Tell us about your DIY disasters



The new show, Broken House Chronicles on the Discovery Channel Thursdays, tracks two roommates through their sometimes-funny, always-frustrating home-repair disasters.

What about you?

Was it the simple toilet leak that led to a complete bathroom re-do, a window repair that ended in a call to the replacement experts or a paint job that took you and your better half to new levels of understanding?

Give us your name, neighborhood, daytime phone number and a paragraph or two on the home repair job that ended in disaster.

Send your stories to jkraft@enquirer.com or to DIY Disasters, The Cincinnati Enquirer, 312 Elm St. Cincinnati, OH 45202.
