Pretty Handy Girl
Hi, I’m Brittany aka Pretty Handy Girl. I like the smell of coffee and sawdust in the morning. I live to break stereotypes and empower you to take on your own DIY project.
I despise stereotypes and am working hard to break down the stereotype that women aren’t handy. This site is for anyone who wishes they were handy and could make their own repairs, upgrades, or become a true do-it-yourselfer.
The “Saving Etta” house was built in 1900 near downtown Raleigh, NC. Despite being listed on the Registry of Historic Places, the house was one step away from being condemned and bulldozed. Not to be deterred, Brittany worked for over a year to save the original house, all while preserving many of the original features. This is a “must see it to believe it” house rehabilitation adventure!
Millie is a 1957 brick ranch house in a quaint neighborhood in Raleigh, NC only minutes from downtown. She had good bones but was in need of some serious remodeling magic. Follow along as Brittany works her magic by adding a second bathroom and bringing back the mid-century modern vibe in this classic one-story ranch.
