The Honey–Don’t List

By Nicole Irving, Publisher and Editor-In-Chief

We either have one at home, or know of one. You know, that partner who thinks he/she is Mr/Mrs. Fix Everything. And, while we do appreciate their skills and their go-get-’em attitude, we all know that there are certain things that they should leave to the professionals … so behold, the Honey-Don’t list.

Anything that has to do with the MAIN electrical system

This should be left to a certified electrician for their safety and the safety of the house!

Detailed plumbing

There’s no reason they need to be opening valves and moving anything that has to do with the water going in and out of your home!

Large tree removal

Just picture a ladder and a chainsaw. Need I say more?

Knocking down walls

If one of those walls is a weight-bearing wall, you will end up with the second floor on the first. Not a good move!

Anything that has to do with the gas line in the home

If the gas line is left open even a bit, gas will expel and deadly carbon monoxide will fill up the home. They definitely will not want this one on their conscience.

Roof repair

Human + Being on the roof + Large gust of unpredictable Florida wind = Possible disaster.

Air conditioning repair

With temperatures already climbing, do not risk it! One night in the heat and your marriage may be on the line.

Building furniture

Although they may start with good intentions, it is cheaper in the long run to buy that rocking chair for your nursery. Work smarter, not harder!

Sewage line repair

The word “sewage” should stop them in their tracks.
