I will now list the things that are well known about doing projects around the house but are not said aloud.

  1. You will do projects around the house to learn what you’ll never do again.
  2. You will have to measure it more than once.  
  3. You will have to cut it more than once.  
  4. Everything looks easier on YouTube.  
  5. The things you are trying to join together perfectly: they are not square. 
  6. Nothing is square.  
  7. Everything is heavy.  
  8. You probably have too many tools.  
  9. You obviously need more tools.
  10. Who is going to clean up that mess? You are.  
  11. If it doesn’t fit, force it.  
  12. If you can jump it, you can caulk it.  
  13. All the things should be aligned. Why won’t all the damn things be aligned? See number 6.  
  14. The things that are the most difficult to do are the things no one will notice.  
  15. The thing you tried really hard to do and were content with even though it wasn’t perfect is the thing everyone will notice.
