"Do-it-yourself" web sites???

Hello,

I am looking for any good web sites out there that cover any and all Do-it-yourself jobs for around the home. A site that talks about siding, wallpaper, staining, lawn care, stove repair, ect. Any help would be great... Thanks Michael.

Thats my luck...

Well the next day that I listed my better fix-it sites, the top two are down. So that only leaves www.doityourself.com as the best on my list. The Trusite.com is now asking for you to sign-up with a 3-4 day delay on them giving you a password. The ehoe.com site is to me the best but there system is always going down. Good luck.

Another one to try is the Better Homes and Gardens site,
bhg.com. Wide variety of topics, including home plans.
