Next Avenue: PBS’s Web Site for Boomers

When NOT to do a do-it-yourself project has been a topic we cover a lot on our web site www.diyornot.com so we were happy to be included in Laura Vanderkam’s article on the new PBS web site www.nextavenue.org for Boomers which focuses on “when grown-ups keep growing.”  Laura’s article does a good job of posing questions you should ask yourself before making the decision to DIY or hire a pro. When you answer those questions it makes you think about your skill level and experience, your chance of getting hurt or damaging your house and what’s your time worth.  There’s a lot of issues to consider and her article: Home Repair: When NOT to Do It Yourself  will help you sort out the issues. Here’s a link to the article http://nextavenue.org/article/2012-06/home-repair-when-not-do-it-yourself?utm_source=July+5%2C+2012+Newsletter&utm_campaign=7-05-12+Next+Avenue+Newsletter&utm_medium=email
