Best DIY Advice

The ground-up renovation of two homes made Bob and his wife very proud of what they achieved. They had minimal experience at the outset, and it took a lot of hard work. His best advice is to not rush and to not continue working when you are tired. Both lead to mistakes, there is a potential for accidents, and the task usually ends up taking longer anyway.
