Picture this: its winter and you are alone at home with no family or friends living nearby you. You just started getting ready to take a nice long warm bath. You go to the bathroom to turn the water heater on but then you discover something. To your dismay, your water heater has completely stopped working! What do you do? You don’t know anyone who can help you. Who do you call then? That’s right. You call a handyman. You can always rely on a handyman to help. So basically, local handyman in Poulsbo is what you call someone who repairs and makes household items, such as a plumber, an electrician, a mechanic, a carpenter, a technician, and so on.
History of handymen:
The title of the ‘first handymen’ can be given to the peddlers, dating back to the 13th Century, specifically 1225. In the United States, they gained popularity in 1843 when the word ‘handyman’ was finally coined.
Peddlers were people who would travel and go door to door, in search of people to sell their wares to. Often times, when they were in dire need of money and nobody wanted to buy anything, they would offer up their services, to do odd jobs around the house in exchange for a small payment to sustain them. Peddlers usually had a wide range of expertise on such areas, which is why they came to be known as ‘handymen’ – someone skilled, reliable and useful around the house.
The lives of handymen may seem different now. Of course, they do not travel from door to door and offer up their services. However, not much has changed in the way they are treated and seen by the general public.
It is a fact that handymen are extremely skilled individuals with an expansive skillset. They desperately need to be respected far more than they are and given credit for the work (which can often be dangerous!) that they do. With hard work and dedication, you can build a thriving handyman business and take pride in assisting others with their home repair needs.
