The Instant and Do-it-Yourself Age
The world has indeed become smaller as population multiplies out of proportion. People have become more mobile. Life is fast-paced and hectic these days. And because we wish we had more hours in a day, we invented quick meals called fast food in instant, no-cook packages. And instead of taking time and investing money and effort in gourmet dishes and beautiful homes, we prefer to do-it-yourself. Today, almost anything from soaps to root beer, to radios and mini-motors to log cabins and carports, all come in do-it-yourself packages.
Do-it-yourself (DIY) kits have many advantages. First and foremost, it is economical. It serves a very practical purpose as in the case of carports and log cabins because the instructions are easy to follow, therefore you can do it yourself. It will not cost you as much because you are not paying labor.
It is fast and easy. If you needed a practical home addition, like an attached carport, it is easier and faster to get a kit and do it yourself. Phoning around for possible contractors take time. Meeting is a necessary hassle to discuss job details. If all you need is limited protection for your car or a convenient covered walk from you car to your front door, the carport kit makes more sense.
It is a good friend-family get together activity. We all need to spend more time with family and friends to stay in touch and be close with people we care about. But because we need more than idle talk to bring us together, DIY projects are excellent reasons to bring family and friends together to accomplish a goal.
It is a good hobby to pick up to exercise your brain and muscles. Assembling a log cabin kit into a livable space puts your hands and your mind to good use. If you do it over and over again, you become an expert in the process. In time, you may even improve on the original kit, discover new and more efficient ways to put the pieces together. Who knows? Maybe in time, you might even go as far as designing your own cabin and breaking it down to a DIY log cabin kit.
Perhaps due to its practicality, usability and ease, DIY kits are here to stay and the collection will grow on a steady pace. Beyond these, such projects inspire creativity in people and give us all a good reason to work together, even with those we don’t commune with often. It is very practical, economical and interesting to do.
