Dex’s reputation as a handyman spreads around Samwell’s campus pretty quickly.
It starts at the Haus, obviously, where he fixes up Betsy as best as he can, until he can’t fix her anymore. By then, the entire hockey team has figured out that Dex is pretty good with tools. When he’s working for dibs, he helps Lardo with her art projects, until he realizes Lardo herself knows how to use all these power tools and she doesn’t need his help with construction as much as she needs help lifting and moving heavy things. He replaces the showerhead in Shitty and Jack’s bathroom, fixes the screen in the back door, and repairs the railing on the porch. Nursey starts calling him “Mr. Fix-It” and he only pretends to hate it the first few times.
