Newbie might have different meanings to different people, but let's say that in my case figuring out how to choose and install a kitchen faucet is a big accomplishment
My husband and I married pretty young and I stay home with our toddler and a baby on the way, so it makes economic sense for us to learn how to repair/renovate/improve/create on our own. I also just want the satisfaction of being able to get things done as _I_ want them to be done, rather than multiplying the cost of materials to have someone else do them sloppily. At least that's been my experience with paying for repairs so far =( . We don't own yet, we rent, but there are some things I'd like to fix/change just to make us happier with what we've got.
I'd really appreciate any reading recommendations about basic plumbing, basic carpentry, basic DIY skills in general. very very very basic (like: "...then you buy a screwdriver."), something you'd give a 10 year old
I'll have many questions in the future for sure!
