FixerFixer.com was my first blog site. It was Blogger based, and tough to learn. What I was talking about was how a home owner can do work on their own property, with help. You don’t need an expensive contractor adding ridiculous mark ups on casual labor, or materials.
Well, a HVAC mechanic in Boston took exception to what I was writing. At first he made highly technical comments about what the home owner needed to know about zone heating, or cooling, and home heating, or cooling audits. His suggestion is that a home owner needed his expertise.
I pointed out that a home owner can get, and pay for a home energy audit for between $300 to $800, and work from that. That just put him over the edge. From that point forward anything I wrote got a comment from this guy. Multiple comments, and then spam started coming in. I couldn’t keep up so I had to close the site.
Geez, that was in 2003, I think, it may have been a little sooner.
The next incarnation of FixerFixer was in 2005 on another platform that was expensive, and went nowhere, until I found WordPress. The site has been up a couple of times, and taken down, because of the learning challenges that I have.
Now most of the content is here, in one place with today being the last upload.
Take a look, share some stories, and I’ll spend a little more time with this site.
