I love these valuable tips

This audiobook deftly covers the fundamentals of do-it-yourself, from basic upkeep to a major restoration project. Plumbing, flooring, walls, ceilings, insulation, electrics, and much more are all covered by the author. The book also includes DIY ideas for the interior and outside. Budgeting and doing things economically are heavily emphasized. This book has assisted me in planning a few little DIY tasks in my home.

Excellent book to keep handy!

My husband and I just moved out to the country and there are not as many resources available to us unlike when we lived in the city. We really have no handy skills between either of us and needed some type of resource to help us understand the basics of fixing things. I really enjoyed this book because it gave actual instruction on what would need done, what to check and when to call for an expert. This is a book I will keep within reach as there are plenty things around this house that need tended to. This book would be great for new homeowners, first time living on your own, single moms and pretty much everyone!

Let me be honest

Truthfully i am down to work on most everything around the house other than plumbing and electrical work. that stuff makes me nervous but beyond that this book was amazingly helpful to me. I am lazy when it comes to fixing things around the house but am not when it comes to preventable maintenance, which is why the chapter on avoiding big problems was my favorite. Second to that learning how to enhance outdoor areas has me counting the days until winter is over!

Motivating and Informative

I initially got this book because I needed some motivation to finally build a cabinet set for the house. It was really great and motivated me to not only put that thing together over a weekend, but also inspired other projects around the house and yard.

Taught some very valuable tools that I used. Great book and I highly recommend it!

What an amazing DIY home improvement book

This is so fun to listen to. I am so excited! I am going to gather my kids to do these home projects with me. This book covers so many home improvements from indoor, outdoor, plumbing, etc. my favorite part is the outdoor yard, with spring coming in soon I want to change and clean up my yard so we can as a family spends time in our backyard. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to improve their home by themself without breaking banks.

Perfect for a total newbie like me

Having lived in an apartment with a super doing all the work for years, I really needed this as a new homeowner.
It goes from the very, very, very basics to some complicated (but totally do-able) projects. It's really well-written, and has given me a lot of confidence. Great narrator too.

DIY for everything!

I enjoyed this book and all its practical tips such as installing curtains higher to make the room feel taller. I like how it comes with the accompanying pdf that allows you to read along while listening and get the benefits of the visual pictures to aid understanding. Overall a good base for starting DIY as it covers a bit of everything.

Helpful intro guide

I’ll be totally honest and say that I’m a noob when it comes to DIY stuff. I’ve always wanted to undertake various projects around the house, but I’ve never really / actually taken the proverbial plunge.

That’s why I’m glad I found this audiobook. It served as a confidence booster — a great introduction to DIY projects. It gave me the basic knowledge I needed to feel like I know “what’s what” around the home, including what I can tackle versus what I need to bring someone else in for.

The part I found most helpful was the one revolving around WiFi / installing a router. Definitely one of those things that I feel like I should know and understand, but, until listening to the audiobook, did not. Lots of good aha moments like that here.

Everything Water!

Chapter 4 was super helpful because I have had a lot of leaks in my basement. He sure was right about pipes needing to be switched out eventually. Thanks so much for recording this book, I truly realized how much I didn't know especially about plumbing.
