Has done work for me and an elderly lady across the street for a long while. Wears all the hats and reasonably priced.
[Via the DSMRC Email Group] We had Jim replace some rotten window sills for us last fall and we were so impressed with his attention to detail, we decided to ask him to bid our main bathroom. His bid was very reasonable — about the same as what we were charged to renovate our much smaller half bathroom a few months ago.
[Via the DSMRC Email Group] We are having Glen Peterson do work for us. He does excellent work and is very reasonable. He generally charges $250 for an 8 hour day, no matter what the job is. The only problem is he lives in Perry, which is about 40 miles NW of Des Moines, and he does not always have time to make it to Des Moines.
