4 Reasons Why You Should Do-It-Yourself
Not everyone has the courage to screw-up. When you do something yourself, you are giving yourself an opportunity to improve your skills (and use your brain). There's a great sense of reward from making something, rather than just watching someone do it.
SAVE LOTS OF MONEY
Don't waste hard earned cash by asking someone to doing things that you're perfectly capable of doing.
GET EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT
This is true if you have a vision on how you want a space to be but the contractor just don't get it. Be in control of everything by doing it yourself.
ACQUIRE A NEW SKILL
By having the courage to try out something you haven't done before you not only enrich your experience, you also acquire a new skill that you can use for life.
GET THE SENSE OF ACHIEVEMENT
This is probably the top most reason for most DIYers. Being able to actually see (and do) something from planning to fruition is such a rewarding experience.
