About DIY Projects



Most of the articles on DIY Projects are step-by-step home improvement tutorials to help you care for your home, and do some of those nagging do-it-yourself jobs yourself.

DIY Projects was started when we bought an old, neglected house. While doing the long list of home improvement jobs we realised how much we knew about DIY, and how much more we had to learn. This page: Our extreme home-makeover shows you our journey to convert our purchase into a beautiful home for ourselves and children. All the pictures on this page were taken by me and are exclusively mine. If you wish to use any of them you’re required to link to the post on this site.
