Playing at Being Your Own Contractor


DIY home improvement projects can be fun and fulfilling. They can also be time-consuming, inconvenient and expensive—all good reasons to postpone a major or minor renovation. If you're itching to renovate but don't have the time or budget to spend designing your dream home, here's a potential solution for you—and it will only cost you $39.99 if you already own a WII or $19.99 if you have a Nintendo DS.

There's a new video game available for both of those systems that that will let you paint, wallpaper, hammer, garden, move furniture and regrout the tub without getting off the couch. In Our House: Party! players compete to finish these home improvement projects and earn money to build a virtual dream house. So I have to this your idea of fun?. On the one hand, if I wanted to spend time working around the house it would be good to actually get something done. On the other hand, I'm a little tempted to try it. There's just one problem...Who would I play with?
