Thanks for your comment. You mean I'm not married to the only man in the world who hates this type of stuff and finds it very challenging. To make things even more frustrating for me - both of my brothers are joe carpenter type men which, in turn, makes my expectations that much higher. I guess I need to remember that I'm not exactly Martha Stewart either.
I'm curious - about how much did it cost you to have professionals do it and does that price reflect the cost of materials, too?
