There is an infinite number of home improvement projects that a person can take on. But, if you're a manly man, that will narrow some of your focus a little bit. Along gender lines, you might consider that a feminine home improvement project might be redecorating a kitchen with frilly white linens. And a masculine project might be creating a porch outside where you have to chainsaw all of your own wood and then hammer in 5-inch nails with the baby sledge. Reality isn't exactly like that. But, there are still things that can be considered appropriate for someone who wants to take on manly home improvement. You need to get your money straight. Running out of cash in the middle of a project is not manly. You can also approach it from the concept of creating a man cave. It's also important to know where your level of experiences with DIY projects. and by the way, being stubborn to the point of failure is not manly.  

First, Get Your Money Straight

  If you want to do a major home improvement project, you have to get your money straight. Unless you have a significant amount of free cash flowing on the side, that means you probably have to get a home improvement loan. As long as you can convince an institution of your credit and responsibility, this shouldn't be too much of a problem. Make it your responsibility to understand money before making any purchases.  

Envision the Man Cave

  Do you plan on building a man cave in your basement? That's often one of the home improvement projects that the guy in a family is going to take on first. In his mind, he sees a gigantic TV screen, theater audio speakers spread around, and maybe even a pool table in the middle of the room. It's expensive, but it may be worth it if that's on your bucket list.  

Choose Your DIY Level Of Experience

  When you start looking for manly home improvement DIY projects, make sure you understand your personal level of experience. There is nothing less manly than trying to make a gazebo from scratch when you don't know the difference between a hammer and a nail.  

Don't Be Stubborn

  In the end, being stubborn is not manly. If you need help, ask for it. If you don't know how to do something, research it or find someone who does understand a process. There are a million things that you can do around your home to create a better environment. But starting something without knowledge of how to finish it, or trying to do something far beyond your skill level and failing miserably is not going to give you much street credit.
