Picture of Joshua Bartlett - owner of illjustfixitmyself.com


My name is Joshua Bartlett, and I am the founder, owner, and editor at I’ll Just Fix It Myself.

For the past 19 years, I’ve been maintaining rental properties as well as my personal home. During this time, I’ve accumulated a LOT of experience with common household problems including plumbing, electrical, HVAC, painting, lawn care, and more.

I’ve unclogged toilets, but I’ve also replaced entire toilets.

I’ve changed a light switch, but I’ve also traced grounded wires through the walls to fix power issues, changed breakers, and installed new breakers will electrical lines to new areas of the home or outdoors.

I’ve mowed the lawn, but I’ve also graded the backyard, built a foundation for an above-ground pool, and installed underground sprinkler systems and drainage systems.

I’ve painted a bedside table, but I’ve also completely repainted whole-house interiors, removed popcorn ceilings, and replaced doors and trim.

In short, I’ve seen an experienced pretty much anything that a typical homeowner is likely to face.

Which brings me to my philosophy on being a homeowner:

Do it myself and save some money in the process!

My goal with this site is to help people like me learn how to fix things around the house, perform preventive maintenance, and generally become more comfortable with the idea that YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF!

Take advantage of my decade’s-long list of successes and failures before you tackle your next home improvement project!
