    Safer to always mark your cut lines as opposed to cutting along a square or
    t-square. I learned the hard way once and almost lost my finger. The blade
    can easily jump onto the surface of the square and once it does, it moves
    fast; real fast. I love that you’re teaching your children at a young age.
    kudos

    Great vid but you could have cut out a smaller section of drywall traced it
    onto another piece and screw a piece of wood to the wall then put on your
    patch piece and spackle over it

    Love the way you are teaching your kids responsibility and skills that will
    be useful throughout their lives. Wish more parents would teach their kids
    such skills instead of pick up the phone and order. Great job young men and
    dad.

    instead of buying and attaching 2x2s you should just cut the drywall back
    so about 1/2″ of the original wood is exposed so you can place a new sheet
    rock there and nail around the edges entering the wood…just a $ saving
    technique..just as solid.

    I have had a similar hole to repair and i do admit i wish i had your
    tooltips then. Glad to see a father showing his children productivity
    rather than xbox

    Clever kids! They’re likely to benefit from this type of experience working
    with dad. I hope that drywall is post 80’s though. Wouldn’t want them
    breathing any asbestos!

    Good to see two young kids doing something productive rather than sitting
    on their ass playing video games!

    Great video! Gave me confidence to attempt a similar repair in my home. The
    website also helps a lot!

    Thank you for these great videos. I have saved your website for future
    reference. Thanks again and keep up the good work. In a few years your kids
    will be able to make a killing over the summer’s between school years if
    they aren’t doing it already.
