What Makes Us Unique

Well... other than being as sweet as honey, what can we say? We pride ourselves on being a small locally recognized handyman business. When your choices are revolving employees at franchises or fly-by-night handymen, we hope to provide you with some relief, and maybe a jar of honey!

If you have a whole bunch of stuff on your to-do list, you found the right place. You will be amazed how good you will feel knowing you don't have to figure it out yourself. And all that time you spent agonizing over how, or who is going to get that stuff done...it just came to an end. How sweet is that?

What Our Customers Say...

"It was great. He showed up on time. We went over what needed to be done and completed the job and does excellent work. He also replaced a piece of wood on the corner of my deck that was broken that I didn't even mention to him. Excellent job."


Angies List ★★★★★

"I’ve tried two other handy-person companies in the Twin Cities with very disappointing results. I am thrilled to have found The Honey Do Handyman! John was able to handle a variety of requests with ease. He is knowledgeable, efficient and quiet. I will definitely use him again!"​

A Handyman's Journey

As a kid I used to take my bike apart all the way down to the last ball-bearing. I laid every part in a line down the sidewalk so I could remember how to put it back together. I Painted it silver and put a banana seat and wheelie bar on it. 

I spent 6 years restoring pre-1964 Porches, Ferraris and Mercedes to Concours standards. I specialized in the engine compartment, suspension and undercarriage, restoring them to factory condition. 

That was followed by 25 years as a photographer. We built kitchens, bedrooms and other sets complete with walls, windows, floors, kitchen countertops, working sinks, and ovens. You can see my work here: Abernathy Photography

I did most of the work on my own houses. I remodeled a bathroom; installed new wood floors, refinished old wood floors; installed a hanging sink and a pedestal sink; repaired broken tiles and re-grouted; re-drywalled ceilings; insulated to warm my freezing basement; installed programmable thermostats; built planter boxes; rebuilt wood steps; refinished doors; patched and painted walls and ceilings; replaced faucets; installed a brick patio and surrounding gardens; installed a cyclone fence; cleaned out 30 years of tar and nicotine from duct-work; power-washed and painted the stucco; stripped and painted outdoor molding; and more...

One day my wife gave me a ‘Honey Do’ list and I thought “Hey, I like this. I think I’ll start a handyman business”. Within a week I had a name, an LLC, a Facebook Page, a website up and my first call for work. With your help I can write the next paragraph.
