Matt and I have attempted many a DIY project over the years and have been largely successful. But sometimes….we really weren’t. Like the time he tried to re-build a balcony without ever having rebuilt a balcony before. Actually, it came out okay, but not quite right. He didn’t stagger the planks or pre-drill the screw holes.
Then there were the countless landscaping decisions we made, that probably cost us hundreds and hundreds of dollars. The thing is, you should feel empowered to do as many things yourself as you would like, but know when it is beyond you! Here are some sound tips so that you don’t get in over your head.
