Workshop community members are a talented and creative bunch, and generous in sharing their knowledge and experience. Everybody has to start from somewhere, and everybody struggles with some tasks or finds them intimidating. So it's fantastic that Workshop can help connect people and solve their most difficult D.I.Y. problems.
To make sure we are helping as many Workshop members as possible, I'm keen to hear what are your biggest home improvement challenges.
What D.I.Y. tasks do you find the most difficult?
What jobs around the house and garden do you find consume the most time?
What problems do you find are the hardest to fix at your place?

I'm with @JoshRaf - budget!
We always have ideas for improvement projects around the house and tend to underestimate time and budget the most. Trying to get into a habit of planning more and cost up materials before committing to a job.
I always start a new project with interest and enthusiasm and take care to get everything right...particularly with timber projects and make sure everything looks nice and fits together properly...
If the project is over several days, I start to get a bit slack and start to make errors..I start rushing through things and don't take as much care as I did when I first started..
In the end I just want to get it finished so I can start using it...and of course the errors start creeping in..Timber gets cut to the wrong size and the finish is not quite what I had in mind in the beginning.!
