Phil Vandermeer helps homeowners and other DIYers with insight on various projects by sharing what he's learned over the years in the handyman and home improvement fields through blog posts, videos and other various publications he has produced since 2010.

Phil was founder and owner of Northeastern Home And Business, and then Thousand Hills Properties, two separate handyman businesses he operated from 2005 until 2014 in New Jersey and Texas.

Throughout the posts on this blog, Phil helps people increase their knowledge of tools and techniques, as well as project planning and implementation. Our goal is to help people increase efficiency and productivity in both every day and out of the ordinary projects. 

The focus here is on what works. What saves money and time, and gets to the reason you're here in the first place: How to get it done. Right.
