Hi, I'm Larry. I was born in San Francisco. I am now retired, previously I was a Carpenter/Contractor for 20 years and then I was a Software Engineer for 20 years. I have three adult children and a grandson.

Help around the house
You will be in the middle of San Francisco and get the chance to see everything this great city has to offer. Art, museums, restaurants, live in and experience this great vibe and culture the city has. I will be able to teach you something about carpentry.
Please tell me your specific qualifications for the task(s) you are interested in helping with.
Home Repair: I am living in the home I grew up in. It is an old building and it has many repairs that are needed. I was a carpenter/contractor many years ago so I know what to do, but I am not able to do all of the work myself. This could include planning, demolition, dry-rot repair, window repair, finish carpentry, hardwood flooring, kitchen and bathroom remodeling.
Landscaping: fencing and landscaping in the yards. Planning and strong physical work.
Financial and Estate Planning: I am looking for experienced help with investment, trust, and will planning.
Organization: I have a lifetime accumulation of stuff that needs to be sorted and cleared out. This person must be able to move objects of reasonable weight (up to 50lbs) and have a lot of patience dealing with someone who will be reluctant and possibly difficult (me).
The building has two flats. I live in the upper flat and currently my son lives in the lower flat. I have two guest bedrooms with double beds for people to use. I also have two single cots.
I am very centrally located. Street parking is available. Two local buses provide good service.
