In October 2011, John Moore from radio station CFRB 1010 in Toronto, Ontario interviewed Mike Holmes about DIY projects. As one would expect, Mike strongly discourages lay people from approaching most reno projects without consulting the professionals. "I'm against DIY as a standard," he says, adding the following questions for ambitious homeowners to consider, "How old's the house? Did you need to gut the kitchen? Do you need to check the electrical, the plumbing? Does it all need to be changed? How's the structure?" Big, big questions to consider, especially given that "[i]n most cases, homeowners don't know enough." True that. Check out the full interview.
