DIY may not be a good choice.
I am a committed do-it yourselfer and pride myself in the money I have saved by diving in and trying to fix something myself. I do have limits and here are the principles I apply before I try something new.
- Can I safely do the work?
- Do I have the tools and knowledge required to complete the job?
- I am physically able to lift and maneuver the pieces and parts.
- Will I be able to obtain the parts and how will I know they are the right ones?
