Fearless Home Fix-It Workshop THIS SATURDAY

By September 27, 2013


FixItHouse (1)

An Urban Living reader wrote in letting us know about a home fix-it workshop this Saturday that she loved when she took it, “I took this workshop last year and it was perfect. Demystifies many basic concepts that somehow I never picked up.” We talked to the organizer and there is still room if you’re interested!

This fun, hands-on workshop will equip you with a better understanding of how your home works, the confidence to repair many common problems, and the skills to tackle a multitude of projects. Absolutely no experience necessary!
Three experienced, patient tradespeople – a union electrician, a general contractor, and a retired union carpenter – have teamed up to teach this one-of-a-kind workshop. Participants will be working in small groups with plenty of individual attention and practice that will leave you ready to release your inner handy-worker on your own projects and repairs.

The workshop will focus on three main areas:

  • Take the Power
    • Basic electricity, basic safety
    • Change a wall outlet
    • Troubleshoot and fix a lamp or light fixture
  • Plumbing 101
    • Unclog a stopped-up drain
    • How a toilet works and how to fix it
    • Repair a dripping faucet
  • Up Against the Wall
    • Fix and patch cracks, dings and holes in walls
    • Hanging and attaching how-to for any type of wall

Saturday, Sept. 28, 11am – 3pm

$40 fee includes coffee, tea and bagels.
All the tools and materials needed will be provided.
