I just wish it wasn't so hard to find those people. I would be happy to pay someone else to do some of my chores if I could just be sure that they could do a better job at it than I would.I'm starting to think that's pretty much impossible, with anything... Can you really make an income if you spend the time to do things with the amount of care you'd use on your own car? People will undercut you on price left and right. I'd think not, but I had an electrician out here last summer to set up a mini-split AC unit and he charged me $800 just for the wiring. I had heard he was one of the best from the guy who did the actual unit installation. When the electrician first came out to give me an estimate, he took an hour or so just explaining to me exactly what was code, and what he needed to do. We got into talking about VWs (he saw mine in the yard) and he started telling me about old electrical stuff that he has in his "home museum." He worked in Manhattan a lot and he said some of the electrical systems he replaced were original from the early days of wired electricity.
Sort of makes you think, eh?
