Summer’s over and those easy home projects never got started? Or finished? Check out this time-lapsed video to see how fast one can be when tackled by a team.
Considering this project took a total of 48 working hours—12 team members just 4 hours each in real-time. What if the you in DIY was plural—as in do-it-ourselves?
Imagine what a difference multiplicity could make. Instead of a working vacation, what if it only took a few friends a few hours to replace your old linoeum kitchen flooring with sustainable cork tiles?
To start a DIO group:
- simply contact friends and family who would drive you to the airport—they’re the committed ones!
- each of you writes a list of projects that seem daunting for one, but a breeze for three or more
- rotate projects and houses so everyone benefits
- for best results, assign tasks based on each persons’ strengths or experience
- be materials prepared to avoid delays
- finally check it off your list!
In the process you can teach a friend how to hem curtains or learn how to replace a faucet—the possibilities are as endless as your list.
Been there, done that? What was the project and how did it go?
