Do It Yourself ... Easy! Every homeowner knows that if you wait long enough, a home project will pop up. Whether out of need (broken light switch), or because of a want (a dimmer switch to improve the ambience), there are always electrical projects around the house. For most homeowners, household fix-it projects aren't a daily occurrence, and the knowledge to perform even some of the simplest projects isn't common knowledge.
