3. Projects involving natural gas connections

Most DIYers shouldn’t attempt gas-related projects. Tasks that you think are seemingly easy, such as moving your stove to paint a wall, can turn into a potentially life-threatening situation if you don’t know what you’re doing. Natural gas is a deadly element. An improper gas line installation or a gas leak can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Unless you’re a qualified technician, don’t attempt to install that gas fire pit in the backyard. Hire a pro.
