I like to *try* to do everything myself at least once, and fortunately (?) my home provides me with
plenty of opportunities.
I picked up a lot of know-how working with my dad; I started helping
him out as his "apprentice" when I was 7 or so.
So far I have replaced my windows and some doors, remodeled
my bathrooms, repaired several rotten floor joists, replaced an HVAC system, and made an
awesome raised-bed garden among other things.
I have no idea what I will do when I run out of things to work on.
We grew these cool purple carrots in the garden
