Houseman / Handyman
A Houseman is usually responsible for the heavy housework, such as cleaning the hardwood and marble floors, vacuuming and polishing silver and brass. He may be required to care for the front entry area of the house and the walkways. In a home where there is only a Houseman, he typically does what a Housekeeper would be required to do. A Handyman has full charge of both the outside and inside maintenance of the home. Typical duties include general repairs, painting, gardening, plumbing, carpentry, overseeing workmen and scheduling annual repairs.
