If you think about, today, when you can find tutorials for almost anything online, there is almost nothing you can’t do by yourself, as long as you are willing to put the time and the efforts. It can be a wood floor refinishing, a garage door repair, or building a new wall or room in your home. But the problems start when it is not exactly clear what exactly need to be done, and when you are trying to “think” that you figured everything before you even finished watching the tutorial.
