Do it Yourself!

Mike Ohrberg - Habitatby Mike Ohrberg


Home improvement “Do It Yourself” projects are all the rage! There are several television shows and an entire network devoted to helping homeowners remodel, refurbish and restore their homes. The print industry has grabbed on to the attention by producing guides, magazines and books devoted to DIYers, and bloggers are racking up major followers posting step-by-step instructions on everything from installing your kitchen sink to building a house from the foundation up.


If a quick scan of your own home results in a laundry list of projects and ideas for improvement, consider getting more information and insight from the following online resources: – Just enter keywords into the search engine on and “how to” videos will pop up. Be sure to scan through several videos to get a variety of ideas and resources for your projects. – An online magazine and blog offering articles, videos and checklists for almost any project. – Find inspiration, share your projects and consider entering into contests where you can win money and prizes!  


According to, the two most popular DIY books are “Black & Decker: The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair” and “Home Improvement 1-2-3” published by The Home Depot.
