not to sound arrogant, but knowing my skills, I would not hesitate one minute.

But, if I knew more about your carpenter skills and your pure attitude about doing the job, this would help.

If you do consider yourself a DIY'er and like doing projects like this, then I would say yes.

Your first job is a learning experience and your second job is one that could be called a peiec of cake.

I would get all the info I can find on doing it yourself, go to the homecenters on that demo day and participate in the class, talk to others that have done it.

Now, first things first, you have to understand moisture barriers, leaving about a 1/4 inch gap all around the edges for expansion and movements, then a good tight fitting, cutting around objects and using a Japanese saw to cut under things that eliminate the detail cut outs, And the most important part is finding the first run starting place and to ensure its straight which will lead to a straight line on the finish side.
