Lady DIY Please have mercy on me


Working professional, mom of two girls - 3 years and 5 mos. Husband & I just purchased our first home! Yay. While its not our forever home we don't want to spend a ton doing tear downs & remodels. Its a standard 60's ranch in Southern CA. Looking for help on updating baths, kitchen, landscape & sun-room on a budget. Whoa? Sorry to unload so much so soon! See you around the board - I posed my first topic under construction (cold sunroom). I'm new to DIY, know little to nothing about this stuff but am happy to learn and work! Thanks in advance.

Lady DIY Please have mercy on me


As a woman, I assure you, that gender plays very little role in the quality of help you get on the site. Everyone helps everyone that's the point. We have lots of DIY moms on the site.

My only suggestions are to:

1. Use descriptive titles, not generic ones;
2. Ask specific questions;
3. Include pictures and specific details as often as possible.

Lots of luck
