About J.S.

I’m J.S., I created and am the content manager at DIYHouseSkills.com. I do the research and write the articles that appear on this website.

I’ve learned many household skills during my life. I learned some basic skills as a child as I watched both my parents. Later as I grew up and moved into my first apartment I was faced with having to learn a few more household skills, such as doing laundry, ironing, vacuuming, etc.

Then finally after purchasing my first house, I realized just how much there was to know and learn. I found myself visiting the home improvement stores almost weekly.

But I enjoyed learning how to fix and maintain my own home instead of relying on professional services.

One of the things I’ve learned over the years is how to do basic repairs and maintenance on my own home. For example, one of the most common things that need to be done is changing the air filters. Another common task is painting. I’ve also learned how to do basic plumbing and electrical repairs.

While some people may be intimidated by these tasks, I think it’s important to at least know the basics so that you can save yourself time and money by not having to call a professional for every little thing.

We can all strive to become at least a little more self-sufficient. I want to pass along useful information to anyone looking to learn new household skills themselves.
