Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hi, I am Anna. My husband Jim and I bought a bushblock in Nsw. We are now building a house as owner builders. Never built anything before, but having so much fun doing it. Love to learn and see how other people are doing things. Looking forward to go through the blog and other pages. Cheers Anna

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Welcome to Workshop Anna (@Wangara). It's fantastic to have you join us. 

 

Congratulations on your purchase. This must be such an exciting time for you building your own house. You might like to connect with members like @ProjectPete@Baretta11 and @TheFoxSays who are also building new homes at the moment. @Baretta11 has documented her adventure on this thread - From scratch - while I believe @ProjectPete is just about to get started on the build of his new double-storey home.

 

Perhaps you could start a new discussion and share your plans? It would be great to see what you have planned, and community members would be more than happy to provide advice and inspiration along the way.

 

Thanks again for joining us.

Hi Anna,

Welcome to you and Jim to the community.

I am no expert having gone through plenty of hiccups with the building of our home but 10 years on, we are almost ready to move in, just a few more skirting boards to do, some painting etc... so it is very exciting.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions and if I can't help you someone in the community will!!

Good luck with your project start in 2018

Cheers,

Barbara

Hello,

I am a sixteen year old boy who loves welding, using machines like tracked skid steer loaders and dump trucks.

My main hobby is Radio Control cars, I have an Axial Wraith Spawn, that I paid $620 for including the battery and charger

Hi Ken (@bindowan109)

 

Many thanks for introducing yourself. You'll find lots of like-minded retirees here in the Workshop community who also love having a go at D.I.Y. and maintenance jobs around the house. Feel free to post whenever you need a hand or have something to share. It would be great to see some of the projects that have been keeping you busy lately.

 

Thanks again,

 

Jason

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hello ALL , Hi my name is Neil , My mate calls me Neilus so this is my Intro name . I very much enjoy Woodworking , anything I can do with wood on a small scale I'll have a go at . I have made two Rail Racks for my Wonderful Sister . One is outdoors for Airing / Drying Clothes , the Second is for indoors where we hang the Saucepans etc . Also a small rack for her Oven Trays , Cake Tins & Cutting Boards . As you can see they are smallish items that I could handle on my own . You may ask why but I have very severe neck & back Issues that limit me to what I can do . Prior to my injury I was like most of you that could wield an Electric Planer ; an Angle Grinder etc , etc . Now my work capacity is limited to the small or lighter applications around the house . As We are Renters there is very little that can be done anyway so if something arises I / We will attempt to accomplish the task . Thank you all for supplying the projects and ideas you have done or intend doing . They are fantastic work and I appreciate being able to connect with these and even learn more from the experienced community members . I wish you all well in your forth-coming projects and I look forward to seeing / learning more as time moves on . Good Luck and May you Enjoy your chosen tasks even more as you progress . Cheers ALL ; Neilus .
