I have two questions:
a) Unfortunately, I have no real clear idea what exactly is it that building maintenance does on a day to day basis. I've googled 'what does a maintenance man do', 'building maintenance,' etc, but I haven't been able to get a good idea of what a daily schedule would look like. It's a university of about 500-600 people, if that makes a difference. I'd like one of my MCs take the other on a tour of what his new duties will be, as he's just starting out.
b) Related to that: I’m also having trouble coming up with specific ways in which magic could replace/assist regular household technologies (not just in maintenance areas, but also in everyday life). I’ve got things like spells (patterns) of preservation in pantries to keep food fresh, and ovens that run on magic rather than firewood, but, uh, past that I am coming up fairly blank. No idea what to google for this one. Any ideas?
