My name is Krista Ernst. Back in 1991 I moved from New York to Austin, TX and bought a tiny, little dump of a house on a nice big lot. From my parents I knew just enough about home repair and construction to get myself into trouble but I had an eager attitude and discovered I had a real knack for all things handy.
Over the subsequent 25 plus years I designed and built my addition, plumbed and constructed an outdoor shower, designed and built most of the furniture in my house and transformed my hovel into a lovely, landscaped home and myself into One Handy Mutha.
In business now for over 7 years I find that I enjoy the diversity and complexity of the work I do and the opportunity it affords me to meet a wide variety of interesting people. I enjoy the fact that working for myself has given me the flexibility to be one great Mutha to my two amazing kids- my all time favorite job!
