When It's More than A House Repair Project
Perhaps more than anything else, doing your own house repairs
imparts a sense of pride in you as a homeowner. You have accomplished
something when you have nurtured a landscape from a few scattered
saplings and shrubs to a cool, green haven. It's reassuring to know your
family sleeps safe at night because of the home security system you
installed. You glow with pride when guests comment on how inviting your
living room is and settle in on the couch for warm conversation.
Happiness is gathering your friends and family for a leisurely summer
barbeque on the cedar deck you just built. Sweat equity is more than a
way to increase the value of your home to future buyers; it is a way to
enhance the value of your home to you.
It's a Way of Life...Do you have a list of home improvement projects that, somehow, never
seems to end? Do you get up at the break of dawn on weekends to clean
the pool, reseed the lawn, repair the screens, and weather-strip the
doors without even being asked? Does your mother envy your annual flower
garden and ask you for tips on painting her flower box? Do you look
forward to Saturday afternoon when everyone's out of the house and it's
just you, some lumber, and the unfinished basement? Do you invite
friends and family over for a barbeque or dinner every Sunday so they
can admire the cedar deck you just built or the way you improved the
flagstone walk or the landscape lighting you installed?
Of course you do, because to you, do it yourself means more than just
scratching a few chores off the list. It means you revel in challenges,
big and small; you set goals and achieve them; you are creative and like
to share your creativity with others. Do it yourself means you revel in
your ability to take care of your house, your family. You know the value
proper home maintenance and you know you can expect to have that value
returned to you while you live in your home and when you sell it, and
you're proud to have created that value.
