A couple of years ago I decided that a good way to maximise the value of our house was to create a more open plan feel to the living areas. Our kitchen is quite a dark room, but it backs on to our light and airy, but under used dining room. Being absolutely sure that the wall between the two rooms wasn’t structural, I could see no reason why we shouldn’t knock through, or at least create a walkway between kitchen and dining room. It would mean a greater feeling of space, and some more natural light in the kitchen.
Make a fair deposit. Customers always ask me about deposits. Deposits can range from 25%25 of the job up to 50%25. It just depends on the job. Don’t think that the Handyman wants to finance your job, because they DON’T! If the proposal is well-written with payment terms, it’s very standard practice. My rule is anything over 0 is worthy of 50%25 down (unless it’s a bigger job with payment milestones). I’ve been burned before when I first started and learned my lesson quickly!
So are you good at guitar? Do you have another skill that you could video and sell to people wanting to learn it? Are you a tradesman, say a ceramic tiler. You could make a video of a tiling job from measuring to mixing and spreading the glue to laying and cutting the tiles to mixing and spreading the grout. If you wanted to get technical you could make a series of videos from bathrooms to kitchens to special cuts to the different glues, grouts etc needed for different areas etc.
You may be thinking that this is a concept you agree with, but you don’t need any more overhead expenses to deal with.

It’s very expensive to manufacture solar grade silicon needing large and specific industrial plants. Maybe you’re questioning the cost if it just sand. The money is added when you try to clean sand. Sand is very impure silicon. Not to mention that to produce it is only done 3 ways.
