Second time that Nelson has helped us around the apartment. He did an incredible job hanging some west elm floating shelves and anchoring them so we could store our very heavy books! Also hung a hub mirror, installed some hardware, and hung some art - all in a few hours. He is really cheerful and knows what he is doing - would absolutely recommend.

Carlos was fantastic! Hired him to hang a mirror and a painting and he ended up doing that AND changing out an old light fixture in my bathroom with a new one in just under an hour. Knocked out two birds with one stone. Will definitely hire again in the future! Thank you Carlos!
