Great Information--I will use when discussing with clients the costs they are facing when deciding their budgets for closet and storage projects, saying 'Look, here is what is going on in the market', and then letting them see 'Why this closet and storage project is a smart investment in the value of your home'. I like to say, "Knowledge is power", and "creating an efficient home is a powerful choice for creating peace in your daily life".

Interesting. I do know several in that age bracket 35-54. And they all do quite a bit of DIY vs totally hiring out. One friend even makes his own furniture. His wife paints. Another friend just remodeled her kitchen with the help of another friend. They did hire a handy man for a small plumbing problem that they couldn't solve. My generation - the hippies - well, I think we tend to hire out and do fewer DIY. I know my DIY are minor ones. I don't build chicken houses anymore. LOL
