Win a $500 handy break for your dad
FATHERS are great for helping with handy jobs around the house – but some get a little more involved than others.
Local father Noel Bothwell has taken the role of handy dad and made it his own.
With decades of construction and building experience under his belt, Mr Bothwell was only too happy to help when it came time for his children to buy their own homes.
When his daughter, Kate, bought a 1970s-built duplex that needed a bit of work, Mr Bothwell spent many hours after work and on weekends building a new kitchen and new bathrooms.
When it came to his son building a house, Mr Bothwell compacted the sand on the lot so the foundation could be laid. He also helped with a lot of the finishing touches such as painting and laying garden walls.
“I’ve always been pretty handy, my father was handy, too,” he said.
But Mr Bothwell refuses to take all the credit, saying all family members helped with the work that needed to be done.
“As a group you can do more than you can as a single person,” he said.
