Nagging little problems are the bane of every homeowner’s existence, and the professionals charge big bucks for repairs. Caring for a home is more like a marathon than a 100-yard dash. Trying to sprint through myriad repairs in the days before you host a dinner party or the in-laws come for a visit only leads to frustration. And, like a winded runner dropping out of a race early, you won’t finish. But if you pace yourself, taking on just one project a weekend, you’ll always be working with fresh legs.
