2. Bathroom renovation strategies to cut costs
3. Some renovation mistakes to avoid at all costs
4. Or if you're planning to renovate small spaces

Good, good. Now I only need to find the will to tackle some of the stuff that needs fixing around the house. Any guides for that?

Readers Digest DIY Manual is actually quite good, in terms of showing you general purposing on fixing things.

I'm not bothering posting links, it's hugely distributed already in the US (where it was born) and across the UK too. You can often find a printed copy at a yard sale / car boot sale.

Most of the tech like drains, locks, cooker hobs etc etc hasn't changed much from the 60s. So even old copies still have lots of useful info.

If you are fixing OLD stuff, the old copies are more relevant, although you might have to improvise / modify some replacement parts because the originals aren't made any more.

One example - window lock keys. I can't buy the keys for my window locks because they haven't been manufactured for nearly 20 years. I have to make my own.

You think I don't know. Well, maybe you're wrong. Maybe I'm wrong.

But assuming you are always right always puts you in the wrong.

Because assume just makes an ass of u and me.

I just finished a full-scale upgrade in my apartment last year.
I could have used some of these resources.
