It turned to be very useful for us - first time homeowners. Our house was a foreclosure, so there were tons of things to fix about it. This book has information on basic repairs such as repairing a light fixture, fixing pipes, replacing toilets, installing faucets, painting tips, new floor installation, gutters, etc. etc. The photos are detailed, description is simple. We definitely recommend it.

If you are a new home-owner or somebody who is not confident in basic repairs, this book is perfect! Each section includes step by step instructions with color photos. At the beginning of each repair is a labeled color photo of all the tools and supplies you'll need to do the job.

What I love most about this book is that it covers not only simple repairs like replacing an outlet, but even covers how to fix squeaky floors or to tune up a garage door. I've never had much experience doing my own repairs, but this book has greatly built my confidence and has me always looking forward to the next project.

Of the basics books I've seen, this one may cover fewer projects, but it covers them with background info/detail many others don't.

I bought this book as a gift to my husband when we moved into our first house. It has been such a useful tool being first time homeowners as well as neither of us being particularly handy. I would really recommend it to any first time homeowner as well as to anyone that is not that handy and needs some great photos and easy to follow instructions.

My husband and I bought this book after being overwhelmed with all the home improvements we wanted to make. Steps are easy to follow, helpful pictures, and good variety of common home improvements. Great for first time homeowners!
