I LOVE tools!  I love watching HGTV, I loved watching Norm Abram in the New Yankee Workshop, I loved watching my dad build things in my garage.  I’m a handy sort – not a skilled handy sort, but I do love it.

If you are just starting out, familiarize yourself with tools.  If there is a community college that has construction classes, sign up!  (My husband and I took two semesters of Basement Remodeling.  I can’t count it for my post-college hours, but it’s one of the best classes I ever took.)  The main reason I think it’s important is that you’re not at the mercy of someone else to hang a shelf or build a little something.
