Backcountry living is an old-fashioned lifestyle. We are neighborly, pay a little extra for the convenience of buying something locally, and in many ways, still live off the land. No matter what lifestyle you choose, there are pros and cons. One of the inconveniences of rural life is that it can be hard to find services. Thanks to the help of many of my backcountry neighbors, I have compiled these recommendations into a resource guide for you.

It is my standard to be completely transparent, never recommending something that I have not tried myself. That being said, my dad is very handy, and therefore I have not had personal experience with all the companies in this resource guide. If I have used them, I’ve stated so. Being a born-and-raised Julianite, I am familiar with almost everyone’s reputations. I have not included anyone whom I know has a bad reputation. This doesn't mean that someone who is not listed necessarily has a bad reputation. It is just the only way I can remain transparent without publicly disrespecting someone and their business. You are always welcome to contact me if you are concerned. Additionally, I have been very open about the pros and cons locals have reported about these companies in order to remain transparent. Julian's handyman and contractors have a reputation for not always being formally trained, bonded, and doing things to current codes. I highly encourage you to ask around and read online reviews about a company before you hire them.

Disclaimer: It is the responsibility of the homeowner or tenant to make sure an individual or company has the proper credentials and insurance before you hire them to do a task for you.
