If you've got it in mind to take on any kind of construction project, there's a fair chance you'll need to make a few runs to a building supply store. Knowing exactly what to get depends on the type of project in question, but there's generally a way to figure out how much you're going to need of which materials.
Many types of building projects are entirely within the realm of possibility, even to a pair of inexperienced hands. All kinds of resources for information on building projects can be found online, and you can also seek advice from the employees at your local building materials and supplies stores. Beyond that information and the willingness to absorb it, the most important things you need are the patience and focus to measure, cut, and fasten everything properly.
If you have the experience and imagination, you can build virtually anything you can think of. Desks and chairs, bookshelves and tables, patio furniture, porch, or gazebo...the list is practically endless. There's few things in the world more satisfying than enjoying a piece of furniture that you built with your own hands, or a deck that took a full week of planning, and another week of sweat to put together.
