The friendly tool experts at Direct Tools Factory Outlet guide customers through a vast inventory of new, reconditioned, and factory-blemished hardware from brands such as Ryobi, Homelite, and Milwaukee. Reduced-rate items equip customers with enough hardware to construct a tree house inside a doghouse. A Dirt Devil Scorpion hand vacuum ($29.99) helps tidy up workshops and sushi-restaurant kitchens that are coated in sawdust, and a factory-blemished Ryobi One+ lithium-ion compact drill ($127.99) obtains full charge within 45 minutes. Each product, including reconditioned items, carries a warranty of up to one year.
Cobblestone Shoe Hospital's expert menders have repaired men's and women's shoes and boots since 1906. Old, comfortable footwear gains renewed life at the shop with replaced heels and soles, saving patrons from outfitting old pumps with cardboard-box bottoms. Additionally, the cobblers skillfully repair luggage, handbags, belts, and briefcases with services ranging from zipper replacement to full dyeing and reconditioning.
The Build the HYP gala raises money to support Austin Habitat for Humanity, coaxing contributors with tunes from a headlining swing-rock-ska hybrid act. The gala includes snacks to fill bellies famished from swing dancing and starting a sawdust-only diet to show solidarity with in-process homes. The Daddies' set will be supplemented by local act Vintage 15, a 15-piece band that updates jazz jams from staple artists such as Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr., and Michael Bublé. Attendees can also be on the lookout for Raise the Roof shingle prizes, which include scaffolding exhausted roof-raising arms.

The bonded and insured staffers at Integrated Environmental Inc. consider their responsibility to be two-fold: provide professional handyman services and protect the environment. At homes throughout the Austin metro area, they educate customers about—and help execute—important environmental measures, such as maintaining retention ponds, creating firebreaks in vegetation, and halting soil erosion in its tracks.
The certified technicians also provide a range of commercial and home-improvement services for homeowners associations, property management firms, multi-family complexes, and commercial and residential properties. They specialize in installing irrigation systems to facilitate water conservancy, and they tackle projects ranging from fence repair to oiling squeaky suits of armor.
