Wish List Wally
Makes extensive lists of home improvement projects
but never actually gets around to doing any of them. Wally is a
dreamer who would like to make his home a better place to live but may
lack the know-how and tools to make it happen.
Pauly has big plans for projects all around
the house. At times he starts several projects but when he isn't sure
of the next step the procrastination creeps in and he doesn't finish
the job. Anyone who has ever done a home improvement project
understands the way Pauly feels.
Bob ripped out his kitchen cabinets
before he figured out what the next step should be. Then he bought
truckload of lumber to build a deck but doesn't have the first clue
what to do with it.
Has lots of time on his hands to take on new
projects but isn't necessarily interested in building the biggest and
the best. Over the years, he had a respectable workshop but is
probably downsizing now as an empty nester.
Carl the Craft Man
On a Saturday, this guy takes apart his
lawnmower for fun. Carl is also known as "Mr. Ambitious", he loves to
fix anything around the house and is confident enough to take on most
any home improvement project.
Gary loves tools, needs a fully equipped workshop and
is always looking for the biggest, best, latest and coolest tool on
the market. While Gadget Gary has every tool under the sun, he
doesn't necessarily know how to use each tool to its full potential.
Family Man Frank
The Family Man knows new additions to the family
means constant changes and updates to the home. He is always using
his tools for assembling new toys, building furniture and closet
organizers, and installing shelves.
His place is his castle but it is small and doesn't
need major renovations. He is interested in making what he has look
its best, even if it is just for a year or two. Joe builds shelves,
hangs pictures, assembles simple furniture etc.
