DIY or hire out? Changes to windows and doors

Oh, I've lived in so many places where I wanted to add a window!! And sometimes you can add windows, replace or widen doors, or even just update interior doors. Some of those projects can be affordable DIY-able jobs, others... we recommend you hire out.

This week on the Your Home Story podcast, Ashley and I talk through our experiences with widow and door changes, and when to hire or DIY.

Projects we talked about:
  1. Ashley's kitchen window project (enlarging)
  2. Ashley's dilemma enlarging or updating glass in exterior doors
  3. My DIY door/trim update
  4. See how Ashley at The Gold Hive added a door to the backyard from her master bedroom--pro, not DIY. (Here's the reveal of the finished project.)
Here's the view through to that exterior door. Lets great light in, too!

She also removed a door going to her kitchen. (See more here.)
