Re: Need DIY help or a spare pair of hands?

Just got to let you all know how brilliant Papa Goose is and what excellent ideas he comes up with.

He's really helped me make the playgroup much more professional looking and brightened it up no end. All that on a shoe string budget.

So don't worry cos the Goose is here.

I second the recommendation. Papa Goose was really helpful in putting up a light, and a pleasure to deal with!

Re: Need DIY help or a spare pair of hands?

thanks pappa goose for putting together all my baby furniture - well worth saving my (non-handy) husband's weekend. efficiently put together and looks great!

and thanks also for putting that huge mirror up on the wall - great to have someone who clearly knows what they are doing!

Re: Need DIY help or a spare pair of hands?

hey PG, can we talk? I was hoping you could help me with some ideas for my hallway - my closets are full of backpacking gear and I was thinking of hanging some of it up to save space. What do you think?

p.s. I still love the green - bet you didn't think I would!

Re: Need DIY help or a spare pair of hands?

Papa Goose, I have a quick question.

Are you able to make a piece of a chair? in wood?

I have one piece and I need the exact copy of it...

If you can do those kind of thing, I'll send you a pic.

Re: Need DIY help or a spare pair of hands?

Hi,
We are moving into a new apartment in Thalwil and could potentially use some help. The moving company will move the major items on Monday but my husband is going to move the kitchen stuff and clothes on this Saturday. He could use some help carrying the boxes from the garage into the apartment (there is a large elevator) and also assemble some IKEA shelves, 2 small/medium wardrobes and 2 dressers (for our babies). Would you be interested to help? Please let us know how much you charge and if you'd be free this Saturday afternoon.
Thank you.
Amy

Hi there. We need some help with bringing a double door fridge up from the basement to the kitchen. We also need a single bed to be removed. Can you help? Sincere thanks.
