Handyman ~ 42 years

You can call Garvin a very Handy Man or Mr. Fix it. Garvin is able to look at the problem and find a solution to solve the problem. He has many skills. If he can't fix it or build it, he will tell you.

We bought this single wide trailer and turned into a Community Kitchen and donated it to Hebraic Roots Aviv Fellowship dot ORG. It features a 10ft butcher block counter top, stove, ice machine, refrigerator and freezer among other things. I love the flooring, vent hood and the large farm house sink that replaced the small 2 compartment sink. 

We opted for a French open storage area and pantry. I am going to sew curtains with plastic over them for easy cleaning to cover the storage areas and still have easy access to them.

Shiflet House Bee Removal

Bee Removal ~ 4 years

We try our best to save the bees because they are so important for everything living to staying alive on this planet. We inspect the situation, assess what needs to be done to remove the bees. We communicate with the home owner about the situation. the homeowner is encouraged to view the removal from their vehicle or in person if they have a bee suit. We remove the hive, honey and bees the best we can. Robber bees come and clean up in which afterwards the homeowner would call a repair person in repair any damage done by the bees and the removal. Repair Work is NOT INCLUDED in the Bee Removal Estimate. We remove the bees and clean up the best we can for the situation. Honey is a messy situation. You never want to exterminate a bee hive in the walls of your home! Dead bees from an extermination will run you out of the house due to the awful smell.
