21 People Who Proved That DIY Home Renovations Aren’t a Tragedy

A famous rule says that if you want changes in your life, start by redecorating your house. But there are some people that like going a step further than merely rearranging furniture — they demolish the walls and start over, making their homes even more beautiful than before. And some people’s homes boast a garden as well, which also requires plenty of attention. And it’s these kinds of people who have never heard of the word, “lazy.”
