Biggest DIY screw ups?

2 Replies

Getting ready to sell a rental, and realized how much I forgot about doing a big painting job. 1/4 of the way through I broke down and shelled out for a 18-inch rollar and big painting tray. Wished had done it sooner, so much faster than using a 9 inch. 

Account Closed I think that is a bit of hyperbole.  "Biggest DIY screw ups?"  Having to "break down" before you "shell out" maybe $50?  I've lost $25K on a flip.  THAT's a big screw up!

Larry,  I plan on having much bigger DIY screw ups, so far I've been fortunate, and my biggest loss has been time. I have been much more conservative on the projects taken on than many though.
