  • Depends on the job. If it's wiring Id call a professional. If it's painting I do it myself. Same with carpet cleaning. Building a deck? We'd do it ourselves. Installing a driveway we would call the pro's

  • If you have the money, then pay someone to do it for you. It saves hassle and they are skilled so you know it will be right. We do alot of the decorating but we are to busy for the big jobs so we pay someone to do it

  • I hire people for anything that I (or DH) don't have the skill or time to do. Trying to do things yourself when you're clueless can end up costing you a lot more in the long run.

  • I work in construction so I have a lot of friends that can help out if it is something we cannot do. But for the most part we do it ourself.
