Want to chat about home improvement? We all know that commiserating is a big part of what keeps remodelers–and their home owners–sane. If you can’t talk about the ups and downs of home improvement and share ideas about what makes a great kitchen, why bother, right?

Home Improvement TweetChat

Now comes Twitter to the scene and it takes on a whole new dimension. If you’re ready to Tweet about remodeling, check this out. The folks at ReliableRemodelers and RepairHome are starting bi-weekly chats for all you contractors and home improvement aficionados.

It’s a support Tweet, if you will. Stop in, get advice and share ideas for running a successful contractor business and tackling your next DIY project. Here’s the scoop. It starts this Monday, Feb. 7 from 4:00-4:30 PST. Find it at #RemodelBiz.

Monday’s TweetChat topic for #RemodelBiz will be on how to organize the job at the end of the day–keeping it clean, setting time limits, whether to use a cleaning service and more. (I’ve seen some messy contractors over the years, so hopefully they will tune in!)

Home Improvement Forums

While we’re on the chat circuit, there also some good remodeling forums for home owners to check out. Whether you’ve got a specific question or just want some inspiration–if she can paint her kitchen cabinets, why can’t I?–check these out:

  • Oldhouseweb.com–has great forums on everything from painting an old house to replacing windows and finding period molding. This remodeling stream focuses on my favorite–pre1900s houses. We know those houses need lots of work, so there’s plenty to chat about!
  • http://www.homeownernut.com/–this blog from the folks at http://www.homeownernet.com/ takes you through all aspects of home improvement, with some cool retro furniture threads!

Tune in.

Enjoy!
