Repairing or renovating your old home can be done by the average person with little to no skills since plumbing has come a long way, no longer having copper grade pipes.  Now we have pex pipes and shark bite fittings, tools for any application. Basic tools are hammer, saw, screw gun, square, level, tape measure and pencil and more you tube video's than you can handle.
