Hello fellow Handymen, Handywomen, DIYers, and Renovation Pros!


Welcome to my new website (as of Jan 2017)! The information that you will find here is designed to help you in your current and future Home Repair and Maintenance Projects.

My name is   CJ Dodaro.   (Yes, that is a picture of me at the top of the page, along with two pictures of portions of my Primary Base.) I have a vast amount of experience and knowledge in the Home Renovation and Home Maintenance Field. I have worked in the Construction Trades for most of my working life and have been a Homeowner for over 30 years.

Rarely using outside contractors to complete any of my many projects, I have, instead, enjoyed using my own skills and knowledge to complete a wide array of Home Projects for myself, family, friends, and customers. For more information about me, visit my   About Me   page.

I will be providing you with Step-by-Step Instructions for completing a wide range of both Inside and Outside Home Projects, as well as showing you many Shortcuts that I have learned over the years. Included in each project will be a Materials & Supplies Needed section, as well as a Tools & Supplies Needed section, pertaining to that particular project. These instructions are designed to save you time and money in all of your Home Repairs, Home Maintenance, and Home Renovation Projects, as well as, to assist you in completing your projects successfully.

It is my intention to post a new project at least once or twice a week, so visit my site often. You may also email me with questions concerning your projects and/or suggestions for upcoming posts at:   or simply leave a comment in the Comments Section here, or on one of the project posts.


My FREE Monthly Newsletter contains Tips and Home Repair project suggestions appropriate for the month, as well as Tools & Supplies suggestions.

    Oh my gosh CJ …..Not sure where you live but can you please move to the coast north of Brisbane to a place called Hervey Bay! NOW!

    What an amazing resume you have and seriously I can think of anything that I could possible want done that you couldn’t do!

    Loved the way you have included terminology for ladies like me and then a list of the best tools so that I don’t go wasting money on some fancy pants tool when I could have used something much simpler AND cheaper !

    I like that you said in your reviews that al of them are “ridgey didge ” (Aussie for “True and real”)…That really impressed me and gave me a sense of honesty and integrity .

    All in all I was really impressed !

    All the best

      Thanks a lot for the kind words, Ros. I live in the Midwest, USA. I have tried to build a website that would be user friendly for All; from the beginner to the professional. The world is full of diverse people with a wide variety of skills. I wanted my site to be a benefit to Everyone. Have a great year!
