Overview


Do It Yourself ... Easy!

Every homeowner knows that if you wait long enough, a home project will pop up. Whether out of need (broken light switch), or because of a want (a dimmer switch to improve the ambience), there are always electrical projects around the house.

For most homeowners, household fix-it projects aren't a daily occurrence, and the knowledge to perform even some of the simplest projects isn't common knowledge.

For author Ron Hazleton, these projects are daily occurrences and in this book he walks you, step-by-step, through the most basic and most common electrical projects all homeowners will encounter. Even if you've never picked up a screwdriver, you'll be able to easily follow the steps to electrical home repairs and improvements.

Projects in this book include:

  • Adding a new outlet or switch
  • Install low-voltage outdoor lighting
  • Replacing a light fixture
  • Install a programmable thermostat
  • Install a ceiling fan

Instructions are abbreviated, and the murky, indistinct illustrations are lifted straight from the show. Pass on this one.
