Best DIY Advice

“Plan the dive; dive the plan.” As an avid scuba diver since 1990, Donna has learned that you always need to be ready for the unexpected—and the same advice applies to DIY projects. Always come up with a written plan of action in the beginning, including a budget. Then, go over your plan step-by-step and ask “what if?” about every conceivable angle. Chances are you won’t think of everything, but it will at least give you a good starting point and help you avoid a lot of unpleasant surprises along the way.
