Hello friends and other interested parties,
Welcome to Handy Gal Painting Service. My name is Holly Kidder, the owner and grand poobah of Handy Gal, Inc. We are a business of three employees, and we also team up with other paint businesses for large projects, all of whom have their lead training certificates (including myself). We find cooperation to be more advantageous than competition. At Handy Gal, we do interior and exterior painting, faux painting and murals, plaster and drywall repair, and wood stripping and refinishing.
I first began house painting in the summer of 1986, and have been painting and doing minor carpentry and home repairs on and off ever since. I started Handy Gal in 2002, and decided to focus on painting in 2007. Now we have expanded again to include carpentry and renovation services with Hap, a union trained, ship-building-school-trained carpenter and general contractor. He has over 25 years of experience running job sites and working with older homes, and is knowledgeable about solar energy, green roofs, and green building materials.
I plan to use this blog to post ongoing projects, such as the plaster and paint project we are currently working on. Photos and commentary to follow. Thanks for your interest in Handy Gal!
