home maintenance tips for handy moms

Moss Building & Design has launched a new series of workshops for moms’ groups in Northern Virginia who are ready to tackle some of the home maintenance jobs (honey-do lists) around the house and just need someone to show them how. Moss offers the full spectrum of home improvement services from a fully built-out home addition or basement remodel to a maintenance or one-time issue serviced by Moss Home Services. With the HandyMOM 101℠ program, Moss hopes to cover some of the smaller items on homeowners’ “honey-do” lists by empowering women to tackle those items themselves. Each HandyMOM 101℠ workshop will include a presentation by a Moss pro, followed by a hands-on station where attendees will get to try their skills under Moss’s watchful eye. For 2014, the workshop options are:

  • Hang It – how to hang heavy things so they are level and will stay put
  • Hands-on Station – install a drywall anchor
  • Patch It – how to make large and small drywall patches that won’t show
  • Hands-on Station – patch a small hole in drywall
  • Caulk It – everything you ever wanted to know about why, when, where, how to caulk
  • Hands-on station – apply caulk between two tiles
  • Tile It – how to plan and lay tile, cutting if needed, and grout to finish
  • Hands-on stations – laying tile, cutting tile
  • Fix a Leak – simple steps to stop a dripping faucet
  • Hands-on station – replace washer in faucet
