How to Navigate Website
You can view all of my Posts by clicking on the following Link: HelpMeFixHome.com
This site is set up to accommodate all types of Home Renovation People: from the Dabbler to the Professional, from the Newcomer in Home Projects to the seasoned Weekend Warrior. So, in order to make this the best experience for all, here are some helpful Tips as to how this site has been set up and How to Navigate Website.
Use of Colors
My use of Colors is not random. I have chosen specific Colors, Bolding, and Underlining to indicate specific things. Although it is my intention to attempt to stay consistent in my use of these, I may occasionally stray, simply for aesthetics.
The following will explain:
- Green & Bold = Instructions for the seasoned workers, usually found at the beginning of each Step in each Project’s Instructions; less detailed and right to the point.
- Black = General information, as well as, Step-by-Step detailed Instructions for each Step. These will follow the Green & Bold Instructions in each Step.
- Blue, Bold, and Underlined = Post Titles and Headings and Materials & Supplies Headings, as apposed to Tools and Supplies Headings which are in black.
- Blue & Underlined = Link
- Red & Bold = Warnings and Tips (everyone should take a look at these)
- Bold and/or Underlined = Emphasis
All of my posts are set up with Step-by-Step Instructions for each Project, and are constructed in a way to accommodate both the experienced and the inexperienced. The first paragraph or two in each of the Steps in every Project contains a quick overview of the task to be completed. It is presented in Green & Bold. For the experienced Project worker who is already familiar with most of the details for completing particular tasks, this may be the only Instructions that are needed.
For the less experienced, each Step goes on to explain the task to be completed in great detail, walking you through each task in a true Step-by-Step fashion. The details often contain various Tips and Warnings, so it would behoove even the most experienced person to at least skim through those in order to avoid an issue that they may have forgotten.
Each post will also contain 2 lists at the beginning. The first list is for Materials & Supplies Needed in order to complete the Project. The second list contains the Tools & Supplies Needed for completion. At the end of each list will be links to pages in my Top Menu, containing an explanation of the items, as well as, links to my Recommended Suppliers for purchasing any of the items needed. See my Top Menu section below for more information.

In closing, I encourage you to post Comments at the bottom of any Project, noting your success or failure in completing that particular Project. Comments and/or Questions should be Project related where posted. For a personal, rather than public conversation, visit my Contact Me page.
I will do my best to Comment on your Comments and to answer all of your Questions promptly. Please remember, no Question is a stupid one. We all had to learn this information at some point.
It is important that you understand the Terminology and proper Tools to use for each particular Project if you want to complete that Project to the best of your ability.
Knowledge is a powerful thing. The more knowledge that you acquire in a particular area, the better you will feel about yourself, and the more you will be apt to attempt that next, new unfamiliar Project with greater confidence.
So, the Best of Luck in All of Your Home Projects! You Can Do It!
