Do-it-yourself remodelling can result in family rooms turning into walk-in closets and walk-in closets turning into regular closets. Unless you want closets, leave it to the pros with today's Groupon: for $29, you get two hours of home repair or handyman services from Queen Street Carpentry (a $120 value). Today's Groupon does not cover the cost of building materials.
Queen Street Carpentry's crew restores and customizes dwellings under the direction of full-service general contractor Jake Elstone, whose extensive experience includes gut-rehabbing his own heritage home, which is more than 150 years old. With today's deal, a lead carpenter (a $40 value/hour) shares a pair of three-legged pants with a junior carpenter (a $20 value/hour) to perform carpentry renovations ranging from hanging doors to affixing crown moulding. Environ experts can refresh kitchens by adding custom touches to cabinetry and installing new countertops or can transform bathrooms by laying ornate tile work. To enliven outdoor spaces, Queen Street's crew can lay a walkway of pavers or can enhance decks with enclosures that lend privacy for intimate dinners or constructing top-secret time machines.
