It happens every weekend: garages, basements, or garden sheds are a handyman’s favourite playground.
There’s a car being fixed, a new piece of furniture being built, an old one being repaired. All week long the handyman looks forward to this project in his “sacred halls”, which are both a workplace and a refuge. The often predominant organisation system is particularly fascinating, a system his peers crave.
Creative chaos is not tolerated here. Instead, tools are in rows on the walls, screws and nails and neatly sorted in boxes, and the most valuable equipment – just like jewellery in chests – is stored in robust and shock-resistant transport boxes.
And if there’s currently no project on the go, they can tidy up, or work on a new organisation system.
