Sometimes even a DIY specialist needs a little extra help
While any DIY enthusiast worth their salt will always investigate ways to get things done cheaper by doing the job themselves, smart operators also recognise that sometimes you need to bring in the experts.
One of the most important things to remember in the planning stages is that you do not necessarily have to treat a home project as all or nothing - in fact, the opposite is true.
If you have identified areas that you know you are capable of handling yourself then go right ahead. Hire any tools you might need but don't have access to in your own garage and get things started, so that if you end up calling on help down the track the overall task is already part the way to completion.
With a bathroom DIY job, for example, you might choose to take care of the design, demolition, tile selection, fitting and fixture choices, hook or rail installation and paintwork.
These are all important stages and will likely save you plenty of cash in the long run.
But when it comes time to install electricity outputs or hook up the plumbing connections, there is no shame in calling in a tradie to ensure it gets done right the first time around.
Of course if you are a highly skilled and experienced renovator then you may well be more than capable of seeing the project right through to the final step - the key is to know your limits, use the best equipment and take precautions as necessary.
