Excellent job of installing tile _ would highly recommend Steve for any job
Steve, It is so beautiful. We were shocked at how good it looks
Beautiful job-very professional-Steve is wonderful. I would recommend your company to my friends.
Steve has done a beautiful job on our floors. We didn't even imagine them to look as good as they do. We are very pleased with his work We would refer him to anyone needing flooring. Also Steve is very honest and sincere, and gave us the advise we needed.
A Prized Possession
Taking great care in what's truly important
This stained glass piece was the last thing my customers husband made before he passed away and it meant a great deal to this sweet lady. It was safely tucked under her bed for years and wanted it displayed so she could enjoy it. I nervously took great care to secure it in the window so the sunlight would shine through it and fill the room with memories

Make it Beautiful or a Little Quirky
This pool deck area had not been maintained for about 15 years. It took a lot of pressure washing, a lot of lumber needed to be replaced, I rebuilt the benches, and applied deck paint
It's now a great place to just hang out
This Was Fun
Rock and Woodwork
Here we have a very old brick and block home that I have literally transformed over the years. You will see this home in other pictures on my website, if you look for the heavy wood door casings, rock work and stone pillars. This couple are writers and artists who became dear friends of mine. Notice the before picture of this area in the photo below.
We discussed in detail the exact look we were going after before any work began
This shows what the area looked like before the work began.
It's all about the prep work
Have you ever seen a house that still looked just as crumby as before they painted it, and the only real difference is that it's a different color?
Before Painting Fascia
Paint on fascia just doesn't hold up as well as it does on the walls, and much of the time it needs attention before the rest of the house.
So often the prep work is the difference between a nice professional job that will last, and the job you get when you try to save too much money
Saving you money
This home here is an eventual total remodel. Like so many of my customers the project will be completed as they can afford it. This is very common, and l welcome this sort of thing, so don't think you'll never have a beautiful home again. I will work WITH you, and help with suggestions on how to get the most for your money, even if it's at my own expense. I feel that making you happy and saving you money pays off for us both in the long run
This Area Really Needs A New Look
This area was claustrophobic, and very outdated, and what you can't see are the noisy squeeks that were in the floor
Now That's A Lot Better
We have new floors, doors and paint, and the wall has been replaced by a useful divider with cubbies and lights on both sides. The squeaks are gone and It even has a secret hiding place inside
Heavy Timber Casing Really Adds A Great Look
This is the same home you saw previously with all the rock work. Notice how it makes the grandfather clock just pop
Erosion Repair on an Access Road
On this project, he water ran like a river down the road, and needed to be diverted at the top in order to keep from having to repair it after every heavy rain.
This saved my customer a ton of money in the long run
You might say I just stopped a steady flow of income by making a permanent repair on this road, but referrals and happy customers are much more important
Tree Trimming Should Be An Art
It takes some imagination to showcase the beauty behind that mess of overgroth
This kind of project takes some time, and creates quite a burn pile, but it's well worth it
Quite A Difference
This area is the first thing you see when entering the ranch, and just gives it a much more inviting look
Custom Block, Rock, And Paver Project
From cactus patch to great BBQ area
This was a very overgrown cactus patch before getting my tractor after it
I had a lot of fun doing this project. I first had to remove the enormous cactus before adding a concrete slab, a block wall to accommadate the rock installation, custom pavers, and a paver cap on the rock wall
It's now a Great BBQ area
My customer was so excited she couldn't see straight. I wish I had a picture of it all cleaned up
8 Foot Thistles
This was by far the worst overgrowth I've seen in Center Point
This Project was for a local realtor to help sell the property
This cost less than you might think
New Floor, Paint, And Shelf conversion
Old Ranch House
This was a window looking into a laundry room
I boarded up the window and installed shelves in it's place
A fresh new look for the room
I also installed a new laminate floor, new screens for the windows, and gave the room a fresh coat of paint
The Woman Cave
For the woman cave, I installed new windows, drywall, and a new stained deck with a metal roof
As the Project came along
Inside I put up drywall and a ton of trim work
The old porch was a couple of old pallets
Now she has a new deck and roof, and new dual pane windows
It's just me and Ernie and he stays home now, so let's not get to carried away on the big lifting unless you want to help
I'm the guy on the right

A Great Choice
At Hill Country Handyman & Tractor, I believe in exceptional workmanship and top-quality service. That is why I guarantee to measure up to your expectations. I will sit and meet with you to understand your needs, from the simplest fixes to more complex projects. I will determine if I can offer a fixed price or billing based on time and materials. In most cases the customer will benefit from paying time and materials, as no professional wants to loose money on a project, although it happens and I try my best to make it fair for both of us, a lot of projects are just to difficult to calculate, so the professional will make sure not to loose money by calculating the project on the idea of worst case scenario, asking himself what's the worst thing that could happen? , or what's the longest this project might take?, and the price will be based on that. So, looking at it from that perspective, it's usually cheaper by the hour, and don't be fooled by the real cheap guy either as they could be there twice as long and cost you money in a multitude of ways

I've been in the service industry for well over 30 years.
Hello all, my name is Steve and the furry one is my long time buddy Ernie. I live in Bandera Texas now, but for most of my career I lived in the city. In a career as long as mine, my background story is just too long to tell in one page so I'll try to stay with the nuts and bolts. I started my career installing floors with my dad during summer breaks when I was just a boy. When I became old enough for people to take me serious as an installer, I went to work for a large corporation that soon invited me to obtain my contractors license so I could come to work directly for the owners of the company. I just had a knack for fixing things and quickly became known as the guy who could fix just about anything they threw at me. Quite often another contractor or his helpers would install a floor and wouldn't be able to fix their mistakes, so before it was ordered to be replaced they would send me to repair it, saving the company and the contractors a serious amount of money. I continued with this type of work for many years and with other large corporations also. I've always loved driving tractors since I was a kid and with my knack for repairing things I started branching out into handyman and tractor work quite a few years ago now and haven't looked back.
