“For the first time ever my 14 year old son consistently carries his weight around the house. As a single mom, it’s great to know he’s learning life skills that will help him be a responsible adult, and I love that my house gets cared for at the same time. Last month he found two smoke detectors that were expired. I feel like DIY Legends has our backs!”

Imagine your teen learning all the "homeowner skills" Grandpa had... and actually enjoying the process!

Is your "plan" random?

Systematic Home Care

Our ProActive Missions are designed to make strategic maintenance SUPER easy and fun! Tackling these missions will equip your teen with important (and increasingly RARE) life skills.

Need more consistency?

Build great habits

Our Chore Chain section will encourage the consistent completion of simple, daily tasks like making a bed, or taking out the trash.  As a parent you can access lead by example with your own chore chains in your Viewer’s Dashboard account. 

Lacking motivation?

Develop Ambition with Side Quests

Record the completion of just about any kind of maintenance. Organize a closet? Record it and earn points! Mow the lawn? Record that too. Tracking and celebrating “wins” is super motivating!

Feeling disorganized?

Track Utilities, Appliance Model Numbers & Home Upgrades

Recording your utility expenses in the same place as your maintenance history keeps you organized. Need to buy a fridge filter? A couple taps and you have access to all your model numbers. Get a new roof? Throw the date and warranty info into DIY Legends and have it for safe keeping.

Overwhelmed by choices?

Frequently Asked Questions

This tool is great for families of all kinds. The following guidelines will help you decide what integrating it might mean for your family life:

Young children Ages 4-10: This app is best used while alongside your children. They will learn to enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done, and their hunger to learn about their world will be infectious to you.

Pre-teens Ages 11-14: You should plan to get your child familiar with the app and your home to start with. They will probably pick up the ins and outs of the game very quickly, but they will have some questions about the house and how to use some basic tools. Use your own discretion in regards to their comfort level and safety. Don’t worry, they won’t be messing with wires or anything dangerous like that. As they use the game they will likely uncover problems that need more advanced help. The game will guide them to get professional help when necessary but be aware that humans are naturally curious and if you have a particularly ambitious one you are advised to set expectations and boundaries.

Teens Ages 15-19: Some teens in this age group will hit the ground running. Parental involvement is always encouraged, but it might quickly transition to you simply rewarding your teen for hitting goals and staying consistent. This age is critical for developing habits and a work ethic that will bless them as they transition to life on their own in college. Just like homeschool science experiments…remember to keep safety first!

Our tool, DIY Legends, is a “progressive web app”. It can be used on almost any device with internet access (desktop computers, tablets, phones etc). It is optimized for use on Android phones using the Chrome browser and iOS (iPhone) devices using the Safari browser. 

In a rental unit, many of the tasks in DIY Legends are the responsibility of the landlord. That certainly doesn’t mean they are getting done! While renters who use DIY Legends won’t get ALL of the benefits of excellent maintenance, they will certainly learn a lot and enjoy a safer, cleaner, and more efficient home. 

DIY Legends is designed with the beginner in mind. We all can benefit from a good system to keep us organized, but having step by step instructions only a click away ensures everybody can get up to speed. The vast majority of our ProActive Missions involve tasks that are intended by the manufacturers of the affected appliance or component to be completed by homeowners. Don’t worry, we’re not going to be re-wiring a furnace or blowing out walls together!

If your kids have their own email accounts that you want them to use to access DIY Legends you will be able to create a free Viewer’s Account with your own login credentials to track their progress.  Parts of the app will be shared, like the Utility Tracker, but the scoring or “game” side will all be done from the main User account. Many families just use mom or dad’s phone and work through the Missions together!

What's the value of a well maintained home?

Obviously preparing the next generation for adulthood is priceless, but with DIY Legends you are getting way more than just academics. Good home care has great value too! In fact, we have clients that pay us over $1000/yr to come to their home and provide the same Systematic Home Care that you can have with DIY Legends. Even at $1000, the investment pays for itself with fewer breakdowns, lower utility bills, and just the immeasurable value of a healthier, safer home. If you don't feel DIY Legends is returning enough value for you, we will refund your investment.

Mr. ProActive

I believe that with the right help, anyone can thrive at being a responsible homeowner. While running an exterior cleaning company for 10 years I saw homeowners struggle to consistently handle little routine things around the house. Sure, most people are changing their furnace filters, but fewer are keeping their smoke detectors in working order, and absolutely no one stays on top of all the 60+ other little things that would keep their appliances, plumbing, electrical & fire safety components from failing. These little things are what make a home safe and efficient.

This is why I started Mr. ProActive and developed a process called Systematic Home Care that can organize and complete the endless list of proactive maintenance tasks in your home. Involving my daughter and nephew in the process at our own homes was so enriching and fun, I asked myself, why not gamify this process so other families can enjoy this as much as we do? Now the same system I use is available right on your phone with DIY Legends! Families across the country are now sharing the satisfaction of caring for our homes together.
