Are you a keen DIY-er or do you prefer to get the professionals in?
For 25 years I lived with and was married to a builder/roofer/foreman/construction superintendent. When I lost him to sickness in 2018 I was completely at a loss when I needed things repaired. I guess I took a lot of it for granted. Growing up my dad did most of the stuff around the house too. Anyhow, after having one crappy contractor rip me off after another I am now a complete DIY-er unless it comes to plumbing and most electrical. Just yesterday I was leveling the drawers on one of the kitchen cabinets that I guess I never noticed was so crooked. The guy did such a horrible job it isn’t even fixable in most of the areas. Do you know how much I paid for those cabinets that are now all f-ed up?!?!?! Anyhow, I told David if I ever redo a kitchen I am doing the installation of all the lower cabinets, the uppers are too heavy.
