Do It Yourself...The Rest of the Story
If you know me, you know that I am a bit of a DIY guy. Unless it's going to violate a code or put my family at risk, I will try to do it or fix it myself. We are all accustomed to DIY resources on the Internet. What is not readily apparent with such resources is that there are often many details and complications left out of the discussion. That's where this post comes in to fill in the blanks (and, in some cases, let me vent).
This post is not meant to repeat what you can easily find on Google. Rather, I try to capture the rest of the story, as I have experienced it, so that your road may be a little smoother if you take the same trip.
