A good way to save on your remodel or your efforts to make your home more energy efficient, or even to add desired storage and other features is to purchase a do-it-yourself kit and save on the custom work costs and the labor costs. Kits are available for everything from awnings and canopies to spa enclosures to retractable awnings, to garden sheds and sunrooms. The kits are less expensive than buying the various materials separately, and your investment of a little sweat equity to follow instructions can save a bundle. Some kits include pre-cut materials. You can invest a little time and effort in these easy projects and save redirect the money you save to things you can’t do yourself or to some upgrades. Kit instructions are easy to follow, and you’ll have fun building something. Even more, you will have bragging rights!
