Pandemic DIY Projects that didn't always turn out for the best!

Pandemic Projects that don't always turn out for the best!

With many homeowners staying in during the pandemic there has been lots of do-it yourself projects going on all the time. Many people are taking the time to rethink how they use their home & for the most part things have turned out well in this survey. If not, there is always the 'do-over'.

If you have any questions about which projects will increase your homes value or should you do 'this' or 'that', give me a call for advice & discussion.

What most homeowners can do is clean and paint, after that it's best to hire the right people that know how to do it quickly and right.

I have been involved in a few do-it-yourself home upgrade projects in the past. I would much rather hire someone.

Especially when you've just completed your new house.

Lyn Sims good morning, Lyn... and a perfect illustration as to why I am not a DIY person!

Hi Lyn- my husband is very handy around the home but he does know his limitations. And if not limitations, he knows when calling in the professionals means it will be completed a lot faster.
