Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hello Fellow Renovators and enthusiasts! Its exciting to see so many people share in the collective adventure of DIY. I do mainly cabinetry work in my spare time. Book shelves and rolling tv cabinets that my wife gently insists is not going in the bedroom. Like any bloke I've collected bits and bobs of information through the years concerning DIY. I've had good days and bad days as far as building goes. But in my past life I use to do kitchens and plumbing. I hope to hear from all of you and about your adventures in this land renovation!

@Chrissie35

Hi Chris, welcome to the commuinity.

I too have that attitude that  you have about giving things a go albeit I do have a hubby who's most helpful so allot of things that get done are done together.

I'm keen to see your cat enclosure when it's done??

Cheers,

Barbara

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hello Community!

Never knew you existed. Glad I do now. We did a knock, down, rebuild about three years ago and I’m still landscaping. Have done a lot in that time: retaining walls, paving, large concrete slabs, gates, screens, pergola (side of house shed), glass pool fencing and more than 60 sq metres of decking. I’ve still got heaps to do and still so much to learn. Have done a fair bit of DIY inside too. I enjoy it. In fact would have considered it a vocation but I’m getting on a bit now - the mind is willing but it takes a toll on the body. Am no good at painting - I like to build stuff and move on. Am hopeful to learn a heap from the community. Sausage on bread - I’ve always called them ‘champions’!; as in straight off the bbq .... “get these champs into you”. Thanks, Allan

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

G'day @Allan72, many thanks for joining us and for introducing yourself. It's fantastic to have you as part of the Workshop community.

 

Perhaps you could hit the Start a discussion button and share some photos of your landscaping work to date. I'm sure our members would love to see what you have achieved so far. You might also get some helpful suggestions about the remaining work that is still on your to-do list. 

 

Please get in touch anytime you need a hand.

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hello Community,
My wife n I about to move into our new home, we are going to be building a deck all the way around our new home so we will be picking all the community’s brains for any tips. My wife Sami is doing all the interior painting which she loves to do and my job is the outside. My timber n building skills are average to say the least but have done a fair bit of labourers work for chippys n brickies when I was young plus building cattle yards n fencing on remote stations. Looking forward to any tips the community can provide.👋
