Dingy Garages

There is nothing worse than having a garage that needs some serious organizing.

One of my pet peeves is owning a garage that has more than enough stuff in it to fill the house that it is attached to.

Even worse is when you get a house that has a two car gar Continue reading

Work Benches Continued

So there really is an art to this blogging stuff.

When I first got this blog, I really thought I would be on it all the time talking about all the stuff I love but my friend and started a plumbing business near Pittsburgh PA and honestly, that takes a TON of our time.

You would not believe the amount of people that need plumbers! It’s crazy!

I had no idea how much I could actually do in the plumbing industry because I just never tried it before, but when I jumped in toes first, I realized that I could really do a nice job helping people near my home in Mount Lebanon and make money doing it at the same time.

It is really nice although a little weird at times!

You wouldn’t’ believe how crazy some of the houses I go in are!

And the one thing I get a lot of business for?

Running Toilets, Leaky faucets and yes…those really disgusting hairballs.

Hairballs that clog drains are perhaps the most disgusting things on Earth, however, I like them because when someone doesn’t take the time or just doesn’t want to touch their own hair ball that is causing a drain clogging issue, they call me.

And you know what means?

Money Honey!

I mean I can’t even tell you how many hairballs I recently got paid for to remove from drains this past month alone.

I recently watched one of those creepy shows about having bad habits (some sort of new reality tv stuff) and there was this guy who actually removed hairballs in drains for free because he really had some sort of weird fetish with touching hair from other people and knew he could gain access by removing hairballs from their tubs.

I mean…come on man.

That’s literally the most freaked out thing I’ve seen in awhile and it gives people like me, who are trying to make a living as a plumber, really terribly bad wraps.

It’s just so nasty.

What kind of man does that?

My girlfriend tells me it’s because he’s sick….but is that a sickness?

Hair ball molester?

I guess being a molester of hairballs is better than actually being the real deal. You know..the guys (or girls) that you want to beat because they have bigger problems with touching things…and I’m not talking hairballs.

Damn! That makes me so mad!


So…my new interested with workbenches?

I need to find a work bench that works in my van.  One that is small enough to fit in my big dodge van but still leaves room for my tools and other things that you need as a plumber.

I’m excited to start this journey looking for the perfect tool bench for my plumbing truck. (van)

So..maybe I’ll pay a little more attention to this blog now because I need somewhere where I can research these benches and keep track of the ones I’ve already looked at.

I hate having notes all over the place and then losing them so this blog is (hopefully) going to be something that helps me organize my research on work benches and maybe it will help you too!


Till next time!

Work BenchHOME!

HI!  My name is Caleb!  I love working with hands and tools and I hope to pass on some of my handyman skills off to someone soon.

In my short life (as an old 29 year old), I have learned to do a lot of DIY projects for my home.  I’ve worked hard to make my home the way it is.

I’ve learned to finish my basement, hanging drywall, plumbing, electricity and many other things.  My wife even learned, on her own, to side our house and that’s pretty amazing.  She says it’s like putting Legos on a house.  Funny stuff…she’s like 5’4″ but I totally didnt’ mind the bikini the drew in neighborhood glances as she pounded nails into the awning of our little abode.   IT looks freakin’ awesome and she loved doing it.

So..this is my blog!  I’m decided it’s time to share my knowledge (our knowledge) so that we can learn a little more while doing it.

This coming year one of our goals is to build a shed in our own backyard.  Crazy…I know.  But we love building and we take pride in saying:” I did that!”

So here we go!  I’ll start by talking about lots of different tools and how much I love or hate them.   Sometimes you just have to vent or share…yah know?

I don’t have a lot of time today..so bear with me as I build a super awesome website!


More to come……
