My take on DIY vs 'full service' is having someone else acting as a 'general contractor' saves me from a ton of time spent babysitting subcontractors. Someone that knows which subs are reliable/available is absolutely worth it. Paying for this versus burning my time/sanity is trade-off I've learned is worth making.

That said, for some things on the cutting edge or involving my own very specific expectations... it's worth learning/doing enough for DIY. The gamble here is will I have enough time/patience to spin up a sufficient level of knowledge/skill vs babysitting/paying a subcontractor to make the attempt.

I'm grateful to be in a position to spend accordingly.
