Breaking down barriers to DIYing

This is a BIG question. I want to encourage you that you can do SO much to your home yourself, but I know it can be really hard and daunting for those just starting out.

We asked our listeners what they see as the major barriers to doing DIY projects and home renovating in general, and tackled them in this week's episode of the Your Home Story podcast.

This week we share our thoughts (and skills--Ashley and I differ in what we're good at) about DIY projects that are good to start with, how project costs grow, learning and having access to the right tools, and more. You are going to leave this episode with at least one of your barriers knocked down!

In this show, we chatted about:
  1. Ep 18: Design, Make, & Live: Guest Bedrooms
  2. An article on when you need a permit for a home project.
  3. How @savoring_home finds 30 minutes a day to give love to her house even with busy toddlers.
  4. @makingprettyspaces and @angelarosehome are two amazing women DIYers who inspire us with their power tools and workshops
