  

To explore the websites or to inquire about an incredible vacation experience, 

Visit our link: Luxury Travel    

Or visit this link: Cruise Holidays of Northwest Austin

That said, let's move on to why you came to this website.  

Notes about my services:

I have typically stopped fence post replacement or furniture moving, etc.  Room sized flooring jobs and repairs are becoming too physical for me now that I'm older.

Service Area: 

I have posted a map on Yelp and on this website to indicate my approximate service area to help you decide whether to call me.  If you need a very small job, and you are at the very edge of the map....It may not make good business sense to take that job, don't be offended.
