Why DIY?

What’s the big deal about DIY?

Are you someone who has an interest in DIY and just needs that little push to give it a go? Do you keep saying why DIY? Here’s why. 

For starters, DIY is a lot cheaper than hiring people to come and do things around the house. When you first start out you might not think so, because you will find yourself buying tools and supplies by the dozen. It is important to consider these tools as an investment, because you are going to be using them again and again and also remember you are not going to spend anything on manual laborers. 

Secondly, DIY projects allow you a certain amount of room to be impulsive. You don’t have to wait around for someone to come along and do it for you. For example, if you are planning to call a carpenter or a plumber, you really need to plan and schedule out the entire process. You need to see when the carpenter will be free and then you have to make sure that you are free at the same time. Then there’s the added headache, where you have to make sure that they are actually working and not slacking off and making you pay for their long hours of manual labor.

With DIY projects, a lot of thought HAS to go into the project to make sure that you are not in over your head. The difference is, the only person you need to take into consideration and make sure has time, is you.  One of the biggest pros of a DIY project is that if you come up with a great idea and you have the time and means to do it, you can. A DIY project doesn’t necessarily mean home improvement projects, take simple home, things like unclogging a sink, can be done by YOU at home in no time.

The most important element of DIY is YOU. If you have the time, the interest, the patience and the means, there is nothing to stop you from doing it yourself.
