Would you rather hire out a home improvement job or do it yourself?
Well, let's be honest here Deb. There are some things that I simply cannot do. However, I will always try first, or at least do the research to determine if I can do it or not. I never just automatically call in help. Way to tight with my money and way too stubborn.
Painting, I'll do it and save money. If there is demo, we will have fun with some hammers But if it is a big job, like new tile, my husband can do it. He used to work construction. So yes, we do it mostly ourselves.
I was a remodeler, so I loved doing my own work. I recall making a second story for my large shed, and mystified friends, as I handled that little affair myself(Ah, the beauty of clamps!)
I love the look on a friend's face when you tell them you did the project yourself. Glad you can enjoy that feeling too
Well...maybe if I get my tools out and start measuring and look puzzled enough,
my neighbor will do it for me? Before we got married, I warned my wife that I am not Mr. Fixit at all. So, if anything major comes along, we hire it done. If it is minor (enough) I will try it.

I cannot remember the name of the hub or the hubber who wrote it. She and her husband bought a home on sloping land and totally landscaped it and did a lot of remodeling to the house, plus added a small guest cottage. The yard had several little out of the way places to sit and relax and a path up...
