Are you dreaming of building a new deck in your backyard this summer? Does the thought of going to Home Depot and loading up your car with building supplies get your heart racing?
Projects around the house are exciting to plan, fun to shop for, BUT do you know what you're doing? After spending several weeks last year learning building techniques for Habitat for Humanity I realized that construction is a precise art that requires a great deal of knowledge and expertise. From a real estate perspective I've seen too many "do it yourself" renovations that leave much to be desired.
