W. was our carpenter/project manager, and he did a great job! He took it in stride to lengthen the electrical lines that were too short, and did a great job" installing the cabinets. Since we changed some of the sizes and configurations, the flooring wasn't quite right for the new arrangement.
put plywood under the cabinets to lift them, then installed a front kick on the cabinets to cover up the places the floor didn't meet. He did a great job getting all the lights in, and even figured out a better arrangement for the transformers to save us some money. He also figured out a great way to install shelves under our wall cabinets in a way that allowed them to be floating, instead of having huge brackets, while still supporting at least 8 pounds of weight on the shelf. The only thing he did that I didn't like as well, was not putting a spacer behind the base cabinets to move them out to account for the thickness of the
220 outlet. Since he didn't do the demolition, he may not have realized the old cabinets were that way, and consequently did not install the spacer behind the new ones. The result is our
now sticks out about 3/4" past the front of the cabinets. Not a huge deal, but it is obviously a little off when you see it. We're very pleased with the new vent that allows the hood to blow thing outside, instead of back into the house, and our new lighting is fantastic.
and his helper showed up on time every morning, worked the entire day except for a lunch break, and kept things reasonably clean. The estimate was a little slow making its way to us following the initial site visit, but the company was very responsive when we called to schedule the work, and even agreed to use 2 people for the job to cut the time to one week instead of two. Overall, we were very pleased with
, his helper, and all the work they did for us. We would definitely use them again.

"Excellent work! They arrived as scheduled and, while it took a few hours longer than estimated (due to finding additional water damage and wood rot), they completed the job in a timely" manner. The owner visited and checked on progress throughout the day, and the foreman and workmen that stayed here worked diligently and professionally to complete the work exactly as requested. They were very considerate of not disturbing us or our pets any more than necessary, and kept us informed throughout the project of what they were doing and what would be next. They did a great job; we would definitely use them again!

answered my call right away and went by my house to give me an estimate the same day. The job had to be postponed a few days to wait for clear skies, otherwise" he would have been able to get it done the next day. I don't know how he was able to do such a great job considering the height of my house and the fact there is no level ground for ladders.But he pulled it off.
even added some extra touches just to make sure I was 100% satisfied. I look forward to using him again on my next project, big or small.

OK - terminology issue here. The "shower pan" is a collection liner than underlies the shower floor itself, and is designed (if built and plumbed right) to trap any leakage from the shower floor and route it to the same floor drain pipe. Example image here, copper in this case - 

http://indigochreblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/img_0835.jpg

It sounds like your are saying the shower floor or base unit failed - likely a fiberglass or plastic shower, which commonly fail due to incomplete support under them. This can be repaired if fiberglass, but is not usually done unless just microcracking, as it is hard to find an expert - usually you have to have a car body fiberglass specialist or a surfboard repair expert do it, and the color will not match perfectly unless you get a new gelcoat over the entire base unit. Cost about $300-500, ASSUMING the material can be repaired - true fiberglass can, thermoplastic can sometimes be welded but anyone's guess how long it will last without cracking again, plastics like PVC can rarely be fixed so they will hold someone standing on them. Any sort of repair is likely to crack again, because you have done nothing to remove the cause of the cracking which is standing on a base that is not fully supported over its full extent. Some cheepo or desperate plumbers try injecting non-pressuring type expanding foam underneath to improve the support - this does a great job of supporting it but unfortunately supports mold, so starts stinking in short order as a rule.

The normal fix is to remove and replace it, because once it is out there is no sense in putting a damaged one back in for the small increment in cost. Removing it means taking the shower wall liners or the bottom row or two of tile out so you can get the new base unit into place (because they overlap it), then replacing them. So, the $3000 range indicated is indicative of this type of job, which typically runs from a very low of around $1500-2000 for an identical base unit, to more typically $3-5,000 depending on whether a shower enclosure or tile walls. Of course,when the new one is put in, it is CRITICAL that it be fully supported - this means rubbing plumbers rouge or similar marking substance on the bottom, test fitting it, and then lifting it out and checking that all the stiffener ribs and support pads made contact with the pan, and making adjusments as necessary until it has full contact, then standing in it and rocking back and forth to check for any points not making full contat and fixing them.

The $10,000 plus numbers you got must have been for entire shower replacement down to the joists and studs, and the $30,000 range number would be typical for a full bathroom remodel with new shower or shower/tub and doors and surround, wall finishes, vanity, sink, toilet, and flooring and door.

I am not sure a general handyman is the right person for the skylight.  We fix quite a few skylights that were installed by handymen and that could be the problem at its origination.  You will want a roofer for that.

 

As long as you are splitting the trades at that point, might as well get a flooring contractor to look at the floor once you have figured out the skylight repair/replacement equation.

and his son showed up on time and went straight to work. They did a very good job replacing the back door and frame.

repaired a roof brace that had broken loose and come through the ceiling, then patched the ceiling. They helped us select paint for three rooms. The rooms had not been painted in 40 years, and required three coats of paint. They repaired all the cracks in the plaster. The paint job looks lovely. The colors are perfect. Very pleased with their professional work. We have used
