One home improvement project per week

I started out pretty bad at home improvement. I didn't know a planer from a crowbar. Since moving away from home though, I've discovered that I can't just stay ignorant, and have to step up to take responsibility. I've taken it on myself to start and finish one new project each week, whether that be tackle putting in a new toilet, or just paint a room. I've redone carpeting in the basement and installed sub floor, and I've even cleaned up!

What the trick is, is to not be afraid to ask for help. I asked for help at the home depot, read the literature on the topics, watched instructional videos, and kept up my skills. I learned what not to do by failing, and by constantly improving my skills through trial and error. It's really the only way to learn and life, and I've really benefited from it.
