Default DIY/Home Improvement forum?

Can anyone recommend a Do It Yourself / Home Improvement forum? I'm not the most handy guy so I need help with basics like how to install a fan/light in a bathroom, how to install a ceiling fan, how to improve yard drainage. I have enough tools to be dangerous.

Methinks "TxBuilder" would be our Tx; mentions homebrewing and jeeps as two of his other hobbies

Doesn't seem to have nearly the traffic of this forum; ought to get Yuri (and now Dude) posting over there...

I post there too. Just started a few weeks ago. I'm Parrothead over there.

I think it's a relatively new forum. It'll pick up, IMHO.

Todd, the Richmond Convention Center is having a home improvement show the weekend of the 19th. If you're interested. We are going to try and make it up to the sailboat show this weekend.

diy.net is OK if you're looking for something specific. repairclinic.com is a good place for appliance repair info & part numbers. askthebuilder.com is a good source for homeimprovement info. your local university or extension office for info on trees, weeds, lawn info.

I've posted there once or twice - got good answers pretty quickly, but it doesn't seem to house the nut-job enthusiasts core that lurks here. Probably because DIY is more work than fun most of the time.
