Point #1...sorry about the spelling my friend...I'm just a backwoods suthin boy with very little education but I love Jesus with all my heart and soul and I hope u know him as well! :)
point #2... I'm a Licensed Contractor and I encourage my customers to do anything and everything they can themselves during a renovation IF they choose to do so in an effort to save them money and so they will actually enjoy the end result as them having the opportunity to participate in it's completion...just gives them a warm fuzzy feeling knowing they helped and I get to enjoy the company of some wonderful people
