7.1 DANGERS - ACCIDENTS - DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY
Also consider the following:
Children and pets: Never allow children or pets in your work area. You are asking for trouble.
The right tools: Make sure you have the right tool for the job or don't do it. Lots of injuries have been caused by using the wrong gizmo. You can rent or borrow many tools.
Here are some horror stories I've seen:
== Insulation was installed with the paper backing facing the wrong way. This caused moisture to go into the attic and rot the wood rafters.
== A friend took the carburetor out of his car to rebuild it. Eventually he gave up and had his car towed to the garage where he sheepishly handed all the pieces to the mechanic.
