Not everything around this house comes easy. In my attempts to DIY, there are an endless number of moments when I am doing something for the first time: caulking windows, patching large holes, painting ceilings, etc. To do many of these things, I often use a web search or two before beginning the job.
As my contribution to those out there who are about to do the same, I am housing my own hard-earned lessons on do-it-yourself home remodeling here for your use. I guess it’s my way of paying it forward to those who have helped me.
Good luck, and I hope the tidbits in this project gallery help!
