Rent My Handy Husband

Updated: 6 days ago

It’s wonderful to have a spouse who's handy. Every homeowner knows that there's always something that needs to be fixed or replaced. Having a handy spouse makes it a lot easier to get things done while saving the family a whole lot of money.

Laura Young took things a step further and is using her handy husband, James, to make the family more money. She had a brilliant idea after listening to a podcast about a man who makes a living putting together ready-to-assemble furniture. Why not lend her husband out to other people to do odd jobs?


"He's good at everything around the house and garden, so I thought why not put those skills to use and hire him out?" says Laura.


Laura made a Facebook post joking about her husband's incredible skills as a handyman and, surprisingly, people started booking him for jobs. James booked so many gigs that he was able to drop his job working in a warehouse and gain greater flexibility to help Laura raise their three kids, two of which are autistic.


This was the beginning of a new business: Rent My Handy Husband.


James charges £40 ($45) an hour and is available to work in the Midlands, England. The couple gives price breaks to people who work for the National Health Service or who are 65 and older.
