If its made of wood, plywood, MDF or chipboard and it needs trimmed, cut, shaved, fixed, hung, screwed, glued or renewed, I can do that.


If water is coming out and it shouldn’t be, if water isn’t coming out when it should be, if where the water comes out is old, ugly, stiff or rusty then I can sort that.


If its dark and the switch doesn’t work, the socket is broken or the wrong colour, the bulb went pop, I can change that.


If it needs to be protected, rejuvenated, filled, sanded, primed or is simply the wrong colour I have brushes and rollers.

Tiling & Plastering

If its bumpy and needs to be smooth. If the tiles have cracked you up, I can make it nice again.

If your DIY skills have gone on permanent vacation or the toolbox has long since rusted shut and you need a hand give me a shout.

About me


My name is Dez and I can take care of all those jobs that just won’t go away. No task too small. If you can’t do it and it needs done, I can.


Since 2004 I have had a very successful Bathroom and Kitchen installation business. With a unique skillset of all trades taken care of by myself. This allowed my customers to know exactly who and what they were getting. Building a close relationship helped create trust between myself and my customers.

Many of my customers come back to me and ask about all kinds of tasks they have outstanding and ask if I can do that. So as time marches on and my knees start to complain I am now looking to do less of the big renovations and take care of your smaller tasks that just won’t go away.

As you will imagine the tasks involved in Bathroom and Kitchen installation are extensive. Design, project management, plumbing, Joinery, plastering, tiling, painting, lighting, flooring, woodwork and finishing’s will mean that I should be able to tackle anything you have annoying you.


Based in Glenrothes working throughout Fife and Edinburgh I have a huge collection of wonderful customers who would love to talk about or show off the work I have completed on their behalf.


My workshop allows me to build bespoke pieces of furniture and cabinetry. Also restore or repurpose that old piece of furniture you love so much but has seen better days.


I regard myself as being respectful and friendly so if you have an elderly parent or friend that needs somebody reliable to do the odd job, or perhaps pick up and build some Ikea furniture or other flat pack stuff just give me a shout.



Free Estimates are available. Please feel free to send details of the job/s you require and pictures if that helps.

All major credit/debit cards or bank transfer accepted.



Over the last few years, we have used Dez for various jobs in the house and in the garden. It is great to have someone who can turn their hand to anything and we can honestly say that we have always been really pleased with any work Dez has done. He arrives when he says he will, he talks through the job with you, his workmanship is fantastic and he tidies up at the end of it. He is especially good at a challenge and always find a solution. He is trustworthy and his prices are fair. He drinks a lot of coffee mind you! Seriously, we can't fault him. We will always use him as our go to tradesman for any future jobs in the house or garden.  

J&D Greenlees,


When we needed a handrail on our stairs, we had the mobility people install it for us… they screwed a plank of wood to the wall and the handrail to the wood. It became loose and dangerous after a few days. I told a friend what a bad job they did and she recommended I speak to Dez “He’s a Handy Man to Know” she said with a smile. Dez popped round and had it sorted in no time. He took everything off, found the studs in the wall and not only did he fit a really nice secure handrail, he also filled in all the screw holes left by the other cowboys. He is the friendliest chap you could meet and there’s nothing he can’t do. We’ve since had him round fixing a plumbing issue, repaired a damaged bit of wall, painting and even building us a bespoke wall for our TV to hide all the ugly wires. We would highly recommend Dez to anyone. He really is THE Handyman to Know!                   

Clive and Georgina,


As a landlord of a few student properties in Cupar and St. Andrews, Dez has taken care of the majority of the property maintenance. Especially during change over of tenants. Fresh paint, fixing of doors etc, new lighting, refresh grouting and replace mouldy sealant bringing the place up to scratch before new students arrive.                                

  F. Wilson,


My Parents are in there 80’s and have been taken advantage of by so called Tradespeople. Dez was working for us changing a radiator and a kitchen tap. We chatted about my parents situation and he said he would look after anything they needed. He has fixed handles, leaks, fitted grab rails in the hall and shower area, painted, re-sealed, built furniture from Ikea and also made them some book ends and picture frames for there 60th wedding Anniversary. They love having him around and they always have a good laugh. Dez says my mum makes the best Lemon drizzle cake. He is a good guy to have in your phone book.                                         

Elaine Brand,


If you need a job done Dez is the person to call. He has been our “go to” person for all sorts of household issues. He has fixed every tap, changed pipes, replaced showers, extractor fans and toilet seats. He has even laid carpet tiles and painted walls for me. He is a top guy and can usually work his way out of any problems he finds.                   

Mrs Stockley,
