I'm Not Doing It Myself.

I'm Not Doing it Myself, Hugh Howard (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, New York, 1987; $8.95). This 184-page book sets out to discourage the reader from doing the actual work of remodeling, relating anecdotes proving that skilled jobs are best left to the pros. Less comprehensive than the other books, it will still prove useful to the reader trying to decide how much time and energy he or she wants to commit. A questionnaire helps you identify and assign priorities to your remodeling needs. Seven chapters tell you how to schedule the job, prepare budgets, obtain loans, and anticipate disputes. The book concludes with a glossary of building terms and suggestions for further reading.
