do it yourself


 By Nancy Clement

November 11, 2011 (La Mesa) - Fall is a good time of year to work on do-it-yourself project, as the weather is cooler.  Many repairs you can do yourself for the cost of items for repairs.   If you have more time than money trade a home repair project with a friend, you work together on their project and they work with you to complete your project.  You could start with a small project and as your skills increase, take on more
advanced projects.
