    Ha ha, good one Tim, I see what you’re trying to do here, sneak a little covert data-gathering for your new gig into the blog ;<)

    For small things around the house, I try to do it myself. For larger projects, say, like a new front porch, I'll be calling the professionals.

    I love/hate doing it myself. I hate it because half the time it takes longer than I had thought, I find myself in over my head and have to scramble and I typically don’t have all the parts, pieces, tools that I need to complete the project. I love it because my collection of tools keeps growing and growing; and my knowledge and ability to do things keeps getting better and better.
