We're designing this Resource Links page to provide you with links to tools and resources that can help you with your home improvements and home upgrades. We haven't necessarily had the chance to thoroughly check out each of the sites listed. But if we've listed a site, business, or organization, it's because we honestly believe it could be helpful to you. We can't make any guarantees, but we think you might want to check out the sites below.
In the meantime, this page is a growing work in progress. So, whenever you're looking to do a home improvement or home upgrade, you should check back with us here to see if we've found something new that can be of help. You can also drop us a line right from this page. Just click here.
We keep adding to the bonus content here on myHomeUpgrades.com. As we do, we'll keep a list right here, so that you can find all of our own home improvement resources in one handy place:

Steve is a small engine repair tech who has a large and growing set of HOW TO videos and other info designed to help you fix your own equipment, like
"I want Steve’s Small Engine Saloon to SAVE YOU TIME, FRUSTRATION AND MOST IMPORTANT, MONEY!" - Steve
I found Steve when my STIHL leaf blower wouldn't rev up. I figured it was going to cost me about $100 to have it fixed. Then I found Steve's Small Engine Saloon video on this exact problem when I searched YouTube for "STIHL blower won't rev". His video got straight to the point.
"I have five options for you on how to repair this. Some of them are the proper way to fix this. Some of them are not so proper." - Steve, explaining how to fix a STIHL blower that won't rev up.
I used option number 3 and was back in business in less than 5 minutes for FREE! (BTW, here's that video.)
P.S. Be sure to check out the short video and post I've put up to say thanks to Steve for all his help. You can see it here: http://myhomeupgrades.com/leaf-blower-repair/
Often, when doing a home improvement project, basic questions come up about what your local law says about your project.
To help answer these questions, one really helpful resource is the library of municipal codes that is maintained by Municode. Municode has grown into a set of resources and services revolving around local governments throughout the United States. But their library of local codes and local ordinances is still a favorite resource for finding out what the local law is. It's organized by state and then city, and you can check it out here: Library.Municode.com
