fix the house? Women can do it!
I grew up watching my dad fix the house on his days off. He worked 12 hours days and was usually off Sunday and Monday. Sundays were ALWAYS days for worship and family, maybe a trip or two to the hardware store for the next project. Then came Monday………He was either cutting down trees, cleaning out the gutters, replacing doors, laying flooring, painting, fixing leaky faucets or hanging wallpaper. You name it, he did it. I never saw a handyman come over to repair anything when I was growing up. NEVER! And the best part of all……his fix-it partner…….MY MOM.
I learned a lot from my parents. I have been doing my own do-it-herself project for the last eleven and a half years, that’s how long I’ve owned my own home. And let me tell you that homeownership has it’s down side, there is ALWAYS something that’s needs to be fixed, repaired, painted, cut, etc.etc. If I’m not quite sure how to handle the project that needed to be done, there are a lot of resources out there to help with the project, www.ehow.com is one of them or www.doityourself.com is another.Reading and learning before you tackle a fix-it project, is a great way to go about it. There are many websites you can go on that have home improvement information to help with the projects.
My recent do-it herself project…..A bathroom remodel. (OK, I had a lot of help, from my future husband.) We did it together. Let me tell you one thing, ok maybe two…..
1. Nothing went in easy. EVERYTHING was replaced and it was not an easy swap.
2. Blood, sweat and tears REALLY went into that remodel.(No Joke)
But, it was all worth it. I learned a lot with the remodel as well as every project I do. Just because you are a women does not mean you can’t do it. YOU CAN!!
