I am the mother of 5 wonderful children ranging in age from 14 to 33. I am an avid DYIer...I just cannot see myself paying someone for something that I can do, besides the fact that this makes money stretch further!! Last summer my son-in-law and myself added a new cedar deck to our house. The old one was 30 plus years old and ready to fall apart. Now we have the showcase deck that I have always wanted!!
