My To-Do List
Professionally I work in the IT industry as a software developer and database administrator. Most programmers, I've found, love the spirit of DIY because we make a living out of solving problems and researching solutions. I built a theater room in my basement and did all the framing, drywall, electrical work, moulding, recessed cabinets for components, etc. Even built my own set of 5.1 surround sound speakers plus homemade 12" subwoofer. Pretty much the only thing I didn't tackle was laying the carpet. And before this major undertaking I had done NONE of these things. Some books and a lot of research online saved my butt on numerous occasions.
