Unless you own a newly built house, your home to-do list never seems to end. It can range from the everyday normal cleaning and minor maintenance to tackling a big home improvement project (repaint the master bedroom, organize the garage, update the bathroom fixtures, etc.).
So, until you purchase and build your dream home, you might feel compelled to handle some of these projects on your own. The challenge with any do-it-yourself (DIY) project, of course, is figuring out how to complete it without having to call in the professionals to fix everything after the fact — and spending a lot of extra money in the process. That’s where The Family Handyman DIY Tip Genius app comes in.
This app, available for free in both the iTunes and Google Play stores, offers more than 300 tips on a wide variety of DIY projects, including carpentry and woodworking, cleaning and organization, lawn and landscaping, pest control and painting, all from the resources of The Family Handyman magazine.
You can receive a “tip of the day” on a different project idea each day, watch how-to videos or get expert advice on avoiding common DIY mishaps. You can save your favorite tips within the app for future reference or browse various categories, such as building and remodeling, cleaning, lawn and garden or painting, for ideas and handy tricks of the trade.
Most important, The Family Handyman DIY Tip Genius app contains information for DIYers of all levels — from beginner to advanced — so you can determine if a project is within your comfort zone or if you feel ready to take on a bigger challenge without needing to call in the pros.
And, when you’re ready to live in a home that doesn’t require so much maintenance, visit New Home Source, where you can find your dream home.
