The umbrella term, "home improvement," is used to describe a vast range of topics, including plumbing, carpentry, gardening, and electrical work.
Are there any synonyms to "home improvement" that have a similar meaning?
For context, I am looking for a word to describe the activities commonly associated with the term, "home improvement," but does not carry the "home" or "house" label. The reason I say this is because for most projects that fall under "home improvement," there is no inherent quality that indicates that they are necessarily related to improving a home.
In other words, I'm looking for an umbrella term that describes physical tasks that one might assume fall under "the trades" or that are completed by a "contractor."
