About Us

Furniture & Equipment assembly: Indoor, Outdoor. & Hanging I am new to HOUZZ, so I do not have many reviews here. I have reviews on other platforms, that you can jump to from my website. 219+ on Thumbtack, 80+ on Angie's List, 30+ on ProReferral, 100+ on my Google Business Profile. We bring; tools, experience and spare parts to the job. We work with all major brands of RTA (Ready To Assemble) furniture; IKEA, Sauder, South Shore, West Elm, Bush, etc. We install the IKEA PAX, SEKTION, and BESTA lines. Installation of various garage & closet storage systems like Closet Maid, Martha Stewart, EZ Racks, etc. Saunas, Exercise machines, quilting machines, etc. We also install Wall-beds, a.k.a. Murphy-beds. Outdoor projects such as; Swing sets, Storage Sheds, Pergolas, Solariums, Patio furniture, BBQ's. We do not repair high value antiques. But, we often can get dysfunctional low-end particle board furniture back to functional. We also do minor repairs to Kitchen & Bathroom cabinet doors and drawers, and we occasionally tweak the bi-fold closet doors (you know, the ones everyone hates). This is a courtesy service to clients who hire us for assembly or hanging jobs. Hanging: (stuff, not people, ok?) Pictures, Heavy Mirrors, Wall Sculptures, Wine Racks, Flatscreens, Wall-mount storage systems. We travel with assorted hooks, D-rings, 100 LB wire, 1,500 LB aircraft-grade cable. We use the Frog Brand Yellow (delicate) painters tape to make our marks. We use Stabila brand levels. No charge for small hooks, or re-wiring the backs of old pictures with frayed or damaged wires. We have heavy duty drywall anchors for placement of objects [mirrors, flatscreen TV's, etc. ] on a wall where a stud can not be found. Please check out my YouTube video: We often work with clients who have just moved in. Most moving companies will not hang artwork. Many times, furniture taken apart for the move is not properly re-assembled. We can usually fix that.

We do not do an hourly rate. All jobs are by the "project". For assembly jobs, please provide the brand name and model number. This will usually allow me to download a manual, review it and come up with a price that I can stand by. It is not our practice to lowball bid, and then ask for more money after starting. Picture hanging is a half day minimum, some exceptions. We do ask for parking reimbursement, or a guest sticker for daytime restricted zoned neighborhoods, on ALL jobs.
