What project are you working on now?
I have completed many home projects. Some of the smaller projects were replacing light fixtures and new floors in my two bathrooms. The larger projects included 150ft cobblestone wall and a new exposed aggregate driveway. Currently I also have a DIY blog.Not as popular as Bob Vila, but it does pretty well.
