    I was half hoping this post was a listing of fan pages for the show. I suppose what you have is a lot more practical though.

    Make sure you know what you are getting yourself into before you start any projects on your own. Otherwise you might end up with a PERMANENT work in progress.

    I have done some home improvement myself. Putting in ceiling fans, replacing shower heads, etc. I myself love it albeit afterwards. Doing it isn’t so much fun but the rewards after are great. The fact that I am the one that has done it is the best reward.
