Handyman –

  • Scotty Oveson 775-297-5616 “We had Scotty here for the last two days. His work was excellent and we would recommend him highly to anyone who needs help with minor or major work. He is knowledgeable, clever and thorough and left our house cleaner than when he arrived. At one point, I found him vacuuming the living room because his repairs caused some minor dust.

His co-worker Victor is great, too. They come to you, listen to what you want/need, come measure the window dimensions and deliver and install for a very reasonable price. Humongous selection available in several price ranges!”

Massage Therapy –

  • Valerie Lemon 775-813-0763 “I have been getting great massages from Valerie for many years now! At first she’ll explore what kind of pressure works the best for what ails you.
