How much DIY do you actually DY?
We bought this old house 13 years ago with an eye to all of its "possibilities." It was a real "fixer-upper." You know what that means.
We have updated parts of the house, but have ignored the huge bonus room. The original owners closed in a 3 car garage, so you can imagine how big it is. Since we moved in the room has become a catch-all for everything and everybody.
We finally emptied everything into the carport and other rooms of the house, ripped up the nasty old carpet, and are preparing to lay ceramic tiles. The job is growing by the minute. We discovered some hurricane damage we had to repair, strange wiring set-ups, and at every turn we find more work to do. Argh!
I am very close to pulling out my mad money and calling a professional to take over, but DH is determined (and irritable). I'm wondering how many Wootizens do their own work on projects like this. We are obviously bargain hunters, so I assume most of us try to save in other ways, too. Where do you draw the line?
