We started IneptHomeowner.com for a simple reason: we cannot be the only people around who struggle with “how” to work on house projects.  We’ve been homeowners for awhile, but we don’t really feel like we’re any better than we were when we started.

If you’re the type of person that can watch a TV show about how to do something, then go build it, you’re not going to learn much here.  You very well may laugh your @ss off at our adventures, and feel better about yourself in the process, so you may want to read anyway.

This site is for the rest of us.  We know what we want to do – take care of our house – but don’t necessarily know HOW to do that.  We don’t know all the terminology, probably don’t have all the best tools, nor do we want to buy that $250 tool for a one-time job.  So we…improvise.  Which often leads to:

a) bleeding

b) poor workmanship

c) our significant other telling us how good it looks while not really looking us in the eye.

So… now we have a place to go.  I am an Inept Homeowner.  So is my wife.  Join us as we explore our home improvement experiences from idea, through research and options, all the way to finished (hopefully) project.
