New member here, I like to call myself a "seasoned noob" with 85% confidence, 10% luck, and 5% skill . . .

Anyway, my hobby is DIY... why pay someone when you can do it yourself, right? I've done:

- 15x30 Deck
- new garage door opener
- new lighting fixures
- 600 sq/ft finished basement w/ half-bath(including all electrical, HVAC, and plumbing)
- Ceramic hall, half bath (using backer board)
- Marble floor master bath (using Ditra)
- Home Bar w/ electrical and plumbing
- Current project: Kitchen renovation: granite counters (cant do that myself), tile backsplash, new microwave range hood

Here's some examples of my DIY work:

Marble Flooring, Master bath:




Home Bar: (the finished basement around it is my work also)

best thing about that (aside from the liquor) is that i think that entire project cost < $1000
