I am a homeowner who simply got tired of paying high prices for repairs I could have performed myself with the proper knowledge. In fact, my first major repair was my washing machine. I simply watched a few YouTube videos, called around to a couple of shops to price the part, purchased it for a little over ten dollars, then put some muscle into it. That repair changed how I viewed my ability to fix things around my home. My next repair was a kitchen faucet and now a repair to a wall in my upper floor bathroom (I just need to sand and paint the area). Thus the purpose of this website. I want visitors of this site to leave feeling empowered enough to do repairs that will not only save them money, but enable them to use their newfound knowledge and abilities to help others.
