Welcome to Class Act Home Improvement! My witty, beautiful and business savvy daughter introduced me to the world of blogging in hopes that this might become a vehicle to share details and photos of my projects to a broader internet audience. Perhaps for a little marketing too.

What we do:

Class Act is a handyman & home improvement/renovation business.

Why we do it?

Well, let’s break it down:

™The 27 years in IT industry and corporate world were sucking the life out of me.
™Love to work with my hands
™Already had tools
Had experience doing this type of work for my own home
™Desire to work for/with people
™Love variety
Home Improvement and being handy has always been a hobby and an interest, but I never dreamed it would be my career. However, I’ve always had an uncanny attraction to hardware stores and I drool for tools. Tool Time was my favorite show. And I always had an insatiable desire to answer the question:  “I wonder how they did that?”
So….I started a business doing what I love. And I haven’t looked back since!
I look forward to sharing some of my projects with you and with any luck, our paths will cross one day when you get the desire to improve something, build something, fix something or just have that same question…”I wonder how they did that?”
